The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is nestled against the Rocky Mountain Foothills in Boulder Colorado. Sitting alongside Boulder Creek in Central Park, the Teahouse is considered one of Boulder's most attractive and popular tourist attractions, as well as being a local favorite for great food, tea, and atmosphere.

Completely built by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration. The elaborate and creative teahouse now sits as a reminder to the citizens of Boulder to value cultural diversity, global cooperation, and international friendship.

What a great place for tea & a snack!

We dropped into the tea house before a hike at Chautauqua. The bartender had lots of knowledge about tea and great suggestions. We enjoyed chatting with him and lived the homemade chai in the latte form :)

The tea house is gorgeous inside and warrants a visit for brunch to marvel at the detail. The food is overpriced and few choices.

The bathrooms FILTHY and always... More

This is a beautiful building. The food is international and owned by a local business with a local farm. The tea selection is extensive. The Chai is amazing. You can go just to sit at the tea bar in the back if you're in a hurry.

Spectacularly exotic building. More types of tea that you can ever imagine. Good brunch items-our favorites were the the Dosas and Afghan Mantu. My tea was gorgeous because it became a flower (see photo) and it was delicious. Worth a trip just for the beauty of the building, but for the food.

Owned by the same company that own the Leaf (Three Leafs Farm) the food of course was great. I ate here many times when I was a resident of Boulder and coming back for a visit it did not disappoint. David was our waiter, and he rocks!!!
