Tea and lunch

Even if you don't like tea and aren't hungry, you should still take time to visit this tea house. The building is beautiful, so much carved work, it is a piece of art! But if you do have time , the teas and meals are delicious.

I love to eat at the Teahouse because of the unique variety of menu options available. The combinations of food make the menu appealing to people who eat there frequently, and they update their options throughout the year. Many items native to the region are available and include a variety of fresh vegetables, not the meats swimming in sauces that... More

The atmosphere of this place is great. Try to sit outside on the daytime and enjoy the fresh air. An awesome collection of teas. If you want a visually stimulating tea, choose one of the gorgeous blooming teas. The food is pretty decent, but the clear standout for me is the Burrata Crostini, which is to die for.

We LOVE the Boulder Dushanbe Tea House. We recently completed our fifth trip there, this time with two of our teens who also love tea. We had Sunday brunch and all shared the Palatschinken (my favorite by a little), the Whole Wheat Chai Pancakes (yummy), and the Kookoo Sabzi (more, please)! We loved them all and while each of us...

What a find! Unique, jewel-box atmosphere with a fascinating story. Menu is authentic, ethnic food with a dish from every region of the globe. Healthy options too, everything was delicious. It was a hot day so we skipped the hot tea, opted for refreshing rainforest iced tea which was a cooling compliment to our flavorful lunches. Great!

This restaurant is unique with great food and interesting history about where it was built and brought to Boulder. The Sunday tea is always a hit with out of town guests.

In two days, I managed to sip chai & eat here 3 times. That is all about their teas & meals, not about me. The staff is courteous, giving directions around Boulder and the atmosphere is fabulously artsy including a shaded patio by the rushing creek.

This is my second visit and as before it was very nice. Pleasant surroundings and LOTS of tea. Love the gingerbread! You can stare at the ceilings for your whole visit. The menus change over time so indulge when you find a favorite. The kitchen gets a bit noisy and covers up the peaceful music. If the kitchen staff could... More
