Description: 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.

I came here for tea and met someone inside. The staff is very friendly and helpful in selecting a tea. The building has quite an interesting history and is stunning. Pretty amazing structure and worth walking by just to see. They have a very nice outdoor seating area and good food as well (from the menu). Would definitely come again... More

We stopped by for a Saturday lunch and ordered from the Brunch menus. The chai tea was excellent! Our group ordered it iced and hot, and both were delicious - the best that I have ever had. The brunch menu had American cuisine such as eggs and bacon, eggs benedict, and pancakes. There was also a wide variety of ethnic... More

I used to work in a tea room in high school and have always enjoyed the art of high tea. I was so excited to find out about the tearoom. We made reservations in advance, as the website asks. The building was stunning. It was a rainy afternoon; a perfect day for tea. Our waiter, Jeremy, was extremely helpful with... More

A friend highly recommended the Boulder Tea House for my trip to Denver & Boulder based on the architecture and the teas. We were really impressed with the ambiance of the garden-like space. The architecture and interiors were beautiful. The tea list is quite impressive if you are a tea drinker and they also have a variety of other mocktails.... More

The bill without the tip was $65.00 and included an 3 different teas, 3 entrees, and a dessert. The entree names are more complicated than I can remember, however, let me describe them for you. I had the... More

The Teahouse has some of the most worldly inspired dishes that I've had in Boulder...and yet still they use local farm produce and ingredients. They have a huge menu of tea as well as tea infused cocktails and desserts. The main dishes are delicious. I would highly recommend the pork dish.
