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.

Along with a great selection of teas, this establishment is a restaurant with excellent world-themed food in a remarkably ornate building that was built in and donated by Boulder's sister city in Tajikistan. All of this, along with attractive landscaping, is set in Central Park along the Boulder River. The service was friendly, attentive, and gave excellent recommendations. Everything we... More

This place is wonderful! There are so many teas to try! I had the precious pear, wonderful. My nine year old son tried the strawberry lemon and was thrilled. It is a lovely place, and if you are so inclined, you can dine on a raised platform with pillows! What a relaxing time. We went for dinner and the food... More

Dushanbe Teahouse is a must-see if you get to Boulder. It is a beautiful Tajik teahouse created by Boulders sister city, Dushanbe, in Tajikstan. Words cannot describe this place. It really needs to be seen. Eclectic menu and excellent teas

This place has over 100 flavors of tea- some normal ones like green and black, but some more exotic ones like African vanilla nut rooibos and moroccan mint. I took home two bags of real tea leaves (you need a strainer and kettle). The food is really good two- I got kabobs which didn't fill me up (I'm an athletic... More

This review is purely for the tea. My friends took me here when I was visiting because I am a HUGE fan of tea time! There is an enormous menu of different teas. It was very difficult to choose from. We all finally made our selections and after about 10 minutes, the server brought us our tea. Each of us... More

I have eaten at the teahouse a number of times. I went again two weeks ago. It is consistently good! Love the building too. I have been for both breakfast and lunch and even attended the Tea Festival that is held in the summer. Don't be fooled by the name -- they also sell coffee and alcohol!

If you haven't eaten here in a while or never eaten here before, give yourself a treat! The menu is not huge, but that is OK because there is probably something there for just about every diet and taste. In short, "try it you'll love it!".

A must see place for the architecture alone; beautifully carved pillars with different designs, Islamic tile work reminiscent of Iranian buildings and interesting ceiling paintings. The food's pretty good too; my hubby had the Harissa chicken which was well spiced and tasty while I had a noodle salad nicely washed down by their white tea. They muster a great selection... More

This is definitely a different building in colorful Colorado, transplanted from Central Asia to the hippie communes of Boulder. If you want to go into another culture without leaving the US, order some tea, sit down, and admire the building, which was built in Tajikistan before being transported over, piece by piece. The three of us reserved a slot for... More

Tajikistan decor and international food makes the perfect place to catch up with friends and have a delicious cup of tea. I have enjoyed many afternoons and evenings here sharing a pot of tea and stories. Don't miss this spot if you are in Boulder.
