Comforting tea on a damp winter day

Just out doing a few errands, stopped for a hot tea. First time visiting. Wonderful selection of tea, properly prepared. Casual, share a space with another couple as all the tables where occupied. Delightful conversation

They had a great food selection and teas. The food is great more than enough for a lunch. I had the mezze plates, cucumber salad, and miso soup. Yummy not bad for a teahouse. They also have your standard tea scones as well. Service was good and fast. Only gripe I had is that it might be hard to find... More

Dobra is a fun and relaxing little spot to grab a cup or pot of tea and hang out. My only gripes with it is that the menu is a little overwhelming (a happy problem) and the seated service is a bit awkward (less so) in that you're served by ringing a bell, and then go to a counter to... More

Dobra Tea is a lovely tea shop and store. They have so many different teas and are experts about it. It's a nice and quiet atmosphere and the staff is very friendly.

Found this little Gem while wondering around town. My girlfriend enjoyed the tea. I just thought it was such a cute and eclectic little place!

Went to Portland and were disappointed with everything apart from this tea room. Found purely by chance. Bit quirky, with expansive range of teas served by friendly staff and proper china teapots etc. Small bits available too. Strongly recommended for lovers of tea.

There are a few herbal, rooibus, and one English but all come with a detailed description of how it picked or what it tastes... More

I love tea, loose-leaf tea from far-away lands. Ever since I moved here I was looking for a replacement for my home town tea room. One of my absolute favorites is Makaibari Green which is grown exclusively on the Makaibari Farm in India, it's organic and biodynamic. Unfortunately it isn't available in most shops, darn exclusivity. When I first came... More

I stopped by this shop while walking back to my hotel while staying in Portland. It smells amazing the second you walk through the front door! It was a relaxing and quiet spot. I purchased the Moroccan mint tea. I have spent a lot of time in Morocco - this is the closest tea I have found in the states... More

My husband and two sons, 10 and 12, stopped by Dobra unexpectedly on a cold rainy afternoon for a spot of tea. It was an amazing experience. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The tea was amazing. The atmosphere is relaxing, very calming and quiet. I could not believe that even my 10 and 12 year old sons loved... More
