Wonderfully quaint tea shop

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... read 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

There is no question that these people really know their tea. But they also know how to create a relaxing and invigorating environment, which you can escape from the stresses of the outside world by enjoying a cup of one of their many flavorful teas. Go for the tea and food, but stay for the peace and tranquility. And they... More

A friend of mine was coming from out of town for a visit and I wanted to meet with her some place that was charming and unusual. I had just happened to park my car in front of Dobra a few days before when I was in the neighborhood for another reason, and through the window it looked beautiful. My... More

We go to Dobra Tea every time we are in Portland. The place is very cozy and you can choose to either sit at the tables with chairs or on little stages with pillows. You can stay there as long as you wish, have sweets or savory snacks and all sorts of tea. Everyone is super friendly.

The new location on Exchange St is wonderful. It's a great environment for sitting with friends and the service is excellent. There is a huge variety to choose from the menu is like a little encyclopedia of tea. Would highly recommend!

Looking for a place to get away in Portland and feel like you've escaped? Try Dobra tea. For more open and with lots more ambient light than the old location, it still has the same inviting vibe.with a huge list of teas predominately from Asia – the Chick-fil-A China, Japan and Korea, there is a wonderful array of green, white,...

Dobra Tea has an extremely comfortable, relaxed atmosphere and an incredible selection of teas. I've been here twice in two weeks and will come back anytime I am in Portland. I was warmly welcomed on a rainy afternoon and read until I had finished two pots of tea. A wonderful place.

Wish we had more of this type of tea house in big cities, a very 'zen' place where you could sit quietly to meditate on the stuff of life, or enjoy tea and other light fare with friends (in quiet conversations). Different kinds of seating arrangements, the idea is to take you away from the bustling city and provide you... More
