Tea tea and more tea!!

We were in Asheville for the weekend and happened to walk by Dobra Tea and decided to stop for a little break. This place is such a gem! There are a wide variety of tea available and it even comes with a book (menu) that explains all the tea! So informative! Love this place. Will definitely stop by... read more

This is my favorite place to go to in Asheville. I take all my friends and family here. They just opened up another teahouse in west Asheville. I look forward to checking it out. I love the extensive tea menu. The waitstaff are usually pretty good. The drinks and service aren't very consistent. The service can be a little slow,... More

My wife heard about this place so we stopped there after dinner. She has to be gluten-free and we were so happy to find a good selection of gluten-free pastries. It also has an amazing selection of teas and some real nice hand-made mugs and cups. We also stopped by the next morning on our way out of town. I... More

Dobra Tea is one of my favorite places in Asheville. I love the atmosphere, the staff, and the drinks and food. Even if you think you don't like tea, go to Dobra and talk to one of the employees about tea. They'll find you a tea you like. And the food is so good and so good for you and... More

My honey and I met for our first date at Dobra, 3 years ago, so we go there every Independence Day to re-enact that meeting. The extensive tea menu is a delight to peruse and the little desserts are tasty. Service can be slow, but this is a sit and relax establishment; it's about the atmosphere. Don't come here in...

There were so many options and so little time! I had Memories of Prague and Chai, Chai, Chai, while my husband tried a blend of peppermint and ginger. Delicious!

Went there not knowing what to expect. Took a little longer to get our tea and food than I expected, however, it was worth it. The selection of teas can be daunting (especially when Lipton tea bags are my normal cup of tea). They have a book that explains the different flavors. The staff was very helpful in explaining the...

Great atmosphere, great service, reasonable prices, and great food! My wife and I visited for the first time as part of our 30th anniversary trip. It was unique and a great choice for our "tea time." We had our individual selection of teas, a lima bean humus which was awesome, and a pistachio rose cardamon cookie. I can't think of... More

Really cute tea shop, fits right in in artistic, downtown Asheville! The owner/server was very nice and there were lots of Bohemian chintzes and poufs to rest on as well. Cute foray away from the average coffee shops nearby.
