Delicious and delightful

My girlfriends and I stopped here for afternoon tea. I had the Masala Rooibos tea with almond milk and a black sesame and ginger gluten free tea cake. Yum yum. We enjoyed sitting in the little Moroccan tea area. It was heavenly. Might have to go back today!

Stopped by with my family while on vacation and had tea. They have one of the most varied selection of tea I have ever experienced. I got the Masala tea and now it is my wife's favorite tea. We had to go back in later so she could purchase a box of this tea to take home.

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 again the... 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!
