This is a cute tea house but be prepared to wait a bit for your tea. My husband and i stopped in here for a cup of tea while walking about in downtown Asheville. We had to wait about 20 minutes for our menus but we were on vacation and in no rush so it wasn't a big deal. My... More

Every time I'm in Asheville I have to take some time for Dobra tea! Masala tea is a favorite since returning from India, so happy to find it here and sit in the cozy booths reminiscing on travels. Love love love dobra!

We went there by the advise of our local friends. Such a great spot! Must visit while in Asheville. Very cosy, pleasant staff. Great menu with interesting description of all the tea varieties they have there.

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.

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
