Yumm

Such a great place tucked away on Lexington Ave. They have so many amazing teas and it's a very relaxed environment. BUT don't let your 3 year old ring the tea bell or they'll go into freakout mode.

Quirky and dedicated to principle is one thing and is great But a sourfaced rule- happy waiter is not what you hope for in an international teahouse in a diverse city We were rained out of eating our simple sugar crepes at the little creperie next door, came in to the teahouse and ordered two big pots of tea After...

I love this place.. The colors, the seating the ' the making of the tea' area.. Its so low key that you pay as you leave. It was all perfect and so was my masala chai.. And massive cookie. Beautiful presentation of the tea. So many kinds it was hard to decide.

My daughter lives in Asheville and she took my other daughter and me to Dobra Tea for a chance to relax and catch up on just talking. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, people friendly without being in your face chatty. The first room that you enter is open plan with several small tables of 2 and 4 comfortable chairs... More

I'm so glad this place exists. Relaxed, calm, quiet atmosphere with more teas than I knew existed. Their tea menu is a large book. Feels like you've stepped into a different time and culture. We also saw a great musical performance here once and it still maintained a calm and peaceful atmosphere. Their snacks are healthy and unique. Their teas... More

Quiet place near downtown to enjoy a cup of tea. So many options from all corners of the world. The tea gurus are happy to share their knowledge about the teas with you. Wonderful, cozy place for a for a mid-afternoon touring break of the city.

Dobra Tea is a beautifully presented tea house in downtown Asheville. Choose from cafe tables or floor cushions and make yourself comfortable as it could be a while before you're provided with any service, even when it's not full. When the menu is finally provided it's long and detailed, providing good descriptions of the tea's on offer. I was a... More

The first time I walked into Dobra, I loved the cozy atmosphere and the friendly staff. I have since been there often. It is a nice place to meet a friend for tea or bring your work and find a quiet corner to write or work. It is a great place to meet a new connection. You may comfortably linger... More
