nice spot for a nice spot of tea

nice vibe, friendly and knowledgable staff, even if the place is a little pretentious with their tea. Tea menu is thicker than many good wine lists, but is easy enough to read and navigate. Enjoyed my selection of black tea

This place is amazing!! The menu is incredible, teas from around the world. The sweets are delicious. I had Chai and a raspberry brown butter cake/tart. Both were outstanding! After enjoying both we were told all of there delicious desserts are gluten free. I'm not gluten free and usually find gluten free sweets gritty and not so good. But these... More

My husband loves this shop and we stop every time we are in Asheville. There as traditional tables in the front and low, japanese-style tables in the back. I don't drink hot tea, so I can't speak as to the quality of the drinks, but the chill vibe and quiet atmosphere are very appealing. We were here on an overcast... More

While visiting Asheville for the first time, I found this place and saw it had great reviews. My hubs and I were excited to try something new. We Parked and paid for an hour thinking surely that was long enough. After sitting almost an entire hour waiting for our tea, we had to get it to go. So much for... More

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
