This evening we were privileged to listen to a performance on the tea house patio by West African musician Arouna Diarra who sings while playing the n'gona and balafone. He was ably accompanied by Patrick Fitzsimons on guitar. A light meal of hummus with warm pita bread and veggies along with a substantial quinoa tabbouleh accompanied by a delicious iced chai relaxed us and prepared us for the musical performance. During a break in the music we ordered an almond amaretto teacake and a pot of hot Himalayan Darjeeling tea with milk to round out the evening experience. The design of the facility, the unhurried service, and the presence of a rich mixture of people of various ages, lifestyles, and interests made us comfortably at ease in our surroundings. As evening deepened, the experience was further enriched by an amazing sky that complemented with dramatic lighting the aural enjoyment from the music. We are here in Black Mountain for only a few weeks, but would gladly become regulars at Dobra Tea if we lived nearby. It is a great place to get quiet and really appreciate being alive.
