I took my family from out of town here for lunch. They are world travelers so I thought they would enjoy both Boulder and the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse. Which they did both! The wait was a bit long. It wasn't because such a long line. I think maybe short of staff. Plenty of open tables outside were free but still... More

Ended up here after walking around Pearl Street mall and visiting the market. It was a very wonderful experience. It's like walking into a painting/sculpture. My husband and I ordered teas. Very delicious. The waitress was kind enough to go over the steeping times with us. Even though we only stopped for tea, we ended up having appetizers too and... More

This place is unique, delicious, and a real treat. I had breakfast one day, and went back for lunch later in the week. Wish I could visit on a regular basis! The interior is fun and a true taste of a tea house in Boulder's sister city halfway around the world. A chance to try different dishes, but also some... More

We absolutely love this teahouse. We make a point to go everything we are in Boulder. It's a beautiful place with great food and drink. And it's not all tea although the extensive tea selection is impressive.

This place was recommended by a friend, so we visited on a beautiful Sunday in October. There was a wait for patio seating, so we opted for indoors. Spectacular interior architecture with intricate painted ceiling. Wait staff was very prompt and pleasant. The tea selection is extensive and I enjoyed an iced version of a very subtle fruit flavored tea.... More

They have over 100 teas, we sampled 3 excellent ones. The Teahouse was built in Tajikistan, dissembled and relocated to Boulder, their sister city. The decoration and architecture is lovely. This place is a must visit!

Too many flies to eat there. What kind of Honey handle part of the management is aware of the problem. They are trying to mitigate the problem but obviously it is effective.

The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is nestled against the Rocky Mountain Foothills in Boulder Colorado. Sitting alongside Boulder Creek in Central Park, the Teahouse is considered one of Boulder's most attractive and popular tourist attractions, as well as being a local favorite for great food, tea, and atmosphere.

Completely built by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration. The elaborate and creative teahouse now sits as a reminder to the citizens of Boulder to value cultural diversity, global cooperation, and international friendship.
