This is the Russian Tea House. I'm told it was purchased, disassembled, brought to Boulder and reassembled. Sometime a bit formal, which is really difficult to pull off in Boulder, the menu is limited but the offerings are really good.

Loved it, the atmosphere makes it great and the food and drinks are great. The service was great also. I did find that some people went in groups and they ordered some type of special desert tray that takes a day to prepare, I dont know what was on it but it looked great and fun. Next time I will...

Definitely an experience! Came here for breakfast early Sunday morning as I knew it gets pretty busy. They dont take reservations same day. Anyway the decor is beautiful. They have an interesting menu with an extensive tea list. I had the jasmine tea which was perfect for a cold day. Must take pictures and enjoy the view.

I stopped here for morning tea during a business trip to Boulder. This is a unique place to visit with very interesting architecture and incredible detail. The tea was very good and extremely reasonably priced.

This exquisite Tea House is a find. Even if you do not have time for dining walk around to see the architecture and colorful panels. It is beautifully composed and a lovely gift from Tajikistan to its Sister City of Boulder. I enjoyed lunch--chose the delicious wraps which were messy but very tasty. Choices are unusual and the waitstaff is... More

Anyone who comes to visit us in Boulder is due for a major treat. We ALWAYS take them to this teahouse. It's hard to hold each other's eyes in conversation due to the wonders of art all around in the construction and decor of the room! Wandering glances and gasps and "oos & ahhs" abound as we smell some of... More

This tea house is worth visiting simply for the architecture. The tea was fresh and flavorful, and the gingerbread tea cake I had was delicious. We tried panda green tea and lady grey's garden and bought 4oz of each to take home. I recommend going around 3pm on a Wednesday and then walking around the farmer's market held outside that...

This restaurant is so unique in many ways - the arts, the history, the food. What bring it down from 5 to 3 stars is the really bad service! When we arrived at the front, the greeter saw us (eye contact) but walked away. Then the other greeter came and seated us. We arrived at exactly 10am for breakfast and... More

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.
