Be sure to read the history of the Teahouse, which was given to Boulder in 1987 by it's sister city Dushanbe, Tajikistan and erected and open to the public in 1998. It sits in a wonderful location, downtown Boulder, across from Central Park. The food is excellent, great service... More

This is one of my absolute favorite places in Boulder. I always bring any guests who visit! The architecture and art pieces inside the teahouse are made by artisans from Tajikistan, and almost all of the work is hand-carved and hand-painted. It is stunning. When the weather is warm enough, their outdoor patio is fantastic (filled with beautiful flowers and... More

We've gone here for tea and breakfast many times. It's a beautiful building and I recommend stopping here for at least tea if not a meal! You won't be disappointed!

My sister-in-law and I started our New Year with a visit to the Dushanbe Tea House in Boulder. One wouldn't usually expect to step from a wintry Boulder street, where families were ice skating on a rink into a Tajikistan tea house, but that is exactly what happens among the delicately carved pillars, carved and painted ceilings and beautiful statues,...

Certainly not your average dining experience - other than somewhat slow service, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is one of a kind... a little on the pricey side but still worth it given the overall experience - and BTW, it's OK to order a beer if you are not a tea drinker...

The tea house is welcoming and lively whether you sit inside or out! We went for an non-typical American dish - the Indian dosa - and it was delicious! The tea list is huge and our table got a couple of pots to share between us so we could try more than one. Had a great time and even brought... 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.
