We visited here having never been in an authentic tea house. They have a huge menu of hot teas and a few for cold teas. It was warm ouside so we went for cold teas. I had a New Moon which came in a glass the size used for a Belgian beer, even had a slice of orange. Very tasty.... More

The moment I entered the shop, I realized it was a eclectic atmosphere, This tea/ cafe was a combination of traditional and modern, rustic and appeal and calm and vibrant in its own way. The shop had around 60+ varieties of tea and if you are a tea connoisseur, it is an absolute haven for you. They also had interesting... More

We chanced upon Dobra on a hot sticky day when the streets were crowded and noisy. What a relief! We took our shoes off, put our feet up and enjoyed the ambience as well as the tea here (the tea menu is circa 100 pages! Don't worry -- there's an index!)

Stopped in here a few days ago to kill some time while visiting downtown Asheville and I am sure glad I did! I had seen Dobra several times over the past few years and never thought to enter. However, I was in the mood for some cold bubble tea and saw it on their outside sign so we stopped. My... More

We are so glad our friend told us to make sure to go to Dobra. We love it. You get special service at your table by really knowledgeable staff. Feels very unique. There's a matcha drink with Dragon in the name that is exceptional. And the bean mochi cakes are the best I've ever had. very vegan friendly.

-Super zen-feeling place. If you're looking for calm with a little Asheville wonderfulness thrown in, this is the place. -The tea menu is a little book of over 80 pages. It's a fascinating read. Or you can just tell the super-knowledgable servers what you like and they'll recommend something wonderful. -You ring a tiny bell when you're ready to order,... More

Go here for the ambience! You can get any kind of tea and sweets - esp. if you are gluten or dairy free!

I really liked the relaxing environment and their special tea! I loved that my friend and I could sit down together for a long time to talk about anything. Very friendly environment.
