We visited Dobra in Black Mountain and had a wonderful experience. The person who helped us was very knowledgeable about the teas and gave us good direction in choosing from the extensive tea list. We sat on cushions on the floor while we had our tea and the most comforting, warming, soothing Aryuvedic Kitchari. I would love the recipe! I... More

We went in March when it was still pretty cold here in Asheville. It's not your ordinary quick tea stop. The ambiance is very relaxting. They have two areas, one where you can remove your shoes and sit on the floor and the other area has tables and chairs. The tea menu was very extensive, which could be slightly overwhelming... More

So, I slipped away from my family into a vegan tea room. :-) To say I was out of my league regarding teas would be honesty at its simplest. So I conservatively had them whip up an herbal blend of chamomile and lavender. Lovely. I then ordered the vegan spring rolls - see pic. Divine. A fun and unique experience.... More

Visiting this tea house was the highlight of my trip to Asheville. I went three times in one day! This is everything the perfect tea house should be. There is ample seating (w/o the crowded feeling) in the type of your choice - cafe style with chairs and a table, cushiony bench and a table, or (my favorite) on the... More

I love going to this wonderful tea house. It's magical. The menu is a little over whelming but the staff is so helpful. Make sure you go on Tuesday and have your taro cards read

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
