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

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

This experience is so unique and worth a visit while in Asheville. It is an authentic tea house with gluten free treats and dishes. The owners travel and have their own tea sources in Japan, China and elsewhere. This is highest and purest grade teas including herbal teas. The food is all locally sources. It's beautiful inside, quiet and serene.... More

We wanted to try something different other than beers in Asheville. The sign said boba tea serve here. So, we gave it a try. When I ask if they have taro or jackfruit, they said no, we have Jasmine or green tea. No taro or jackfruit flavour bubble or boba tea was a dead give away!! However, the staffs were... 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
