nice setting, probably a very busy social hangout with lots of options for guests. I really liked the Dobra Tea House in Black Mountain more, just because it was so peaceful.

Very impressed! We were greeted at the door and told to sit anywhere with opinions of a floor cushion lounge, a large booth lounge, or tables/window bar area. You are given a very extensive list of teas to choose from & a little bell to ring when ready. Each tea has it's own page to read about tea & it's origins. Highly recommend to anyone who loves teas.

This place advertises that all desserts are gluten free. Pretty exciting news to those who have celiac disease and have a medical necessity to avoid gluten. But we must ask questions about our food, one of the most basic of which is: where was that dessert processed? Was it a dedicated facility or is it possible it has come into contact with gluten so is therefore not safe for a celiac? I am not attached to the answer except to need it to be accurate. I actually called ahead and the gentleman on the phone did not at first understand my question and then seemed put out that I asked but was willing to name the producing bakery if I wanted to investigate. I decided to skip it, but, coming across the place while walking, I stopped in and asked again. One fellow tried to help and wrote down the email of the baker while the other fellow unhelpfully said he wouldn't recommend trying their food. So, if you are going to proudly (??) offer GF food, while in the world can you not be bothered to know about the baker? I found this to be the typical attitude in "GF friendly" Asheville. Don't bother.

We hit Asheville on a Carolina roll starting from our London UK home, flying to Charlotte, 4 Spoleto days in Charleston, a few more days with friends in Ft. Mill/Charlotte and then on to Appalachia.
Dobra Tea looked unusual (hah!) so we dropped in after checking in at the nearby Renaissance. If like me you've never seen this comprehensive a tea menu you'll be thrilled at the outset. My wife and I ordered two contrasting drinks and a tasty non-gluten bite. The fare was excellent, but the experience was transcendent – deja vu? jamais vu? parallel 1969-70 San Francisco/Venusian universe?! I mean these youngish people (all over downtown) with their tattooed limbs and sexy creative fashions seemed an impossible delightful breed. The answer? I don't know. University was out and the latest festival was over (it was Monday June 2, 2014).
Anyway it suits Dobra Tea with its open windowed wifi lobby and low-tabled couched interior chambers. (Now check out the other locations internationally as well). I strongly recommend nearby Mayfel's (Cajun) for lunch and the Laughing Seed for a veggie dinner par excellence. But I wouldn't count on the good freak atmosphere in Asheville...by the next morning and despite the mountain vortex we were somehow back to normal...though happy and content.
