The Dushanbe Teahouse offers a fairytale setting and nearly 100 varieties of tea for your enjoyment. The building was a gift from the craftsmen of Tajikistan upon becoming Boulder’s sister city. Lavish paintings, Persian motifs and overlapping patterns on every surface make this a space to linger in. The handmade ceramic panels on the walls inside and out are simply magical. With carved teak columns and walls and hand-painted ceiling, the teahouse is a jewel in the heart of Boulder.
Tea varieties in black canisters decorate the bar.
With names like Russian Caravan, White Monkey King, Fairytale Dreams, Moroccan Mint and Lady Grey's Garden, there's a tea here for everyone including children.
Snow Blossom blends green tea with chamomile, rose, jasmine and lavender. Butterfly Flowers is served in a glass cup so you can see the jasmine and chrysanthemum buds unfolding. You can also purchase loose tea to take home. The waitstaff is happy to discuss the differences among the many teas on offer.
The teahouse is open for lunch, brunch and dinner. The food is international in flavor and deliciously prepared. This is the perfect place to enjoy a winter day.
No matter what you choose to eat or drink don't forget to look up. The beauty of the hand carved and painted ceiling is a treat for the eyes and soul!
Happy Holidays from Boulder, Colorado!
