Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse

When Strudel and I decided May would be our “Out and About” month, I knew I had to blog about one of my favorite places in Colorado, Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse.  Since it’s Mother’s Day this is a great place to treat mom!  You can sit indoors amongst the persian decor or sit outside along the Boulder Creek and listen to it flow by as you drink from a selection of hundreds of teas!

Dushanbe, Tajikistan is the sister city to Boulder, Colorado and in the late 1980s plans began to create a teahouse to celebrate the relationship.  The tea house was constructed in Dushanbe, disassembled and then shipped to Boulder and reassembled.

        

Inside amongst the beautifully carved ceilings and cedar columns, you can enjoy not only tea but also wine, delectable food and desserts.

I love spending a few hours with friends and family over a steaming pot of hot tea here.  My favorite breakfast is their American Breakfast which includes bacon, sausage, eggs, potatoes and a house made pop tart.

A friend introduced me to this place in 2000 and since then I have enjoyed their homemade granola, chickpea kufteh, Indonesia peanut noodles, samosas, Russian beet salad and more.  Although their food is wonderful I go there for the tea!  Green, black, white, herbal and more, their selection is unparalleled!  This day I enjoyed the mango black Tea but I often enjoy ginger lemonade green tea!

If you find yourself anywhere near Boulder, even a few hours away, this place is worth the drive to Boulder alone!
