We had breakfast here and what a great experience it was. The building was dismantled in China and brought to Boulder and reconstructed. It is beautiful inside and the quality of the food and service was just outstanding.

We got the Greek meatballs and hummus plate—neither of which were anything to write home about. We got the Snowblossom tea and the Tranquility tea (really missed an opportunity here by not naming it Tranquilitea, but I digress). Both teas were lovely! It was so...More

I’ve been here a few times, but this last visit was so warm and wonderful. The inside of this place is museum status. It’s ornately carved and painted woodwork that is just breathtaking. Even if you go for just a look around — it’s so...More

The entire experience is very pleasant. The room is airy and unique. The staff is attentive and helpful. We enjoyed herbal teas and delicious plates. There can be a long wait - we rearranged our schedule to avoid the queue.

Our friends invited us to have dinner on our visit to Boulder. It was unexpectedly busy and noisy due to the celebratory 20th anniversary of the teahouse's sister city relationship. Our decision to eat outside next to the creek under the sun umbrellas instead of...More

The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is nestled against the Rocky Mountain Foothills in Boulder Colorado. Sitting alongside Boulder Creek in Central Park, the Teahouse is considered one of Boulder's most attractive and popular tourist attractions, as well as being a local favorite for great food, tea, and atmosphere. Completely built by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration. The elaborate and creative teahouse now sits as a reminder to the citizens of Boulder to value cultural diversity, global cooperation, and international friendship.
