The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is one of the most intricate buildings I’ve ever seen. What makes this place even more special is that it is located in Colorado hundreds of miles from where it was constructed. This ornate teahouse was a gift from the mayor and people of Dushanbe in Tajikistan to Boulder.
More on Tea Time at the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse below.
This beautiful teahouse was constructed by 40 artisans in several cities of Tajikistan. “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 craft man-ship is so impeccable you can hardly believe that this was built twice.
When visiting my best friend in Boulder we wandered around Central Park towards the tea house and were quickly in awe. Unfortunately, we had just come from lunch but that didn’t stop us from munching on some Greek meatballs and Indian Samosas.
Both were so yummy we thoroughly regretted having eaten before coming to the teahouse.
They have some yummy cocktails and I order a Lavender Moscow Mule, a spin on my go to drink. Of course seeing as this was a tea house I had to get some tea. The staff is amazing and our amazing waitress helped me pick a Blooming Jasmine & Crysthanamum tea. Blooming teas reveal themselves after hot water is poured into the glass. So you can have a pretty tea and drink it too.
If you are in Boulder Colorado this place is a must.
