This is a wonderful place to have tea! My friend and I went on a busy day, so it was a bit before we were seated. However, once we were, the service was very prompt, and the food delicious. We shared a pot of Green Anemone tea, which is kind of like a blooming tea without the flowers. It tasted like a very light, perfect green tea. It was served in a glass teapot so we could watch it open as it steeped, and we had two little stone cups to pour it into.

We also had one raw chocolate cherry/ goji berry truffle apiece. They were simply fabulous. It was the perfect kind of snack to have with tea.

We left there feeling so much more relaxed and at peace with ourselves. Dobra has an excellent atmosphere, a really chill staff who really know what they’re doing, and the prices are very reasonable. We will be returning soon!

Bio

Hello! I’m an American college student, trying to find my way in the world. I love literature, politics, and tea.

Favorites: Flavored black and green teas (anything with chocolate, nutty, or floral notes!), oolong, pu- erh, citrus, berry-flavored green or white blends, yerba mate, blooming teas, medicinal herbals (peppermint, chamomile, Tulsi, echinacea, etc.)

I have a love-hate relationship with kombucha, and I’m very picky about my chai- It has to have a high-quality black tea base for me to really enjoy it.

Dislikes: Rooibos, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities. (Although I am not opposed to trying blends that cross into these neighborhoods if they come from reputable companies.)

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
