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!



Hello! I love literature, politics, and tea. I work in the Information Technology field and am currently working toward an MA in English.

Favorites: Black, oolong, and rooibos. Blends that are vanilla, chocolate, nutty, or dessert-like are especially appealing to me. I also love ginger, citrus, and lemongrass.

I like green teas as long as they are blended with fruit and/ or spices, and I LOVE them when they’re floral.

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 and be heavy on the cinnamon and light on the nutmeg. Also iffy about mate and herbal teas in general, although chamomile and I are usually on speaking terms.

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint. (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.
