I've bought loose-leaf tea at Dobra in the past and enjoyed my purchases. A little while ago I went to Dobra with two friends and we we chose to wait 5-10 minutes to be seated at one of the platforms instead of a table. Just as we settled in an employee came over and told us that we had to... More

What a pretentious, rude bunch of ^%&^%&^%*&. Oh did I forget to mention they are snooty, unhelpful, stoopid -yes that's with twoooh's- and unpleasant? The older bag (not tea bag) who seems to own/run the joint, was especially rude, of course it was hard to tell from her stone cold face. They refused to answer my questions about their teas... More

I went in here looking for some hard to find Green Teas and was met with a dozen plus varieties of some of the most treasured greens you can find. Felt like an old apothecary shop, and if you're interested in trying before buying there a super chill loungy area where you can hang out with a friend of 5... More

Perfect place to refresh and refuel after shopping Church Street. They sell all of the teas they serve, and are eager to educate you about the flavors and sourcing of the many many choices. The ambiance is perfect, and the food is a wonderful complement to a pot of tea.

If you love tea and healthy snacks in a cozy, hippy kind of atmosphere, this is your spot! Very informed help at the tea counter, with lots of choices. Cozy little areas for sitting with your cup of tea and a treat. Highly recommended shopping break!

I bring all my tea-drinking visitors here. The tea menu is about an inch thick! The atmosphere is wonderful and peaceful. The tea is excellent and the service is very professional - they really know tea!

walking in to Dobra tea, you let your eyes wander around, and walk around, to see the greatest variety of places to sit that I have ever seen in one restaurant. And you find your whole body just starts to RELAX. You can sit way in the back with just candle light, snuggle down on a chair, or on pillows.... More
