After having a rich and decadent breakfast my husband and I opted for a light mid-afternoon snack with some tea at Dobra. Service was slow to start - we rang our bell three times over the course of twenty minutes before my husband had to ask if that's what we were supposed to do (it was). After our initial wait,...

In all our travels, never have I ever come across such an unbelievable choice of teas! Take a comfortable chair in this wonderful & peaceful cafe & someone brings over the enormous book of teas for you to browse through. It's more like a coffee table book than a menu & it took us a wee while to make our... More

I immediately liked Dobra Tea. Seating is intimate, sort of. For sure the area is arranged for small group and couples' conversations and that makes Dobra the perfect place to meet and have a small snack. Service? Ring the bell provided for each party and service is good. So are the teas. I'd be surprised to hear of anyone not... More

Great place ! They give you a large book that explains all of the different teas and their origin. It's a very peaceful atmosphere. Would definitely stop by again.

four of us women friends went there a couple of months or so ago. I didn't know what to expect. It certainly fits Asheville's image as a bit different. We ordered two types of tea, both good. Their tea choices are crazy numerous. Overwhelming actually, at least to me. It's a tea aficionado's heaven. We also order different snack items... More

I love the Tumeric Milk and Chituri at their West Asheville location. A very soothing and relaxing atmosphere. A rare tea house experience in the United States

We love establishments that are really passionate about their offerings. Dobra is just that! Vegan and gluten free pastries, fresh loose leaf teas, nice staff. Check out their private tea rooms.

Dobra is a dim-lit little tea shop in Asheville that really love and know their stuff. Their atmosphere is chill and relaxing, great for catching up with friends while sipping on your favorite glass of tea or great as well if you're feeling adventurous and want to try something you've probably never heard of before. Just do yourself a favor... More

I love Dobra Tea House!! Especially the backrooms where you can have a quiet chat with friends over delicious hand brewed teas. The gluten free raspberry cakes are my favorite with tulsi chai.
