Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse

1770 13th St./Menu


I can honestly say that I have never been to any place like the Teahouse before, or at least not in the United States. The space leaks character and history from every decoration in the walls, the hand-carved and hand-painted ceilings and intricate columns, all based off one mayor from Tajikistan’s desire to create the space to celebrate the ties of sister cities. If the intricate decorations and high ceilings in the indoor dining room weren’t enough, the serene outdoor patio/garden disguises its downtown Boulder location into a suburban retreat.

As implied by the name, their selection of teas is truly intimidating, likely cataloging more than 1oo different teas. So in an effort to quit swimming and find land, I begged for the help of my knowledgeable server. Knowing that I liked something fruity and flavorful, he suggested a strawberry-lemon tea, which sounded more like a juice than a natural tea. Upon pouring my tea from my personal teapot, I was astounded by the beautiful color. To make the experience even more fun, the set-up came with a mini sand timer which indicated when my tea was ready to be poured.

Now onto the good stuff. Though honestly every single item on the diverse menu spoke to me, I went with the Farmer’s Eggs- scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, potatoes, tomatoes and topped with cheddar cheese, served with fruit and a biscuit. The dish was truly flawless- fresh ingredients, the perfect combo of egg/veggie/cheese and the biscuit, something not typically on breakfast menus around health-conscious Boulder, was rich and crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. Dream-like.

The Teahouse’s breakfast is so unlike their otherwise Asian influenced lunch and dinner menus, that I am already planning my next visit to sample what else they have to offer. If it is all like breakfast, I am expecting delicious, innovative, and passionately-prepared concoctions.
