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! 28, female, American. A total hopeless bookworm— I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in English. I also love dogs, all things that are colored purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

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

Favorite tea types: Black, pu’erh, oolong, kombucha, genmaicha, matcha, rooibos, honeybush (recent change of heart there), and floral greens.

Favorite flavor notes: Roasted, fermented, earthy, floral, nutty, bread-y, umami; dessert-inspired flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and maple.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends as well as fruit-flavored teas; they really need to be done right, IMHO. I’m iffy about mate, as well as herbal teas, although there are a few tisanes that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Flat-out dislike: White tea, most unflavored green teas, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

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

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
