From Farm to Tea Cup
Dobrá Tea is a restaurant in downtown Ashland, Oregon that offers freshly brewed loose-leaf teas, food, and pastries. Traveling to tea growing countries every year, we source teas directly from tea farmers around the world including those in China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

We support local businesses, farmers, herbalists, and artists right here at home and in our region. Some of the local companies with whom we do business include Kashaya, Lille Belle Farms, Eco Teas, Ashland Food Co-op, Mountain Rose Herbs, Glory Bee, and Holy Kakow.
The Way of Tea
For some, tea offers a way to find peace and serenity while preparing and drinking tea. We serve and brew each tea according to the tradition of its country of origin. In a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, the tearoom provides a meaningful space that honors both tea and the individual. We find that drinking tea daily can improve one’s mind and body.
All of our teas fall into one of the following categories: certified organic, wild arbor, permaculturally grown, naturally grown without pesticides, or meets EU standards for testing to ensure the teas do not contain pesticides, chemicals, or heavy metals. We take great pride in sourcing our teas directly from farmers who do not use pesticides and chemicals. Each year, we remove teas from our menu that do not meet our strict standards. The majority of our teas are available in bulk at the teahouse. To purchase any of our quality loose-leaf teas online, click here.
The story of Dobrá Tea (Good Tea) began in Prague during the last few years of communism. A group of young tea lovers began meeting to drink teas smuggled into Czechoslovakia. The elite had easier access to high quality teas at that time. In 1989, communism fell. Dobrá Tea opened its first Bohemian-style tearoom in Prague in 1993. The tearoom became a place where like-minded individuals could gather and taste the world of tea. With much success, the company began to spread its tea concept throughout eastern Europe. In 2003, Dobrá Tea opened its first United States tearoom in Burlington, Vermont. The tearoom in Ashland, Oregon is the eighth one in the U.S. All tearooms are locally owned and independently operated. We welcome you to Ashland’s growing tea community!
