Walk into Dobra Tea and you are no longer in Burlington, Vermont. You are no longer a tourist or a local or a business person or a student. This cultured tea house is one of those rare places that stops time for a bit, encouraging you to let go of the hustle and bustle of who you are and where you are. And it asks only one thing in return: to please pull up a cushion, listen to the soothing music, relax, and sip some tea. Whether you're well-versed in the ways of Chai and Oolong or are more of a java-lover with only a beginners knowledge of coffee's herbal cousin, it does not matter. Dobra Tea does not judge. Rather, it invites you to explore. Page through the hand-bound books that serve as tea menus and select something new or find comfort in a classic. A soft-voiced tea connoisseur will come to your side at the ring of a bell and take your order or offer up words of tea-wisdom. Don't expect your stay at Dobra to be quick. After all, you must allow the proper time to sit and steep in order to enjoy this exotic tea houses' full flavor.
