Dobrá Tea was founded by a group of tea drinkers who had smuggled rare Indian, Chinese and Japanese teas into Prague towards the end of Communism. At the time, the tea they were secretly brewing was only consumed by the highest ranks in the government and military. Three years after the fall of Communism, the group opened their first tearoom in the capital, and in the past decade, nineteen more opened across the Czech Republic. The Dobrá Tea in Burlington was the first US Dobrá.
My boyfriend and I sat on the cushions nestled in the corner. Their cushions are filled with buckwheat hull.After browsing their ten pages of my green tea (yes, you heard me right; they have TEN pages in their menu devoted to this one type!!), we ordered Dian Lu Eshan, which is touted as their best green tea.
I find the winter to be the best time of the year to reflect due to its' slow pace. After my boyfriend poured each serving, I stared at my tea leaves and mused about what 2016 would hold for us.
