July 28 & 29
At the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse
The Tea Festival is hosted at The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse. Nestled at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, the Teahouse was a gift to the city of Boulder from sister city, Dushanbe, Tajikistan. The elaborate, handcrafted teahouse is the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere, and is one of the city of Boulder’s premier tourist attractions.
The Rocky Mountain Tea Festival was started 15 years ago as a way to offer our customers an opportunity to learn more about premium, loose leaf tea. We invited a number of speakers and industry leaders to come teach seminars, workshops, and host tea tastings. The response was gratifyingly strong, and the Tea Festival became an annual tradition. As the Tea Festival grew, we were able to expand to include more seminars, a Tea Dinner, a small marketplace, and the popular Children’s Tea Parties.
The goal of the Tea Festival is to offer a non competitive forum for lovers of tea to come and learn, taste, and discuss their favorite beverage. This interactive event allows people to connect one – on – one with leaders in the tea industry, taste phenomenal teas, and enjoy a weekend of celebrating one of nature’s most prized gifts.
