My wife and I stopped in on our last day in Portland and I am happy we did. The selection of teas are outstanding! They have tea from what seems like everywhere! The two employees were very helpful and I enjoyed talking to them. The pastries are fantastic as well. If I was a local this would be my Sunday... More

We stopped here to relax after a kind of a hot walk around the town. We weren't sure of a few things when we walked in, such as if we could seat ourselves or if we had to order at the counter first (it felt awkward to walk past the counter, where a staff member was gorging himself on something)....

This is one of the Tea places that I have ever been to. I am very difficult to please when it comes to tea as I am from Sri Lanka which grows tea and my palette is used to trying different types of tea. The beverages that we got at this place was absolutely amazing and nothing could go wrong.... More

A great place to chill out and relax while sipping on exotic tea. I chose Silver needle - a white tea recommended for morning. An easy drinking, slightly smoky astringent tea that allowed me to relax and recharge. There are also teas to take home with you. Inviting atmosphere and very laid back.

What a delight to happen into this lovely tea room! The menu is extremely extensive, and the atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxing. The staff are attentive, but give plenty of space. It's the kind of place you could sit for hours in, enjoying light fare and teas. I had a matcha bowl and some mochi - both were just... More

A cool, refreshing, relaxing and inviting refuge on a very hot summer afternoon. The tea choices were as much fun to read about as they were to enjoy, and the light snacks, in our case, cookies were delish!

Enjoyed visiting the original US Dobra Tea as I have been to 3 others. Lovely as usual. Great tea selection. Enjoyed hibiscus on a warm day. Kids enjoyed chai.

I love perusing the lengthy tea menu at Dobra. Everything I've ever tried has been delicious. Service, however, can be quite slow. They request that guests ring a little bell to call for service, which feels a little strange but ok. However, I've gone in a few times an not been greeted/given the bell, and so had to wait forever... More

After walking all over downtown Portland we were ready for an afternoon break and luckily fell into this delightful tea house. It's charming and peaceful inside, the menu is like a guidebook of tea and Jeanette our server was friendly and informative. They actually steep the tea from last leaves and give you extra hot water to make your own... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the Dobra Tea House, and enjoyed looking through all of the tea-- dozens and dozens of options. However, that's one of my issues with places like these: with so many tea options, the patron has no idea which teas are the freshest, and sometimes you feel bad if you pick the wrong choice. I...
