CHILLED WULONG

The roasted, tannic taste of this unsweetened, dark Fujian Oolong is surprisingly and pleasantly thirst-quenching on hot summer days.

STAROBORSHOV

Our most famous: dark oolong tea shaken with organic simple syrup produces a frothy “head” like a draft beer, but it’s tea only here! Named after the Czech Republic’s famous Staropramen Brewery and Borsov street where Dobra’s second tearoom was located and where this drink was created.  It has a roasted, slightly tannic flavor and is a great thirst quencher. An excellent iced “cocktail”.

KYOTO KINEN

A recipe inspired by this lovely city of tea. Japanese matcha tea is quickly infused, then shaken with milk, honey, and ice to produce a frothy green tea milkshake. The recipe is from our friend and tea supplier, master Takada, from Kyoto. Kinen means “memory”, so this tea’s name translates as “memories of Kyoto.”

THE FOREST DRAGON

The Forest Dragon provides gentle luck and fierce flavor!  Powdered Japanese matcha and Chinese jasmine green teas are flash infused and then mixed with organic rice milk, fresh mint, a generous shake of cardamom, and a stream of sweet, local honey.  Please allow us a few extra moments to prepare.
