|Pouring tea at Dushanbe|
The tea room itself is a gift from Boulder's sister city in Tajikistan and the decor reflects the unique craftsmanship of many of the country's artists. The brightly colored carved ceiling, white plaster wall panels and bronze sculptors are visually stunning and, alone, would be worth the trip.

Our afternoon tea came with a variety of scrumptious sandwiches and desserts, along with scones served with cream and lemon curd. Dushanbe also has a line of their own tea which was served in individual tea pots to accompany the repast. We sampled four different teas and our favorites were Earl Grey and Boulder Tangerine.
