The Dushanbe Teahouse is a must for both tea and art aficionados. It is located next to the Boulder Creek, and is one of Boulder's most popular tourist attractions. It is the only authentic Persian teahouse located in the Western Hemisphere. The Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, Boulder's sister city. Forty artisans worked on it over a period of 2 years. It was then disassembled and sent to Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration. The ceiling of the Teahouse was carved and painted with intricate patterns, as were the 12 cedar columns that are throughout the building. They offer a wide variety of teas, and hold an annual tea festival each August. The cuisine is creative, and changes with the local, organic ingredients that are available each season.
