Go West XXIX - East Meets West

Tajik artists hand-painted and hand-carved Persian themed motifs on various parts of a tea house, then shipped the pieces in 200 crates from Dushanbe, Tajikistan to Boulder, Colorado for assembly. The result, after years of construction, was the Dushanbe Tea House.

 Lavish designs decorate this popular restaurant and provide an authentic Eastern atmosphere to dine or drink from its menu of over 100 types of teas. The concept of the tea house is to serve as a gathering place for friends and family to socialize over cups of tea... which is what we did with our good friends in Boulder.
