Best Place to Soak It In - 2003
Rocky Mountain Tea Festival
The Dushanbe Teahouse rarely needs to coerce anyone to sip or dine there. With its folkloric Tajik craftsmanship, the teahouse is a magnificent place to sit, especially when it's open to the summer breezes like an airy, sun-filled tent. And once it year, it's even more enticing with its wonderfully celebratory Rocky Mountain Tea Festival. There's something here for tea lovers of every stripe: seminars and tastings for serious drinkers, a tea dinner for the serendipitous -- even an inexpensive tea party for the under-twelve set. It's a summertime tradition we hope to see continue for years to come -- with or without two lumps.
