From their website:
The story of Dobrá Tea begins in Prague during the last few years of Communism, where as a group of young tea lovers we began meeting to sample rare Indian, Chinese and Japanese teas smuggled into Czechoslovakia. Because of a shortage of foreign currency, high quality teas were then available exclusively to the Party, State and Military elite.
Then came the "Velvet Revolution" and the Fall of Communism in 1989. In 1992, "The Society of Tea Devotees," was formed and the following year our first Bohemian-style tearoom, Dobrá Čajovna, opened in Prague. The Čajovna (tearoom) became a shelter, a place for safety, where like minded individuals could gather and taste the world of tea. Much success blossomed with Dobrá's idea and the company began to spread its tea concept to many small towns throughout Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. In 2003 Dobrá Tea opened its first U.S. tearoom in Burlington, VT and years followed to Madison, WI in 2008. We now welcome you to the Asheville tearoom, which opened in November 2010.
