Located in Boulder, Colorado, Ku Cha House of Tea, formerly known as The Leaf, was established in 2005 to bring you the finest teas around the world.
The history of tea dates back to 5000 years ago. The Chinese people first cultivated tea and drank it mostly for medicinal purposes. Since then, tea has been adopted by cultures worldwide. Right now, over 50 countries in the world produce teas. Because of its nutritional value, tea has become increasingly popular in the United States.
Drinking tea is fun. Green tea provides a light, fresh taste; black tea, a full bodied flavor; and oolong tea, a blend of both green and black tea flavors. No matter what taste you prefer, you can always find a type of tea that suits you. Tea drinks are colorful: green, yellow, black, and red. You name it! When you drink tea, you can enjoy its delightful flavor and appreciate its color.
Choose a type of tea that suits your mood or the weather. What drink can be better than a cup of iced tea on a hot summer afternoon? A warm green tea on a brisk spring morning? A flavored herbal tea on a fall night? Or a hot black tea on a cold winter morning? Explore your interest in tea right here!

As winter finally sets in and snow blankets Pearl Street, there is no better time to cozy up with a hot cup of tea. At this week's free tasting, we will sample some of China's finest black teas. These teas will help keep you warm and comfortable during the holiday season.
Yunnan Gold, One of our favorite black teas, Yunnan Gold is rich and full-bodied. It is naturally sweet and a little floral. Made from only the tender tips of the tea leaves, it is perhaps one of China's oldest black teas. Definitely not one to miss. With its lingering honey aftertaste, this is a great tea to drink by itself (no sugar or milk). Good for multiple infusions
Golden Monkey, Golden Monkey is a smooth and sweet black tea from Fujian Province in China. The leaves are long and curled and of a black and gold color. The tea brews a deep golden-amber color and tastes smooth and malty with a slight earthiness upfront that slowly dissolves into a lingering and sweet aftertaste.
Keemun Ho Ya, The top grade Keemun tea from An Hui Province in eastern China. Ho Ya, or Monkey Picked, is used to describe the very young and slim tea sprouts. The leaves are twisted, rolled and very fine. This tea is smooth and bright with a sweet, rich, and earthy finish. This is a great tea to start the morning.
All these three teas will be offered at 20% discount during the tea tasting time.
