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!

Free Tea Tasting Schedule
Free Green Tea Tasting, Saturday March 8th, 11:30am-2:30pm, 20% off for these teas during the tasting hours.
This week we will sample 3 different Puerh Teas, one raw (sheng), one ripe (shou), and one wild puerh from 2005. Each tea has a unique flavor profile and will offer a different drinking experience.
Xia Guan, This sheng puerh cake is made by Xia Guan, one of the best puerh factories in Yunnan. The large leaves are from Wu Liang mountain and this cake was compressed in November, 2008. As a younger cake, the flavor is powerful. Slightly astringent with a sweet after taste. This cake has a subtly smokey flavor, which dissipates after the first few steepings.
Da Yi, This shou (ripe) puerh is a classic recipe from Menghai Factory. This Da Yi does not have a strong pungency of a just-fermented cake, but has already mellowed a bit. When brewed this cake is sweet and rich. This is the perfect choice for those who already love the rich, earthy taste of shou puerh, but it is also a great one for beginners.
2005 Wild Tree, This puerh was made by the Long Yuan Hao Tea Factory of Dadugang. Picked from wild trees on Yi Wu mountain, one of the Six Ancient Tea Mountains in Yunnan, this tea was harvested and compressed in 2002. The infusion is very smooth, with a unique and lively jujube flavor from the natural aging process.
