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!

Upcoming tea classes
Feb 28th, 2015, Saturday 10 am to 11 am: Puerh Tea Tasting Class
Cost: $20, Prepayment required
Max capacity: 6 people per class
During this class, we will explore the world of Puerh tea. With over 1,000 years of history, Puerh comes exclusively from Yunnan Province in southern China. Made from fermented tea leaves, it is unique in that it improves with age. There are two main types of Puerh: Sheng, which typically yields an astringent, hay-like flavor with a lingering sweetness; and Shou, which has more of a mossy earthiness, and can be bold and rich. Puerh is best served gong fu style and is great for digestion, lowering cholesterol, and keeping slim.
Please call us at 303-443-3612 to reserve a spot!

Free Tea Tasting Schedule
Free White Tea Tasting, Saturday Feburary 28th, 12:30am-3:30pm, 20% off for these teas during the tasting hours for both in store and online customers.
For the free tasting this week we will try some unique Indian and Sri Lankan black teas. Each one comes from a different growing region, and each tea offers a unique experience, from the dry leaves all the way to the delicious brew. We will sample a 1st flush darjeeling which will be light and grassy with the special flavor darjeeling is known for. We will sample a superior grade Assam tea which will be rich, malty, and smooth, with a sweet aftertaste. Finally, we will taste a superior grade Ceylon tea which is dark and earthy with a slight bite like dark chocolate.
Organic Peony White, Peony White, also known as Bai Mu Dan, is a delicate white tea from Fujian province in southern China. This tea is made of very young tea buds and the young leaves that emerge close to the sprout in early spring. As with all white teas, there is minimal processing. After harvest, the leaves and buds are withered and dried in the sun, giving it a short time to oxidize. This natural process gives the tea a warm, rich sweetness. This tea proves that white tea is not synonymous with pale flavor! The aroma is floral with a hint of fruit blossoms
Silver Needle, Silver Needle (also known as Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is made of only tea buds picked in early spring. After being meticulously hand picked from the stem, the buds are fanned and dried in the sun before being lightly fired over charcoal at a very low heat, which serves to finish drying the tea while preserving its beautiful silver color. The sweetest of white teas, Silver Needle will coat your mouth with a clean, smooth sweetness. Since production is limited, this is a rare treat that is not to be missed!
Bai Mu Dan (White Tea Cake), A Ku Cha exclusive pressing of high mountain autumn-harvest white tea. Nurtured by autumn mountain dews, this tea has a clean mouth-feel and a long-lasting sweet after-taste. It also has unique health benefits such as reducing fever, promoting skin health, and curing stomach discomfort.
