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 White Tea Tasting, Saturday Oct. 25th, 12:30am-3:30pm, 20% off for these teas during the tasting hours.
Come to Ku Cha House of Tea this Saturday to sample some of our traditional white teas. White tea is the least processed variety of camelia sinensis; the leaves are picked and sun dried, allowing the oxidize ever so slightly. Often white tea is made from just the buds of the tea plant and has naturally occuring theanine, a natural stress reliever found in some plants. This week we will sample our silver needle, our organic peony white, and our aged shou mei. Come by to taste and see how these teas are all unique.
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!
Shou Mei, Shou Mei means "Old Man's Eyebrow" in Chinese and is a unique white tea produced in Fujian Province. This tea is famous for its medicinal benefits, such as improving the immune system, skin complexion, and mild detoxification. Compressed in cake form, Shou Mei is a good candidate for aging: the taste of the tea will become sweeter and the medicinal benefits will be more intense over time.
Starting in September, Ku Cha will offer some new tea classes focused on some of the new types of tea we have recently imported from China! If you have ever been curious about the oolongs you are drinking or what makes puerh tea unique, these classes will be a great opportunity to go more in depth and sample some really special stuff. The classes will be held every Saturday morning from 10am-11am. They will be $20 per person (non-refundable) and they will be limited to a maximum of 6 people. Here is the schedule:
