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 Puerh Tea Tasting, Saturday Oct. 18th, 12:30am-3:30pm, 20% off for these teas during the tasting hours.
For the free tasting this week we will sample 3 unique puerh teas. Puerh is a specific type of dark tea from southern China (Yunnan Province) which is processed differently from green, white, oolong, and black teas. Instead of oxidizing or rolling the teas before adding heat to stop that process, Puerh is feremented. To do this, tea producers add heat and moisture to the leaves, causing them to ferment and develop healthy bacteria for digestion and lowering cholesterol. This week we will sample a sweet rice puerh, a new house blended ginger puerh, and puerh aged inside a tangering rind.
Sweet Rice Puerh, Sweet rice puerh is a loose leaf sheng (raw) puerh produced by Hmong people in Pingbian, a small town in southern Yunnan Province. It has a very unique sweet rice flavor that is both earthy and cooling. Its hearty taste and aroma will leave you refreshed and energized.
Organic Ginger Puerh, Organic Ginger Puerh, Ku Cha's newest blend, is a detoxifying tea that embraces both authentic Chinese Puerh tea and Native American herbal medecine. Lapacho is made from the inner bark of the Pau d'arco tree from Central and Southern America and is known for detoxifying, preventing cancer, and reducing infection. Puerh tea has traditionally been used medicinally to lower cholesterol and aid digestion.
Ingredients: Organic ripe puerh, ginger root, lapacho, orange peel
Tangerine Puerh Ball, Tangerine Puerh is composed of fermented tea leaves aged inside a tangerine rind, which imparts a light citrusy sweetness to the brewed tea. It is produced in Xin Hui, Guangdong Province and it is known for the health benefits of Sheng Jin (making your mouth feel quenched), Run Fei Zhi Ke (supressing coughs and nurturing lung performance), and Qu Re (reducing internal heat). Add a few pieces of the rind to your teapot to really get that tangerine flavor.
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:
