Hello from Hong Kong! Luckily this airport has free internet so I am able to begin to wrap up the road trip saga, even as I am en route to Thailand.
One night after dinner in Asheville, North Carolina, we experienced Dobrá Tea, based on the recommendation of a woman we met in a boutique earlier that day.
We sat on cushions at a low table, listening to two men playing a didgeridoo and a drum. They have a selection of teas out for you to eye, sniff, and admire, but we made our choice based on which teas did not have caffeine, since it was late.
We ended up with a pot of licorice tea, which was naturally very sweet.
As in many of the eateries in Asheville, all of Dobrá Tea’s food is local. Zan and I split a piece of match green tea cheesecake, which was made at a local bakery and was the absolute perfect choice for dessert. Not only did it complement our earlier dinner of Asian noodle soup, but it was the perfect combination of flaky crust and sweet, cheesy smoothness, infused with the unmistakable flavor of green tea… and it had chocolate on top.
