Burlington tea geeks too harried to stop for a pot will soon be able to get their Dobrá Tea fix to go. The teahouse’s take-out window on Bank Street will also dish out a new, eclectic menu of snacks.
Spinach boreks, falafel and dumplings will be part of the savory fare at Dobrá, and the window will be located in a new dining space where deli Mad Hatter used to be. “We’ll have street food from all over tea-drinking land,” says Dobrá owner Stacy Jolles. “We’re sort of imagining an indoor street cart.”
The menu will include a few new sweets, too, made by Dobrá’s food partners, including Anatolian and On the Rise Bakery. Another addition: a display of teaware made by local artists such as Chris Vaughn and Laura Baum.
Jolles says the take-out window will probably start serving an hour or two before Dobrá’s 10 a.m. opening, to cater to early-morning passersby. In summer, the staff plans to offer chai- and green-tea-flavored ice cream.
The new space and expanded menu debut on April 5.
