Rong Pan opened the first Ku Cha House of Tea with her husband Qin Liu in Boulder in 2005.

Denverites interested in high-quality teas from around the world finally can explore the largest selection in Colorado at Ku Cha House of Tea’s latest store, in Cherry Creek North at 2445 E. Third Avenue.

With more than 170 teas, including rare teas from across Asia, Ku Cha House of Tea gives Coloradans easy access to a wide range of the world’s fine teas, all from within its charming shop and tea room. The shop also carries an expansive selection of handmade tea pots and tea accessories, and offers customers seating for savoring hot teas and custom tea-infused snacks.

“Our shops in Boulder and Fort Collins have become extremely popular, and now we are thrilled to bring the Ku Cha experience to Denver,” said Rong Pan, who opened the first Ku Cha House of Tea with her husband Qin Liu in Boulder in 2005. The couple met in college in Beijing, and moved to Colorado to pursue MBAs from the University of Colorado before starting Ku Cha. 

“We work with tea growers around the world, and hand-select all that we import,” said Qin. “We are truly passionate about tea, and eager to introduce to Denver the fascinating, diverse and delicious world of tea.” 

As keen tea enthusiasts, Rong and Qin take important steps to preserve Ku Cha’s teas’ freshness and quality, something usually missing from stores not focused on tea. For the green teas, for example, they only accept teas harvested in spring, when the leaves are most dynamic with flavor; mass-market teas normally are harvested during sweltering summer months, when the flavors become diluted and flabby.

In addition to the broad selection of classic teas from Asia, Ku Cha also carries high-quality flavored, herbal blends, yerba mate, chai and rooibos teas.
