3 Teahouses to Keep You Warm in the Denver Boulder Area

BY Gabriela Reyes


Spices, herbs, flowers, and leaves have been used for thousands of years to infuse healthy, soothing teas. Popularly divided into four main types: black, green, white, and herbal, the ancient cocktail contains antioxidants that help protect the body from damage caused by harmful toxins and is known to lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

While warm beverages can be calming, some teas can assist in attaining the opposite effect with their caffeine content that boosts energy levels, and improves mental focus. With the return of cool weather projected to continue for another week, National Tea Day has blessed us with the opportunity to suggest teahouses for you to luxuriate in the aromas and beneficial brews. So don’t put your coats away just yet; enjoy this sweater weather with a cuppa during their afternoon tea or anytime they are steeping loose leaves in their teapots.
