We are overjoyed to share the Way of Tea through Mountain Gate Teahouse and Art Gallery at the base of the cloud-hidden mountains of Telluride, Colorado.  At Mountain Gate, we offer traditional tea service, as well as tea ceremonies, classes and workshops. We explore every facet of the Leaf from the linear, biological, and practical aspects to the artistic, meditative and ceremonial. We also offer a simple, delicious menu of traditional teahouse fare, including confections made with our tea. Join us and spend some time appreciating fine art and the perfect cup.

Sensational tea. Cozy atmosphere. Stunning art. Friendly staff. An extensive menu including scrumptious savory and sweet bites. A must try!  11/10 recommend.

Wow what an incredible experience having tea here. They have a very special tea selection and are super knowledgeable. We had a pot of tea that lasted us for an hour because you can continue to rebrew and add fresh water. Epic relaxing teatime :)

Scott Hildebrand

Unique, high- quality teas, served in a traditional fashion. Do not let posted prices discourage you, because each tea order serves at least 4 (or many more) people. The whole experience is so aesthetic and authentic to tea traditions. The atmosphere is so calm an inspiring!

Lesa Hildebrand

Wow, this is a true tea house - traditional ceremonial- grade teas in a fresh modern space. And the art really pulls it all together!

The owners clearly know the art of tea- from the unique old growth teas to the way the tea is served, this is not your average cage. We literally stayed for hours in one of their cozy nooks enjoying several pots of different teas and snacking on amazing gluten free brownies.
