New Denver tea house opens in Cherry Creek

Nearly 200 oolong, green, white, black and pu-erh teas are being stocked this week at a new tea house in Cherry Creek.

Owners Rong Pan and Qin Liu, who met in Beijing but relocated together to Boulder to complete their MBAs, on Saturday will hold a grand opening of their third Ku Cha House of Tea.

The couple started the business in 2005 as an extension of Pan’s graduate thesis. Now, they have Chinese tea shops on Boulder’s Pearl Street, College Avenue in Fort Collins and, the latest, Third Avenue in Cherry Creek.

“I want to have (enough) tea so anybody at least can find a tea they like,” Pan said.
