Portland has tons of great cafes, but if you are a tea purist (or if you feel like having something other than your daily espresso), check out The Tao of Tea, a teahouse where you can find almost all the teas in the world and then some.

The teahouse is simply amazing, built out of black bamboo, old reclaimed wood, copper and stone, and it symbolizes balance just as much as the tea being served. Tea is served in a variety of style, using beautiful teaware, and the 'ceremonial' sets are a delight.

In addition to tea, they also serve a variety of international snacks, full entrees and delicious desserts.

Address:
3430 SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97214, USA

Opening Hours:
11 am to 11 pm everyday
