New Stash Tea store in Portland
Along a pretty tree-lined street in Portland OR, Stash Tea has opened a tea bar and retail store. This is the second retail store for the company and the first tea bar. The neighborhood, Mississippi Avenue, is known for its independent and artsy shops and I very much enjoy visiting. The Stash Tea Bar is a nice addition.
You probably know of Stash from is colorful teabags. Until recently, I didn't realize that the company also sells loose-leaf teas. When you walk into the store, you're greeted on the right by canister after canister of the loose leaf, and on the left by floor-to-ceiling shelves with teas ready for purchase. You can also find a nice selection of tea pots and other implements. I was particularly fond of little ceramic storage jars, and the price was very reasonable. If you prefer bagged teas, you can find those, too.
While you're at it, sample one of the teas on display and contemplate a tea latte or other beverage at the tea bar. The friendly staff will be happy to tell you about Stash's history and the architecture of the retail space.
The open and bright space is pleasant. Grab a seat by the window to enjoy your tea beverage as you watch the hip shoppers pass by on the street.
