Yesterday I had tea with Stephanie of Steph's Cup of Tea.
We met at the Tea Zone in Portland for a special time of getting acquainted and sharing our love of tea. What fun it is to meet fellow tea bloggers and make new connections across the country. Thanks Stephanie for sharing tea with me, I loved it. It was great to get to know you better. Travel well!
The Tea Zone is not a Victorian tea room, but a very pleasant place to sit and visit. In the back they have a tea lounge where they served mixed drinks with tea. I always order the same thing when I go there. It doesn't matter what time of the day it is, but I love their Chicken Curry Empanada's. The tea I order may be different, but it is always the same food. Yesterday was a bubble tea day for me, I had green tea with mango. It was yummy and very refreshing. It had been a long time since I had a bubble tea, they are fun to drink and the tapioca bubbles are fun to chew (like chewy gummy bears). The Tea Zone was busy with people coming and going; some staying for awhile. This type of tea room is very attractive to young adults, both men and women. When I worked nearby, I often stopped in for some tea for a break or for lunch. If you are ever in Portland, Oregon I am sure you would enjoy stopping in for a tea break as you shop in the Pearl district. Then if you are really in the mood for more tea it is not far to the Chinese Gardens where they have a Chinese style tearoom after a peaceful walk through the gardens.
