Steven Smith Teamaker's New Tasting Room

 About a month ago Steven Smith's Teamaker opened a new tasting room
and packaging facility in a transitioning industrial area of Portland, Oregon.
With the holidays and having bronchitis I hadn't gotten in to visit.
 This week I ventured out and was delighted by what I saw.
 Of course there were delightful scents and teas.
The fire was going and enticed me to sit awhile.
What fun to peek through the window just past the tasting bar
and see them packaging tea.
There is a spaciousness here yet it feels so cozy.
A good place to linger on a stormy winter day over a cup of tea.
It is located on SW Washington near the railroad tracks and river,
very easy to find.  Plus parking right in front of the shop.
I love it!

That does look like a fun place to visit. And to have a cup of tea before the fire would be wonderful!

What a wonderful spot for a cup of tea! I'm planning a summer trip so I'll have to add this new tasting room to my "to visit" list.

Just lovely....
Thanks for letting us have a peek, Marilyn. I've always enjoyed their teas and it would be so special to enjoy a cup in their beautiful setting.

WOW... simply WOW! Love the ideas behind this place, and yes, VERY interesting & exciting locale! Oh--fireside there with a tea sample.... mmm... So glad you took us along, Marilyn! This is like armchair travel to me here, knee-deep in snow. ;) ((HUGS))
