Stash Tea opens first tea bar, Portland retail store on North Mississippi Avenue

Stash Tea opens first tea bar, Portland retail store on North Mississippi Avenue
Stash Tea opened in the early 1970s as a line of concoctions. With the aid of a guidebook and a developing knowledge of Northwest forest botanicals, Steve Smith mixed herbs, roots and berries.

These days, most people know the company as the purveyor of something else: Tea bags stashed in square packets, lined up with other brands in the aisles of grocery stores.

Forty years in, Stash is working to restore the focus on loose-leaf and other specialty teas. And last weekend it opened its first retail space in Portland a North Mississippi Avenue store and tea bar that offers 250 loose-leaf teas and 65 by-the-ounce flavors.

The offerings range from dessert teas such as Black Forest Cake and Tiramisu to green teas such as Organic Blue Nettle and Tea of 1000 Charms. The by-the-ounce teas include a few rare ones, such as the Chinese green tea Sparrow Tongue, which retails for $9 an ounce. The tea bar features holiday specials, lattes, ciders and hot chocolates made with lapsang tea.

I live in Eugene and AFAIK there isn't anything like this down here. Is there? About the closest thing I can think of is the loose tea selection at The Kiva, but last time I checked it looked like they might have swapped it out for bulk goods.

1. Thank you for the heads up, Poll_Blind.

I will have to find time to check this out.

And, I hope you find something in Eugene, which is comparable.

It seems ironic that PDX would have something like this, while Eugene doesn't?
