PORTLAND'S BEST TEAHOUSES
"Everything is thoughtful here, from the beautiful teacups to the oolong tea service. Knowledgable waitstaff can guide patrons through the lengthy menu of teas, like Taiwanese 'Blue People' or the 2017 Harvest Dan Cong 'Duck Shit'..."

It’s possible to order one large entrée, but you’re best served filling up on several thoughtful small plates—think bean curd skin, spicy tuna onigiri, sesame broccoli, and kimchi mung bean cakes.
