Original Tao

Portland's Oldest Teahouse (Est. 1997)

The Original Tao of Tea teahouse was built in 1997 in Portland, Oregon. It was our first step with tea and took eight months of craftsmanship to build the interior with black bamboo, old reclaimed wood, copper and stone. Veerinder's oldest brother Harpreet and Bob, a friend, were instrumental in the making of the teahouse. The design was formulated without the use of any formal drawings. It was built as if a picture were being painted. Our philosophy was to work with a handful of materials and find a spot that best suited them. The teahouse includes a rock waterfall, wooden tea chest tables and bamboo shelves. The teahouse was awarded 'best interior' among 600 restaurants in the Pacific Northwest in 2000 by nationally known Zagat restaurant guide.? It is consistently rated as the 'Best Teahouse' in Portland and offers one of the largest variety of teas in the country.

Open 11 am to 10 pm daily. 503-736-0119. 3430 SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97214
