The story behind Tea Bar is like no other! Founded by Erica, who is from North Portland traveled to China for 2 years on a mission to learn about the culture and of course a little bit of mandarin. Learning a new language wouldn’t hurt right? Realizing that Portland had many coffee shops but very few premium tea bars or shops, Erica was set on a new mission.
