Steven Smith Teamaker Announces Tasting Room Opening Date
Nov. 13, 2015
Eater Portland reports that Steven Smith Teamaker will open its new tea tasting room at Harsch's The Works at Produce Row on December 2nd. Located in Portland's Central Eastside Industrial District, the building will also house Steven Smith Teamaker's production facility, more than doubling current production.

Visitors will be able to sample customizable flights of the gourmet teas straight off the production line. The custom-built tasting room will feature 20 seats and a large window to watch the teamaking in action.

Founder Steven Smith also founded Tazo and Stash teas, and he passed away as one of the world's most respected teamakers in spring 2015. "It's a badge of honor to carry out Steven Smith's tradition," says Steven Smith Teamaker Director of Marketing Amy Yukas. "Many of us here worked alongside him at Tazo and Stash for years. He always had an affinity for Southeast, and really, he loved the Southeast industrial neighborhood before there was anything going on."
