Afternoon Tea and More

Tea is a widely consumed beverage around the world, steeped in diverse and cultural significance, traditions, rituals and etiquette. Tualatin Valley has several teahouses offering a special and unique take on the traditional tea service.

Located in a house-like exterior in Hillsboro, Skywater Tea House offers “Afternoon Tea,” a British tea-related ritual that features light bites, such as finger sandwiches, scones, sweet pastries and cakes. The tea menu features dozens of teas, including herbal tisanes and non-caffeinated teas and English and Asian teas. A tea service typically lasts 90 minutes. (Reservations are required.)

The Clockwork Rose Tea Emporium is a steampunk-inspired tea room, which is both elegant and eclectic. Afternoon tea experiences are available and include soup or salad, tea sandwiches, savory pies, scones and mini desserts. Clockwork Rose can also accommodate many special dietary requests. Tea experiences last for at least two hours. (Reservations are required.)

DOJA Tea Lounge, situated on Tualatin Lake at the Commons in the city of Tualatin, is a modern tea house that offers an afternoon tea experience unlike traditional tea services. The menu, which changes seasonally, includes quiche, hand pies, tartlets, sandwiches, scones and more. Seatings are for up to two hours. (Reservations are required.)

Mamancy Tea Co. is owned and operated by Anne Johnson, who grew up drinking tea in Kenya as a family ritual ceremony. As a certified tea sommelier (and certified chocolatier), her shop offers a variety of experiences at her shop in Hillsboro. A Kenyan Afternoon Tea offers an African Tea-inspired menu, with savory treats such as Sukuma wiki fritters and chocolate cake made with fine African cocoa. Or indulge in a tea and chocolate pairing. (Reservations are required.)

Finally, if you’re looking for a not-so-leisurely experience, and just want a cup (or pot) of coffee, try Old Asia Tea House in downtown Beaverton. This teahouse offers more than 25 types of teas and tea drinks from around Asia. Tea lovers can also build their own “craft” tea with several add-in options such as lavender flowers, dandelion leaves, licorice root and more. Try the Burmese Tea, a favorite, made with Assam black tea and sweetened milk.
