Tasting Room Menu
We offer an extensive variety of signature Smith blends, seasonal items, featured beverages and teas on draft in both of our Portland locations. Grab a tea latte to-go, or stay and enjoy a tea flight in one of our cozy Tasting Rooms. Find our full menu, and continue reading below to learn more about our unique offerings.
Tasting Room Menu (note: seasonal and limited edition items might not be accurate). There are no reservations necessary in our Tasting Rooms, we offer first come, first served seating.
This summer we offer two brand new teas on tap, only found at our Southeast Portland location:
Nitro Thai Iced Tea is the Smith take on a classic tea experience. We use a blend of fresh black teas from India steeped with lemongrass, pandan leaf and a hint of red beets for color. Lightly sweetened and served with a splash of coconut cream.
Wild Texas Yaupon is a single varietal concoction made from the only caffeinated botanical native to North America. Texas-grown Yaupon was formerly considered an invasive plant peppering local backyards, but is now cherished for its light, crisp and roasted flavor. Carbonated, unsweetened and highly gulpable.
Similar to flights offered at wineries and distilleries, here, you select four hot teas from our menu, and we arrange them on a tray from lightest to darkest, complete with silver tasting spoons and informational tasting cards. Never tried a Darjeeling? Curious about Keemun? Flights are an excellent way to try something new, or a Smith version of one of the classics like a hearty, black breakfast tea or an Earl Grey (we call ours Lord Bergamot). Tourists from around the globe visit the Tasting Rooms to share flights with family and friends.
There's no right or wrong way to enjoy a flight. Some people select teas in a single category -- all blacks, for instance, or all greens -- so they can taste the variety of flavors within one type. Other people pick whichever tea catches their interest, so some honeybush here, some White Petal there. Others work their way through the oxidation spectrum, choosing a white, a green, an oolong and a black. It's Portland. Do your thing. If you need suggestions or would like us to arrange your flight, we're happy to help.
Tea to Drink
Need your morning brew or an afternoon pick-me-up? We have you covered. Order a pot for yourself or share one with a friend. We serve hot tea and iced tea, as well as a selection of unique tea lattes, including a vibrant Matcha green tea latte, a Darjeeling crème caramel made with Recchiuti Burnt Caramel Sauce and garnished with a pinch of Jacobsen's sea salt, and a robust Masala Chai latte that is the perfect balance of sweet and spice.
Tea on Tap
In 2015 we started our draft tea program, offering our signature tea blends in a completely new form, and it has been a popular beverage at Smith year-round. You will always find Sparkling Strawberry Honeybush and Nitro Chai available at both Smith Teamaker Tasting Room locations.

Tea to Take
Need something to take with you? We offer all of our teas in packed sachets or as loose tea. We also offer growlers of our kegged products: a rotation of amazing flavors such as Sparkling Strawberry Honeybush or Nitro Chai. If you want a teapot or mug, or a metal strainer for brewing loose leaf, we offer a selection of those, too. We like the white porcelain Sowden teapots so much that we serve our tea in them; the same goes for our variable temperature Breville electric kettles. If you want tea that came right off the manufacturing line, look no further. You'll find us stocking the shelves with fresh tip top boxes taken right off the line. You won't see that anywhere else in America.
We have a small selection of small bite tea accompaniments at our SE Washington location, which is also situated among numerous restaurants and carts. Although we don't serve food or pastries at our NW Thurman location, our shop is flanked by some of the city's best eateries and bakeries. Feel free to take your tea to-go so you can enjoy a meal or fresh pastry with one of our neighbors, like Olympia Provisions or Breken Kitchen.
