Who WE ARE

Tea Fest PDX is a comprised of a community of tea visionaries, business owners and tireless volunteers who all share the vision of celebrating tea culture in Portland. Together we are combining our unique skills and passions to bring the festival to life. 

How it all started

We’ve had the pleasure of attending the Northwest Tea Festival in Seattle the past few years and realized just how many people who enjoy and participate in tea culture were travelling from Oregon for this event. With the nudge of encouragement and continued support from the NW Tea Festival organizers we've been able to bring the idea of a tea festival of our own to fruition through the help and hard work of our local tea community.

Our vision

Our mission is to bring people of all cultural traditions together to celebrate tea and tea culture in the Pacific Northwest, to educate participants on the cultural origins and health benefits of tea, and to inspire them to greater connections within the larger community through the sharing of tea.
