Although the weather has been fantastic for the past couple of days, we've had a taste of the cold that's due to return soon. Sure, Portland is justifiably famous for its array of espresso-slinging cafes, but there's also an amazing assortment of specialty tea houses in our city. If you haven't visited the the Lan Su Chinese Garden in Chinatown -- and the accompanying Tao of Tea tea house within -- you're really missing out. There are a bunch of other must-visits all over the city, so grab a friend -- or a book -- and go check them out. Here's a round-up of six of Portland's best tea venues.
