our roots


aes·thete /ˈesˌTHēt/ noun

In Japanese culture: The practice of tea ceremony is referred to as chadō (茶道): the Way of Tea, telling us that tea is not just a drink: it's an aesthetic, a spiritual practice, a mindset, a way of living. Tea offers a place of sanctuary from worldly concerns. The host and guest spend time over a bowl of matcha, with the host displaying deep consideration towards the guest, who responds in gratitude. 

Aesthete Tea is an artisan tea brand (soon to be Tea Room) that is Oregon based and featured at a variety of Events and Pop-ups around the state. The Tea Room's permanent and main location is to be opened in Oregon in 2018. The Tea Room was born from the desire to create a physical space that joined a slow living lifestyle with culture and art. 

Tea has been integrated into a vast number of traditions, natural medicines and communions internationally. Our mission is to bring the ancient respect and knowledge of tea to the current world, through a minimalist brand that represents the modern tea drinker.
