La Tea Da Tea Room — Tillamook, OR

Friends Marilyn and La Donna had mentioned
the LaTea Da Tea Room in Tillamook, OR,
 but I didn't make reservations prior to departing on our trip because
I thought we probably would not have time to drive 1 1/2 hours
 from Portland for tea.  
Well, I was wrong. 
After driving several hours through the Columbia River Gorge
late Friday afternoon,
GJ told me to call to see if we could make reservations
for Saturday.
The guys enjoyed tea so much in Vancouver, they were ready for another. 
GJ and AJ are the best tea buddies! 

We arrived in Tillamook after a long day
of driving along the beautiful coast of Oregon
and a stop at the Tillamook Cheese Factory.
 
Each of us ordered a different tea from the menu of nearly
50 teas and Tisanes. 
AJ ordered the Scottish Breakfast
I ordered the Pai Mu Tan
and GJ ordered the Decaf. Irish Breakfast
We all ordered the La Tea Da High Tea which began with a
tiny teacup of sorbet. 
Each of us received our own three tier server. 
with sandwiches and savories
two scones served with cream, butter, jam and lemon curd
and "dainty" desserts. 
La Tea Da has a very nice gift shop with tea and gift items. 

After this delicious afternoon tea, we drove the rental car back to Portland
to continue our visit before deaprting for home on Tuesday.
