Seventh Tea Bar

Seventh Tea Bar

Portola Coffee Lab Owners Jeff + Christa Duggan’s latest concept in Orange County redefines the Tea House

Expanding its modest selection of teas, Portola Coffee Lab is introducing a craft tea house, Seventh Tea Barwhich opened to the public today at the OC Mart Mix in Costa Mesa (3313 Hyland Avenue). The concept’s name is derived from the traditional Chinese belief that tea is the seventh of the seven necessities.

With more than 30 unblended single-estate teas brewed with various methods, Seventh Tea Bar will deliver an experience as rich as its sister coffee concepts, Portola Coffee Lab and Theorem slow bar. Owners Jeff and Christa Duggan will focus on a unique and thoughtful selection of unblended teas spanning the globe, but offerings will also include iced teas on tap, and fruit and herb-infused custom creations. Seventh will offer various traditional tea services for individuals or groups, complete with Chef-inspired tea sandwiches, scones and pastries. These will be available throughout the day to fulfill the most commonly followed tea times from around the world.

The design for Seventh Tea Bar can best be described as Victorian Modern, where old-school tea has a modern edge. The space features multiple seating options from table seating to oversized chairs. A patio is perfect for larger groups and special events.

Kim and I were invited for an early preview and to taste a couple of their teas and eats.  It looked like it would be a charming spot to enjoy some great tea.  We are looking forward to going and checking out what the vision turned into.
