It's one word. It's real simple. And it's PEOPLE.

we wholeheartedly believe that people are what matters in life. We think going the extra mile is great, but that sprinting the extra five is even better. 

We promise to care every step of the way - from buying direct whenever possible, to acknowledging the importance of caring for the hands that pick the tea, to the attention and detail with which we prepare and package the finished product. 


We honestly couldn't be happier to introduce this site to you. Kettle/Black Teahouse has been a dream 10 years in the making and to see it take shape has been nothing short of breathtaking.

Soon you'll be able to find us in a retail space, located in our favorite ocean-side town of beautiful Cannon Beach, Oregon.

As we continue to work toward making that store a reality, take a look around this site. We've created a sample of what we'll be able to offer you in the future. Meanwhile, we're here to provide you with an ever-growing selection of quality, fresh, unique, loose leaf tea - and of course, to answer any questions.

We truly wish to be your go-to resource for all things tea. I mean, we can't stop talking about it so you might as well join in on the conversation!
