Sip Tea Procured From a Tea Master at Smacha in Bellevue

Jason Chen launched a business selling wholesale tea in the late '90s, which eventually evolved into Smacha, an authentic tea house in Bellevue, about 15 years later. It wasn't that simple, though. During that time he became a tea master and traveled the world experimenting with teas and procuring the best ingredients from the right locations. His care and expertise comes through in every cup, according to those who frequent Smacha.

Regulars recommend having a seat at the bar, where you can enjoy the soothing indoor waterfall. Feel free to chat with a staff member behind the counter, who'd be happy to come up with some recommendations based on your preferences. Then, you can watch him or her as they craft a pot of cup of tea especially for you. They're also trained in the tea-growing process, and they can tell you about the region in which the tea you chose originated. If you'd like to recreate this experience at home, Smacha offers an extensive selection of tea and teaware for purchase.

Watch Your Kids Zoom Down the Zipline at Wilburton Hill Park

With trails that feed right into the Bellevue Botanical Garden, Wilburton Hill Park is perched at the perfect spot for nature lovers. The 105-acre park is beautiful enough to keep you inspired for the entire day, but you can also use it as a gateway to the city's flourishing botanical garden.

If you decide to make a day of it at Wilburton Hill Park, make sure to bring the kids along. Although the park's playground isn't necessarily large, its zip line enthralls little ones. Grab a bench or slab of grass and watch while they play, or bring the whole extended family to the baseball field for a game. Nearby, you'll find a soccer field, an area where you can spread out picnic lunches, and bathrooms so that you don't have to head home in the middle of the day. The park is open from dawn to dusk, so swing by whenever the sun is shining.
