I recently came across a list of the best spots for afternoon tea in Los Angeles as suggested by Daily Candy. I would agree that The Peninsula Beverly Hills and Jin Patisserie on Abbot Kinney both serve a beautiful tea, though in completely different styles. One often overlooked tea room that I believe deserves mention is Chado Tea Room.
My friend Mary Elizabeth introduced me to Chado when I was new to Los Angeles, and I’ve since enjoyed tea at all of their So Cal locations. My favorite is their newly-reopened tea room at the Hollywood & Highland Center. Even with the hustle and bustle out on the boulevard, guests still get the sense of relaxing over a cup of tea. Chado is the largest importer of tea in the US with 300 types of tea available in store and more than 1,000 online.
In honor of Mother’s Day, TOURific Escapes is offering a special promotion of Tea for Two at Chado in Hollywood. You can be entered to win by commenting, liking or sharing this blog. If you live too far away to enjoy tea at Chado, you can choose instead to have a tea sampler mailed to you directly. One lucky winner will be drawn on Sunday May 13. Tell me, where’s your favorite place to enjoy a pot of tea?
