Whether you're looking to sip special blends or prefer classics like chamomile, stay warm this winter at one of these elegant high tea hot spots.
Afternoon tea at Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air

American Tea Room
Located in the heart of the Beverly Hills, this charming outpost offers a wide selection of tea and teaware, as well as a variety of local pastries from Cake Monkey Bakery. If you’re in need of an afternoon caffeine boost, try the Arabian “White Coffee” Tea made with pure white tea, orange blossom, rose water, syrup and mint.

Visit this Parisian favorite for a high-end tea service between 3-6pm. The prix fixe menu serves guests a variety of comforting teas, in addition to Laudurée’s craveable macarons, finger sandwiches and more.

The Peninsula
If you’re after a festive holiday tea time this season, head to The Living Room at The Peninsula hotel. The property’s Royal Tea service includes a wide selection of teas, petite pastries, scones and a glass of Champagne. Plus, during the month of December the hotel donates $5 of every tea service booked to Make-a-Wish Los Angeles. What better excuse to celebrate?

Tres by José Andrés at SLS Beverly Hills
Check out the luxury tea selection at Tres by José Andrés between 3-5pm daily. The caffeine-free Harmony blend made with peppermint leaves, chamomile flowers, orange blossoms and allspice is a house favorite, as is the exclusive SLS blend—an antioxidant-rich ceylon tea perfumed with golden Jasmine blossoms. Hungry for a sweet treat? Make sure to order the chocolate pop rocks, a soft spice cookie or almond orange tart.

Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air
Turn traditional afternoon tea into a family affair at Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air. In addition to offering a selection of more than 15 loose leaf teas, the service also includes delectables like the wild mushroom and goat cheese en croute, sourdough grilled cheese with Gruyere and huckleberry cheesecake, which are favorites of parents and kiddos alike. In the mood for a little something extra? Adults can add bubbly to their order. Cheers!
