I was lucky to have had the ultimate pleasure of having tea for the first time at the High Tea Cottage recently. It was simply exquisite. Frankly it was one of the most enjoyable, delicious teas I have ever had. I have fallen in love with their marzipan tea. I look forward to coming back to the a High Tea Cottage soon. In a world where it seems people are putting less and less effort into what they do, it was so utterly refreshing to experience people who truly care about what they are doing. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, the decor was adorable. Thank you for offering such a lovely, delightful and high quality experience.

My friend and I go all over California to have Tea and this was the first time we have been here. It was fantastic! OMG without question the very best ever! We have been to most of the Tea places listed for the LA area here on Tea Map and this place is so far in front, they would win the gold, silver and bronze medals. Over 100 loose leaf Teas, and offered from a cart so we could smell them. The food presentation is beautiful, the scones hot,just baked and a jam cart to make your choice from. Absolutely 10 Gold stars, the very best. Oh I forgot the service is great Peter the Butler was amazing too.

Time after time, my experience here is delightful and delicious. The tea master is by far the most knowledgeable, presenting an extensive tea selection. The food is always fresh and delectable, the presentation is gorgeous. I love how personable the staff is. This is a must experience for any occasion!

Just a lovely spot, party of 4 and we had a great time. Not rushed out and all the food was made to order and the salad I had, Classic Chicken just amazing with lots of tropical fresh fruits. Even gave me a beautiful compact for my birthday. I just loved this place so glad we found it and drove over 2 hours to get there. We will all be back for a Holiday gathering!

Absolutely EXCELLENT! I hosted a Baby Shower here for my sister last weekend and the owner Jean and her staff were wonderful, it was beyond what we expected, so professional yet very friendly, we felt like we were in her home. So glad this was our choice. The Food was outstanding and the frwesh flowers like we ordered them from a top florist, as I said, it was all and more than we expected. Easy to see why it is so popular. Thank you High Tea Cottage for a remarkable tea party, all our guests are talking bout when we can go back. Just wonderful!

Just left the High Tea Cottage and couldn't wait to leave a review. This IS the best Tea shop in LA. After going to Pasadena, downtown and even out to Lancaster none compare or compete on this level. Tea fare is consistently fresh, tasty and traditional. Tea sandwiches are small as they should be and the most variety I have ever been offered. No less than 8 flavore were served with my Lady Hamilton selection. The scone came straight from the oven with 2 flavore and a jam cart offered us 5 jams to choose from and we had lashings of clotted cream. A tea cart offered us over 150 teas to smell and choose from. The owners are lovely and knowledgeable. My guests and I were served quickly and friendly. Peter the Butler is very kind and eager to please and serve. To John O below I did not 'receive... (more)

Anyone who wrote a good review had to have received a discount. I would never want to return to this poor excuse of a tea house. I was scolded for arriving early and treated rudely the whole time. Disgusting honestly. Too expensive for lukewarm water and bread.

I have been to High Tea all over the world so my expectations are high. We were not disappointed here and I don’t think you will be either. This quaint Cottage knows how to do Tea right. Up there with the finest hotels that offer High Tea in Los Angeles. The china your Tea is served on is by far superior to any other in LA. The food presentation out shined our expectations, made to order so fresh as could be very tasty, plentiful and beautifully presented with fresh flower Service was great and the owners and staff so friendly, we felt like we were visiting old friends. Cannot say enough OR SPEAK MORE HIGHHLY. This really is the best!!!

The crepe was absolutely delicious! I would definitely recommend this! It was very savory! Also, there was a large variety of teas, the most of I've ever seen! The place was very quaint, very cute place to relax and enjoy conversation. The host was very sweet and professional. I enjoyed my experience here!

What a wonderful gem in CA! I have had afternoon tea all over the US & this was by the far the best afternoon teaI have ever had. Service & food was impeccable! The best part of tea was talking to the owner Jenn, she is fascinating with the best stories of her life experiences. My husband & I could have talked to her for hours. Ladies, it's even an enjoyable place for your husband to join you!

Jenn, as you know, my dear friend Annie invited me to join her at your lovely High Tea Cottage yesterday for High Tea. Jenn, you are an amazing hostess. Your cottage is so inviting, welcoming, cozy and delightful. Oh my, what scrumptious sandwiches and desserts!!! Enjoyed every bite. Ken was wonderful in explaining all the teas and letting us smell a few of the hundred or so selections. Annie was perfectly happy with her favorite - Marzipan - and it was just as wonderful as it always was. As for me, when I said I loved green tea, Ken brought out a heavenly Japanese green tea with, I think, cherry and rose flavors. I could honestly say it was the best tea I have ever had in my life. When Ken poured the first cup for me it was a lovely golden color and the taste!!!! Nirvana. Jenn, you are am... (more)

I have been here many times for all different occasions. I love the ambience and the table settings are wonderful. I've had fun trying different teas, since they have such a wide variety. the scones are always great - since they bake different ones all the time, I never know which one we will be getting this time. Not that it matters since they are all good and delicious. I like the tea sandwiches, but I think I would like a bit more variety.

I'm looking forward to my next visit - it's always special.

The High Tea Cottage Serves Up Rudeness on Mother’s Day

My daughter was taking me to the High Tea Cottage for Mother’s Day. We had a reservation for the 1:00 p.m. seating. We arrived at approximately 12:45 p.m. to be told very rudely that we would have to bear with them as they were running behind schedule. We were then told that we would have to wait outside (it was 104 degrees) until the previous seating was all cleared out. I was taken aback but okay.

At 1:15 p.m. I went back into the establishment, sweating, to see if they would give me an approximate time that we would be seated so that I could sit in my daughter’s air-conditioned car. With a bit of arrogance, I was told that after the cottage is all cleared out it would take at least another 15 minutes for them to ... (more)

Had a lovely time with my girlfriend for her birthday. The owner was nice and her husband told the story of the china for the tea served on special china (it was a while ago when we were last here). The quiet time sharing tea with my friend was a wonderful memory in this tea room. Thank you for her little gift for her birthday, that was very special and a surprising treat.

I have been to the High Tea Cottage many times but I would never pass up an opportunity to go there again.

I particularly like their tea cart with its vast variety and aromas. Jen is very knowledgeable about the health benefits, history and origin of each tea. She encourages you to smell the teas before you choose one. Your last cup of tea is just as good as the first one. Other tea houses refill your pot with hot water when it is empty but not at the High Tea Cottage--they make a fresh pot.

The food is delicious. Jen provides an incredible variety of tea sandwiches and the scones are always hot from the oven. The Devonshire Cream, lemon curd and jams really enhance the flavor of the scones.

There is always plenty of food. In fact, as an added treat, I'm able to take my deserts home with me.

The High Tea Cottage is definitely the best!!!

High Tea Cottage is absolutely the best. Jenn makes the afternoon tea a wonderfully enjoyable, delectable and a very engaging experience. The setting and service are impeccable with many delightful touches such as her vast knowledge of teas and their benefits. You can go for a very filling tea with incredible sandwiches, scones (always warm from the oven) and superior tea choices or you can have a lighter fair which will absolutely satisfy your appetite. I have experienced afternoon tea at roughly 40 tea houses and this is definitely my favorite place. Jenn and Ken make it a most enjoyable and entertaining afternoon.
