My daughter and I have been coming here since she was in middle school. Home from college before her senior year, we again celebrated a special time together that was just as lovely and delicious as always. Thank you, Jenn, for giving us this wonderful tea house.

Love this little tea house in Woodland Hills. We've been twice in two weeks. Wonderful service, quaint setting and delicious food. Everything is so fresh and tasty. We hardly ever have room for the dessert. It's such a treat to dine here. Love this place!!

Love the High Tea Cottage! We try to go as often as possible. Jenn & Ken are affable host/esses. The teas are fab, my fav is the Buckingham Palace Blend. The food is wicked tasty, as well. We always leave in a great mood. The wait staff is courteous and efficient.

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.

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!!!

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.

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)

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.

Just loved this place, they really do Tea right. The Tea cart is wonderful where you can smell all the Teas on offer; the food is extremely traditionally English, made to order, served with fresh flowers elegance and style. We wish we lived closer! Our favorite by far on a recent trip to Los Angeles.

I went to the High Tea Cottage for the first time on Saturday for a friend's birthday tea. I was amazed at the ambience, quality and quantity of food, the service (would you believe our own butler who was dressed for the part), the host's opening address exposing the teas for us in a very humorous (British) way? Not to mention the decor, the use of the patio and allowing us the time to really enjoy the birthday spirit. If the rest of the offerings are as good as our experience I can highly recommend you should try it.

This is an outstanding Tea House, they do events all the time offering different themes and menus. Lots of loose leaf tea that you are able to smell before making your choice, the hot teapots just keep coming and if they are not busy you can have extra flavors and I've never been charged for it, We just had the most delightful Easter Tea, wonderful service by Peters the Butler and a few weeks ago attended the Downton Abbey Tea where everyone came in costume for the Theme. My husband (who just loves going there)was Lord Edward Hughes and I was addressed as Lady Hughes all through the Tea. Just amazing in both food, ambiance, presentation, service and company.

Have been coming here since 2010 and ALWAYS have a lovely experience. This month we attended the Valentines Candlelight Supper the only time the Cottage is open in the evening and it was just magical. This week they had their Guest Appreciation Tea for just $12. This is a wonderful way to say thank you to, patrons. The food is always consistently good, fresh, salads all organic and very flavorful. They have the best selection of Teas we have found in any other establishment and being able to smell them is an added bonus. I highly recommend the High Tea Cottage for any special occasion or just to drop by for tea and scones, which always are straight from the oven!

G'Day! Clare & I returned for the Australian Day Tea/Luncheon last Friday. We weren't disappointed! From the Cheese & Crackers to the beautiful Pavlova with cream, strawberries and kiwi fruit to the tasty Lamington, the dinner was marvelous and very filling. Alas, we had to take some of it home. There were gifts on the table and a door prize drawing. I won an authenic Australian Boomerang and Clare won a 2013 Australian Calendar. The service was as usual impeccable. Jenn was able to spend time with all guests and related many stories about her homeland. Her assistant Sherie was ever present with water, tea and food. It was a memorable experience and we're looking forward to 2014.

This place is amazing. A friend took me here for my birthday a few years ago and we have been going ever since. I love that they have a selection of over a hundred teas. They bring a sampling of them all on a cart anask you questions to try and narrow it down to a select few that they highly recommend. You get to smell the tea leaves then make your choice. I have fallen in love with so many new varieties of tea this way. The owners are very knowledgeable on their teas and will talk your ear off if are interested. Excellent service. NO complaints with that. I have tried something different on their menu each time and each time is amazing. Mouth watering food everytime. I don't evne have to force my husband to come along(maybe it sounds to girly for some guys, like my husband who usually prefers hotdogs at Dodger stadium. LOL)- he salvates over their food too. I lvoe this place and can't wait to return. I highly recommend The High Tea Cottage

My sister discovered this Peachy little tearoom less than 5 miles from her house a few weeks ago. Since then we have been a total of 3 times and each time it gets better. The last time we went we met the owner, Jen, who has been away in Australia. What a nice lady, friendly, hospitable and very knowledgeable.
The atmosphere in this teahouse is full of charm, refined settings and great food aromas.
As there are nearly 30 different food menus and 100 teas I don't think we will get tired of going anytime soon.

I had the pleasure of experiencing the High Tea Cottage today. Over 200 tea selections and the expertise to share how they are grown, where they come from and what to expect. The ambiance is inviting, cozy and a bit magical. I say this because while I was enjoying my own experience I witnessed something I've never seen before in all the years I've been in this business. A little girl arrived with her Mother for a special High Tea afternoon. The owner Jenn had asked some specific questions from the Mother when the reservation was made. The names of her pets was one that comes to mind. Jenn shared that the Tea Fairy had told her the little girl was coming and she also told her about the little girls pets.

This was my third visit here and I am finally going to give a review this time. All three visits have been marred by the owners attitude. She seems to think that her opinion is the ultimate choice that the customers must make. My friend didn't care for her tea being so strong and asked if she could recommended another flavor. The owner began a long explanation about tea that wasn't necessary. We go to tea houses all over and have never been made to feel so bothersome to our server. My friend finally just said her tea would be fine. I will not take another guest to this tea house to be treated so rudely.

Yesterday my Mother, Daughter and I went to try out the High Tea Cottage for my Daughter's upcoming Bridal Luncheon. We had never been to a Tea House before. My Daughter was the only one who was very skeptical about the whole idea. The High Tea Cottage did not disappoint. Jen and Ken welcomed us in to sit down. I explained to Jen that we where not sure about the menu and how to order. Jen suggested we try the Lady Hamilton, meanwhile Ken started to explain the different teas to us, which was the best presentation of tea I have ever seen. I chose the Queen Elizabeth and my Mom chose the Marzipan. I cannot remember which one my Daughter chose. Mine was delightful.... However my Mom's eyes lit up like a little kid's when she tasted her's. She said it was the best! Jen served us the Chicken, C... (more)

I love this place- We have been going here for a few years and it never fails to disappoint us. The selection of Teas is phenomenal, the food is delicious, and the presentation and service are excellent. The owner has a wonderful memory and remembers us well and always asks after whoever is not joining us that particular time. I am surprised at the review on 8/23 by Liz- we've never been treated poorly there and we don't go in dressed up or anything like that. I highly highly recommend High Tea Cottage!

we have been to the Four Seasons, The Ritz Carlton, the London and most Tea Houses in Southern Cal and Nome compare to the High Tea Cottage. The food is fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The service is very good, our tea was constantly poured, refreshed and always very hot. The owners are knowledgeable and friendly, we felt like we were in a private home. It was an absolute pleasure to Tea at this beautiful establishment. We will be back again and again!!!

Just a lovely experience, twice; Forst time to check out the Tea room for a Bridal Shower back in May and again for the Shower a few weeks ago.
Jenn and her staff went beyond expectations with the room floral arrangements, the welcome given to guests, the service from staff, presentation of the food, fresh orchids adorned the plates would you believe and the most delectable food…yum yum. If you are thinking of having a Bridal Shower, from our experience, you really can’t go wrong here, everything was just perfect,and not expensive, (a lot more food and amenities than everywhere else we looked into and less $$). Thank you Jenn, Monica and Chef Miss Karen for a most enjoyable afternoon, everyone is still raving!!

This is a wonderful tea place, visited while on vacation in Los Angeles and it is the best we have been to in California, or any where for that matter. The staff are very friendly indeed, accomodating and knowledgeable. My Mom who is both gluten free and vegetarian was able to enjoy a 3 course Tea with little sandwiches, scones and desserts all gluten free, an absolute first for any tea room. Can not speak highly enough about this place. We would give the High Tea Cottage 10 stars if we could. Look forward to coming back again next time in California.
