Fantastic, what an experience, I have had tea at most of the Tea establishments shown on Tea Map in the greater Los Angeles area and this place stands alone, it's no wonder they are #1 in California and were also voted #1 in the greater Los Angeles area by the viewers of MyFOX LA. This place is exceptional. On arrival our names were on a welcome side outside, from the minute we entered we were warmly welcomed and treated like royalty. The have a tea cart and we were able to smell teas, this took us all away from our traditional English Breakfast and Earl Grey and introduced us to teas we would never dream of ordering if we hadn't been able to smell them beforehand. The menu is both informative and comprehensive offering and accommodating all diet requirements, they even have a vegan selection. Our scones were light, fluffy and straight from the oven served from a jam cart where we were actually given 5 selections of jams and curds to pick from. The food is exceptionally fresh with beautiful presentation including fresh flowers. The service is professional and friendly and the cottage clean and decorated beautifully for the holidays, you can tell everyone loves to be there. We had the Holiday Duchess Tea and the presentation og the exquisite jewelry gift at the end left us all speechless. This is a first class act which other Tea Houses don't even come close to, you arrive as customers and leave as friends, a rare gift in today's world. Make reservations as they get busy! Thank you High Tea Cottage for an absolutely delightful afternoon spent in your little slice of Tea heaven. Evette and the girls.
