chado tea room is just charming.It is tucked back from the busy colorado blvd. While you are there you forget you are in the mid of old town. The teas are very nicely arranged on one side of the tea room, over two houndred, we first went to buy a gift for a friend we end up tasting over four diffent teas, and left the tea room with two full bag of teas. The guys behind the counter kept on brewing samples. I have done a lot of wine tasting events, by far sniffing over thirty teas topped all the tasting events I had before. The tea room is nicely decorated. I especially liked the ambiance its just welcoming to all and very modern. If you like flavors try the st.marc's which is a berry blend and their cinnamon appricot tea.The food is always tasty and very filling. chado is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon with your friends. I think this the best tea room in LA.
