The Afternoon Tea At This British-Themed Brunch Spot In Southern California Will Transport Your Taste Buds Across The Pond

The tradition of the British afternoon tea service dates back to the 1800s, relatively recent in England’s history. By the end of the 19th century, afternoon tea became a social event for women in high society, who would put on gloves, hats, and gowns to enjoy their tiny sandwiches, sweets, and of course, tea. Here in Southern California, many of us have come to enjoy a version of this tradition. Get ready to don your gloves and hat for this afternoon tea in Sierra Madre where your taste buds may just think they are overseas.

Henry James is quoted as saying, “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” In a place like The Four Seasons Tea Room, we cannot agree more. Have you been to this tea room? Or do you have another favorite spot for this sweet mid-day tradition? Find out more on The Four Seasons Tea Room website or Facebook page.
