The best places in Los Angeles for Mother's Day tea.Mother's Day to enjoy the oh-so-proper tradition of putting on your spring best and going out for afternoon tea? With teapots being brewed all over the city this Sunday, you're sure to find that perfect place to celebrate your dear mom. Here are our favorites:
Treat your mom to tea, finger sandwiches, and traditional English scones at Santa Monica's Tudor House for their Mother's Day Champagne Tea.
Join Just Jenn (and her grandmother) to launch her comic book, O.G. *Original Grandma, and to celebrate your own mother or grandmother with the Mother's Day High Tea Set featuring milk tea-infused cupcakes and brioche French toast at the quirky Royal/T Café in Culver City.
For a colorful sugar fix and an afternoon of shopping, take your mom for tea and macaroons in the garden of Jin Patisserie followed by perusing the shops on Abbott Kinney.
For the foodie mom, make reservations for Scarlet Tea Room's five course afternoon tea where you'll feast on strawberry sorbet, berry romanoff, a variety of tea sandwiches and champagne.
Make reservations for the famous Afternoon Tea in The Living Room at the Peninsula Hotel where you and mom will indulge in miniature caviar cake, champagne and a variety of tea.
Can't meet up for tea with mom? Send her Alchemist & Co's Green with Envy Afternoon Tea Set, which includes a perfectly brewed Japanese green tea latte, pistachio macaroons, green tea donuts and green Cymbidium orchids, all wrapped up in a lacquered tray box and topped with a note card. The only envious one will be you since you can't see her to split these yummy treats.
