Tea, yes. You, maybe. <3
How cute is that saying? lol That’s one of the first things you see when you walk in Alfred’s Tea Room and yes, it’s in pink lights! Alfred’s Tea Room is located in the heart of Melrose Place – basically across the street from Alfred’s Coffee. You can’t miss it – it’s the prettiest blush pink place on the street!
Ever since I saw they were opening a Tea Room, I was dying to go! If you know me, you know I love tea and afternoon high tea I went on a random week day with my friend Kristina and to our surprise – it was still crowded. Every girly girl in LA wanted a piece of blush heaven and a cup of delicious tea. They have a ton of cute mugs, tumblers, cards and refreshments for you to take home and they have a wonderful tea menu! I got my usual – Matcha Green Tea with boba (yes, they have boba!) and Kristina ordered their house special of the day – it was a Rose Mint Tea and she said it was delicious as well.
Unfortunately, they don’t really have a place for you to really sit and enjoy afternoon tea with your girls. They have some bar stools and a few benches outside but that’s about it. I think I hyped myself up and imagined it to be like an afternoon high tea room… with couches, tables, tea sets, etc. Even though they didn’t really have a lot of space to sit, I would still go back if I was in the area. Just being in there makes the girly girl in me so happy The staff is very nice and I want to try another tea flavor next time I go.
If you haven’t been yet or visiting the LA area soon, put this on your list of places to go. It’s one of the newest places in Los Angeles and has a ton of cute areas to snap some photos.
