Ask for Hernando. He is extremely knowledgable about all of the teas and will present you with the great history of the tea leaf.

Take advantage of the knowledge that the staff has about their teas. The tea menu could be overwhelming if trying to decide on your own--the variety is tremendous.

It was my first time in Chado Tea Room and I definitely wanna come again! The atmosphere was super relaxing and our waiter did a great job with tea and chocolate serving and describing all we have to do :) The service was truly excellent, and the most appreciated, we took our time and enjoyed it fully over 1,5h. Very nicely spent Sunday afternoon, and I will definitely come back.

From Our Editors

Devan and Reena Shah, and Tek Mehreteab are passionate about tea. By sourcing leaves from eight regions in India, China, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Japan, they are able to proffer more than 300 standard and specialty varieties online and inside Chado Tea Room. The name Chado, taken from the Chinese cha, meaning "tea," and the Japanese do, meaning "path," speaks to the ownersโ€™ strict standards for their product. Many of their green, black, white, and oolong teas are USDA-certified organic; the Shahs also stock unique varieties such as Chinese pu-er teas and hand-tied blooming tea balls. In addition, they brew special house blends for morning, afternoon, and evening, helping customers find the right blend to start the day or serve to bats that have invaded their home.

Staffers pair teas with an array of cream-topped scones, cookies, cakes, and roasted savory sandwiches during teatime at Chado's three tearooms. Though each location is decorated differently, the same three-tiered sandwich platters and steaming pots of tea travel between panda paintings hanging in the Los Angeles location, underneath strings of holiday lights at the Pasadena location, and between ceiling-high wooden shelves stocked with mugs, filters, teapots, and bags of loose-leaf tea at the Hollywood location.
