The Best Cafes & Tea Rooms Around Town | L.A. Eats

The world is reawakening to the wonder of a properly brewed cup of tea and is developing cultures around the beverage. The morning coffee is losing its spot to morning tea, afternoon tea with cake or crackers for a mid-day pick-me-up, and some evening tea when meeting with friends or business associates. In response to the demand, teashops and cafes have mushroomed worldwide.

Southern California has also had a boom, and there are many coffeehouses now.
