Huntington Library Tea Room, Updated

In the past I have known the Huntington Library Tea Room to be set up as a food buffet with tea and scones served at your table.  Now a tiered tray of tea sandwiches and pastries are served at your table. You now receive a menu, listing the items that will be served. There is also a long list of teas that you may request in addition to the signature Huntington Blend such as Jasmine, Tropical Fruits, Vanilla, Bergamot, etc.

If you have a large party, like I did on this day, there is a small private room that also has plenty of light shining in and with views of the herb garden.



Smoked Salmon & Caviar 🍴Avocado w/ Arugula and Mushrooms [intended to taste like bacon] 🍴 Persian Cucumber w/ Goat Cheese and Watercress 🍴Chicken Salad Sandwich 🍴Egg Salad Cup


Crumpets are a new item that are added to this tea experience. Scones and Crumpets are made fresh every morning…


The fruit was fresh and light. I noticed a little fella on the top tier that I was not familiar with, it was a gooseberry…


Oh you little Gooseberry! Fun Nutritional Fact: High in Vitamin C and known to fight aging, cancer, and neurological diseases. Fun Urban Term: Someone who tags along with a couple or couples, but is single themselves 😁
It was a mixture of rain and sunshine today. My group was lucky, it only rained when we were in the tea house. It was so calming to be sipping on a variety of teas and nibbling on finger foods while looking out at the garden with the rain coming down.
