Tea, Finger Foods, and Roses Jan 21, 2008
Tea at the Huntington Library's Rose Garden Tea Room is a luxurious way to spend an afternoon because the locale overlooks acres of roses. Tea service here is not your typical afternoon tea...it is a buffet of yummy finger foods in addition to exceptionally tasty teas and scrumptious fresh baked scones.

The buffet of finger foods includes decadent sandwiches like Tarragon chicken salad with walnuts on whole wheat, Proscuitto di Parma with Maytag Blue Cheese and Bartlett Pears, and Smoked Salmon & Chive with Cucumber.

Also on the menu are several types of crackers and breads with several spreads, including caviar, and a great cheese plate to accompany them. There are four types of salads as well.

For the sweet-toothed, the tea room serves fresh fruit, fruit tartlets, cookies, and mini desserts several with chocolate...yum-o!

All are welcome to the Rose Garden Tea Room whether you are dressed in a 3-piece suit or sneaker and shorts.

In January, the tea service cost $20 for adults. Unfortunately since then the cost has risen to $25.

Reservations are a must because of limited seating as well as limited hours of operation.

To enjoy a tea service at the Rose Garden Tea Room, you also have to pay admission onto the grounds...but viewing the gardens and art collections is a great way to walk off the calories.
