The consummate purveyor of all things tea, American Tea Room at Fashion Island with more than 200 rare teas by the glass is a great place to shop, sip, dine, and socialize in a contemporary atmosphere. And starting Saturday, it’s launching “Tea Service,” a modern interpretation of high tea—no stuffy doilies or china. It’s offered every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. in three sizes and served on custom wooden boards.
Your options include: “American Tea” with a choice of a pot of classic or signature tea; Crème Fraîche Scone with Tangier tea butter and preserves; Chai Chicken Sandwich with chai and curry spices, red onion, and apple; Watercress Sandwich with radish, butter, and fleur de sel; Smoked Salmon and Chive Cream Pinwheel with mascarpone, wild arugula, and Meyer lemon; Matcha Panna Cotta; choice of Petit Four including matcha, Champagne, rose petal passion fruit, and lavender and tea-infused Truffle including matcha, jasmine pearl, Earl Grey, and Marrakesh mint at $35.
“A Little Less” – the same as the “American Tea” but without the chai chicken sandwich and smoked salmon and chive cream pinwheel at $25.
“A Bit More” – the same as the “American Tea” but with a choice of a pot of tea (including Single Estate and Rare teas), four tea sandwiches, including the Avocado Sandwich with mayonnaise, arugula, and pickled jalapeno, and choice of two petit fours and two truffles at $45.
Items are available à la carte with tea sandwiches offered for $6 each, scones from $4-4.50, and desserts from $2-5.
American Team Room also offers a daily happy hour special from 3-6 p.m. featuring half off tea with the purchase of a pastry.
Open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
