It always pleases me to know that there’re quite a few of teahouses in Old Town Pasadena co-existing. If quaint is not your style, there’s the elegant and pretty Scarlet Tea Room.
The interior is bright, elegant and cute like a dollhouse. The chandelier looked like it should be a miniature.
The menu offers different tea sets: Five Course Tea Ceremony, Three Course or the Mini Tea $14.95 that we got.
You can choose two from a variety of Tea Sandwiches. I like the Roast Beef & Aged White Cheddar the most.
You also get a small pot of loose leaf tea. The selection of tea isn’t as big as other tea houses, but it’s good for people who doesn’t want to go through a phone list of tea.
The Mini Tea set rounded off with a dessert: Strawberry Romanoff. It is so fresh and delicious!
Though it lacked the authenticity of a traditional English tea room, you’d feel like stepping into a charming world of dollhouse. They have live Jazz and dining menu at night as well.
