American Tea Room offers a distinctly “American tea experience,” featuring a selection of over 200 premium, global teas carefully selected by CEO David Barenholtz.
Founded in 2003, the company has been a pillar in the Los Angeles food and beverage scene with its first shop in Beverly Hills (re-opening in early 2016 following renovations), followed by two new locations opened in fall 2015—the flagship store in downtown Los Angeles’ burgeoning Arts District and the newest store in Newport Beach’s Fashion Island. Featuring a warm and inviting atmosphere in a modern, industrial setting, the American Tea Room offers an indoor-outdoor “tea oasis” where guests can enjoy a wide variety of rare and exotic teas by the glass, a premium selection of matcha, and specialty tea drinks, prepared using state-of-the-art BKON brewers that brew a cup of tea in less than 60 seconds. All 200 teas are available for purchase in award-winning designed packaging, as well as tea ware, matcha bowls and accessories, custom glassware, and more at all of its locations and through its robust, online sales division, which ships nationally. Culinary Director Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections offers her take on light, tea-infused savory dishes, as well as her signature pastries and confections. At all locations, an Interactive “Tea Zone” with a 46” touch screen allows guests to explore the world of tea and learn about their favorite varietals by appellation, tasting notes, and mood.
