my raTEAng 1-18

Another 6 Spots on the list!  Here’s what I think from “yuck” to “Can I stay here forever!?”


18. Tal-Y-Tara Tea & Polo Shoppe – Outright rude and has no business being a tea house.


17. Secret Garden Tea House, San Francisco – Filthy place with yummy scones.

16. Tea Time, Palo Alto – Awkward dirty café that left me thirsty.


15. The Golden Tea Garden, Hayward – Bad-mannered + arrogant owner with dollar store décor + tea.


14. Linde Lane Tea Room, Dixon – Snooty but pretty with fun sorbet intro.


13. Lovejoy’s Tea Room, San Francisco – Pretentious area with spectacular Black Vanilla tea.


12. Quail & Thistle Tea Room, Capitola – Adorable building with overwhelming all-in-one plate.


11. The Rotunda at Nieman Marcus, San Francisco – Matter-of-fact service and expensive teeny tasteless food.


10. Satori Tea Company, San Jose – Interesting + eclectic, rum butter crumpets, and purple tea.


9. Afternoon Tea at The Ritz, San Francisco – A definite must-experience with exceptional service.


8. The Palace Garden Court, San Francisco – Breathtaking surroundings and flawless food.


7. Lovey’s Tea Shoppe, Pacifica – Black Vanilla with Lavender tea, asparagus sandwich, and sweet staff.


6. Camellia Tea Room, Benicia – Impeccable service and an all-around wonderful time.


5. Lisa’s Tea Treasures, Los Altos – Like going to your sister’s house and having delicious food + tea.


4. Crown & Crumpet Tea Stop Café, San Francisco – Unforgettable crumpets and scrumptious tea sandwiches.


3. Pardee Home, Oakland – A tour in a tour that will feed you until satisfaction and the definition of ‘cuteness overload’.


2. Dartealing Lounge, San Francisco – Best sandwiches and cutest ambiance.


1. The English Rose Tea Room, Pleasanton – A hundred delectable teas and textbook shabby chic décor.
