Hi Chows! My mother is in town this weekend and as she is a huge tea fan (seriously, the woman used to own her own tea house!) I thought I would take her to high tea on Sunday.
I was originally thinking of the Huntington Gardens because I thought it would be nice to stroll through the gardens followed by tea, but decided against it after reading mediocre reviews on the boards. I then decided on the Ritz in Pasadena because it got wonderful reviews and had what I'm looking for: fancy but tranquil atmosphere, gardens on the premises to walk through (she's visiting from wintery NY, so I wanted to show her some greenery) and of course, great food and tea. However it turns out the Ritz was bought by another hotel chain, The Langham!
Their website says they still do a high tea, but I’m wary of taking her someplace untested. Has anyone been to tea since the changeover? Or even heard from someone who has?
