Chado Tea Room

369 East 1st Street

The Chado Tea Room is the tea shop that revolutionized tea drinking in the Los Angeles area, with over 300 loose leaf teas from around the globe.

Established in 2008, Chado Tea Room,  connected to the Japanese American National Museum, offers a tranquil respite from the hectic pace of downtown. It's a civilized spot--white tablecloths, bone china, soft light--to enjoy a quick refreshment or a full-afternoon tea spread of sandwiches, scones with fresh cream, fruit and jam, and a selection of sweets. Offerings include authentic Japanese tea ceremony teas. If you just want lunch, enjoy a Waldorf salad or souchong chicken sandwich either inside or on the patio replete with bamboo and soothing fountains. It's an ideal spot for baby and bridal showers or for a break from gallery browsing at the Japanese American Museum or nearby Geffen Contemporary Museum.
