By Christina Xenos

High tea takes on a whole new meaning in WP24 Restaurant and Lounge at the Ritz Carlton, Los Angeles. The hotel has sourced fine loose leaf teas from Art of Tea, which includes selections of white, green, black and herbal teas, as well as a signature blend created exclusively for the hotel.

To accompany the tea selection, dine on menu items such as miniature tea sandwiches (prosciutto with fig jam, lobster salad with pomegranate and eggplant goat cheese roulade with cucumber relish), along with tiered trays of holiday pastries, and freshly baked scones accompanied by house-made butters and creams.

In addition, their Children’s Holiday Tea features a festive child-friendly menu with items such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and mini ham and cheese croissants, along with cookies, hot chocolate, warm apple cider, and milkshakes. Carlton the Elf, The-Ritz Carlton’s holiday mascot, also makes an appearance for a special reading of The Lonesome Pine, a cherished children’s holiday book. Take a peek to see what you can expect:


Deviled eggs with caviar and fresh dill.



Plate of lobster salad tartlet with pomegranate, deviled egg with caviar, mini savory cupcake with fig jam and prosciutto, and smoked salmon sashimi with horseradish cream.
