Patina now offers table-side tea service
Just in time for the chilly L.A. weather Patina has rolled out a new table-side tea service that will transport you to a fireside state of mind within minutes of its arrival. The new tea-cart experience offers 16 loose teas alongside a variety of fresh herbs that are cut table-side and used for infusion.
Upon request the teas and herbs will be rolled on over to you so you can personally inspect them before deciding on a flavor. The available herbs include chamomile, citronelle, lavender, rosemary and peppermint. If you select any of these they will be washed in fresh water and allowed to infuse for 5 minutes.
Loose-leaf teas include black, herbal, green and white varietals in rich, full-bodied flavors such as French plum, lavender Earl Grey, organic masala chai, jasmine pearls and organic bai mudan from China.
The service is tailored to honor ceremony, so expect a formal but lovely delivery method. And don't be afraid to linger over a hot cup of tea, that's what you're expected to do. It's all very civilized.
