American Tea Room Now Steeping In Newport Beach

Who wouldn't benefit from a hot cup of matcha right now? That's what Fashion Island is banking on, as Beverly Hills brand American Tea Room calmly opened its doors earlier this month. With over 200 types of black, green, oolong and white varieties in their inventory, they corner the market on all things leafy and infusing. Housed adjacent to R+D Kitchen, this isn't your standard tea time establishment.

A place to indulge in a refined sip, you won't find dainty pastries and mismatched cups and saucers here. Think touch-screen scanners that'll help determine your preferred style. A handful of savory offerings (lunch options coming soon) can keep you company as you lounge. Not into the hot stuff? We departed with a Marrekesh mojito over ice, and are thinking about their chilled blueberry rooibos shrub or masala horchata next time.

Something special's brewing.

Newport Coast residents can breathe a sigh of relief, as they are the primary reason ATR chose to set up shop in this particular neighborhood. Turns out much of the luxury brand's Orange County business comes from this area. If spending $6 on a mug of London fog (Earl Grey Shanghai, vanilla syrup and steamed milk) seems a bit much, just think about the last time you bought a coffee drink. Now head on over to see what the fuss is about. 

American Tea Room is now open at 549 Newport Center Drive in Newport Beach, (949) 432-6006;
