Palos Verdes Afternoon Tea Informally

LAmande Bakery scones

I love the relaxation of Afternoon Tea and Palos Verdes does not have any choice other than Trump National.  I keep hoping that Terranea Resort will offer an Afternoon Tea but no response yet.  Yesterday, I learned that L’Amonde Bakery on Pacific Coast Highway in Torrance offers freshly baked scones every day at 3:00 p.m. and I decided to have my own little Afternoon Tea.  I purchased two scones (daily special was Lemon Lavender with lemon curd) and headed home to brew my own tea.  I chose Lupicia Caramel & Rum Rooibos (available at Mitsuwa Marketplace on Western in Torrance).  As the tea brewed, I set out my tea cups and plated the scones.  Within 10 minutes, we were sitting down and enjoying a mid afternoon treat!

L'Amande Bakery, Torrance, CA

Annie’s Tea Time, 656 Silver Spur Road in Rolling Hills Estates is also another good place to buy unique teas and they have a terrific selection of all things tea (teapots, cups, spoons, cozys, biscuits, etc.).  L’Amonde Bakery (2552 Pacific Coast Highway, Torrance, 310-326-8980) also has a fabulous Papilloto which is the closest thing to a kouign amann (a buttery Breton pastry with a crunchy caramelized top) that can be found locally.
