High Tea/Afternoon Tea at The Tea Room QVB

As promised, normal blogging resumes and hopefully I shall get crazy internet connection from the 10th of April. I am finally jumping on the Naked ADSL 2+ bandwagon and cancelled my landline mwahahahaha!

Afternoon Tea, The Tea Room QVB


So back in September 2011.. *cough*, I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon catching up with a uni friend at The Tea Room QVB. I was absolutely in love with the decor and table set up since I have this weird obsession with Victorian styled items, especially cups and saucers.

We chose the Traditional Afternoon Tea which costs $39 during the weekday and $43 on weekends. This includes "A set selection of finger sandwiches, petit fours, sweet and savoury pastries, scones with preserve and clotted cream" with a tea or coffee of your choice.

 
Chamomile Tea

We both chose to drink tea because you can refill :P, sipping them gracefully while gossiping lol.

 Three Tiered Stand

The food arrives on a beautiful 3 tiered stand with matching plates for the cups and saucers. *love*

 
Sweet Pastries

The top tier consists of a selection of sweet pastries such as opera cakes, fruit tarts and mini cupcakes.

Finger Sandwiches

The Second Tier had finger sandwiches filled with egg, mayo, beef and lettuce. We gobble them up hungrily but didn't know we could top up the sandwiches! I felt a bit cut that no one informed me about the top up :(

Petite Fours

The Bottom Tier was space for the petite fours of mini strawberries and cream tart, passionfruit melting moments and pastel green macarons.

The scones came a little late but it did come out hot and fresh. Alongside of it were mini quiches filled with spinach and egg.

Scones and Quiches

 
Jam and Clotted Cream

It was the last day for the David Jones Flower Show so we took a little stroll over and the display was beautiful.
