Recently I have had the pleasure of experiencing two of the best high teas Melbourne has to offer.
The first being at the Langham and the second at The Hotel Windsor.
The Langham Chocolate Indulgence afternoon tea at the Langham’s famous Chocolate Bar is by far only for the brave of heart. The Langham offers an indulgent spread of chocolate treats and souffle’s to die for. If you are a true chocolate lover you will not be disappointed. The highlight of this experience is the personalised souffle making that is hand delivered to your table. You can sit and literally watch the souffle rise before your eyes and even meet the maker chef Markus Bohm. I can honestly say that I left this high tea truly satisfied.
The Hotel Windsor High Tea is for those who love luxury, grandeur and the traditional touch that only The Hotel Windsor can bring. The traditional tiffin of sandwiches, scones and savouries is served with sparkling wine, tea or coffee but we all know that a high tea is not complete without an array of sweets. With crepe suzettes served hot from pan to plate and the in house home made ice cream it is a splendid affair not to be missed.
I thoroughly enjoyed both experiences and would highly recommend you attend one if not both. Before signing off a tip for those new to high tea – an empty stomach and appetite is a must!
Until next time,
