When it comes to high tea in Sydney, you can’t go past the high tea experience at The Tea Room in QVB. Tucked away in the top corner of the QVB building, it’s a fancy setting complete with pretty floral tableware, nice comfy cushioned chairs and excellent service.
The regular high tea will set you back $55 per person, and for that price you’ll get plenty of food. Two three tiered stands of it in fact!
We’re impressed with the savoury starters, of which we get a plate each, a selection of three small bites. Our favourite is the spinach and gruyère cheese pastry.
Scones are very substantial in size. They are nice and moist and go well with the accompanying jam and cream.
Sandwiches are not so exciting, the selection including your classic fillings like chicken, ham and cheese.
We find the desserts to be a tad on the sweet side, especially the blueberry cake. The caramel mousse a little burnt tasting.
The lemon meringue tart is our favourite though, the tartness of the lemon cutting through the sweet.
