High Tea

High Tea

Somewhere for a nice afternoon break to chill from a busy morning or busy week with a cuppa and a piece of cake!

Sometimes we just need a short escapade from our busy work life to rejuvenate ourselves.

Throwback to the recent high tea at Skai. Pretty love their selections as they have quite a good mix of sweet and savory. Flavors is varied across the different dainty pieces such that you won’t get sick of it. From savory to umami to citrusy to sweetness to nuttiness etc! What’s more, you have a good panoramic view of the whole Singapore skyline to accompany you throughout your whole dining experience!

I really love the light fluffiness texture of the cloud. It has a very nice milkiness to it, in contrast with the citrusy strawberry basil fillings. It’s as though I’m eating airy marshmallows with strawberry fillings! Matches perfectly with a cup of Hojicha Latte which was bittersweet with a strong tea aroma.

How I wish I can enjoy my Mt Fuji at Mt Fuji itself! Lightly fluffed white chocolate whipped cream that's resemble the snowy cover of Mt Fuji. Beneath it, lies layer of green tea ganache and sweet azuki beans. Light bittersweet tart that is suitable for after dinner.

Served in a classy crate laid with black pebbles brings out the charm of the starter. Unlike what I expected of a silky smooth steamed egg, it's a smooth scrambled eggs alike texture topped with ikura, cavier and urchin. In love with how the flavorburst of ikura and umami tasting urchin complement with the eggs! Delicious starter to welcome the main high tea jewel tier!

Otherwise known as Sakura, brings about faint of flora and sweetness. The yoghurt parfait paired with red berries coulis, refreshingly sour and sweet. The Sakura soufflé was dense and good. While the texture of vanilla pudding could be smoother with added compote to intensify the flavors. The colourful mochi could be made chewier too. But on a side note, the hot soba tea with a hint of roasted barley note was quite of nice as an accompaniment of the parfait set.

Quite a perplexed feeling towards Saveur Art's high tea set. I would say they do a better job to their main courses than these dainty items. Among their high tea collections, personal favorites are their sweet stuffs like macaroons and mini lemon tart. Their savory sandwiches fare a little under the weather, with their mini buns been a little too tough to the bite and nothing spectacular in their flavor and taste. But definitely the ambience played a small role in making the penny spent worthwhile.

Delectable 3 tier high tea unveiling a medley of savory and sweet treats accompanied with free flow of coffee/tea and an additional Chef's Specials! Though it may fall on the higher end ($78++ for 2), but each delicate and exquisite pieces of treats and the panoramic view of Singapore is worth each penny spent. Their foie gras xiao long bao, creme brûlée, truffle egg sandwich and shredded crab bruschetta are my favorites for the day!

A tad different from the typical lemon tart with the Yuzu lemon curd a little more tardy and flavor more rich and intense yet not overwhelm with sour-ness. The accompaniment of beautiful ripples of caramelized melted marshmallow has accentuate the overall mouthfeel of this zesty lemon tart. Perfect for your afternoon tea!

Finally get to try the cakes from #kkisweets. Exquisite piece of artwork. Light and fluff mousse filled with traces of champagne with white peaches that bring about a subtle sour-ness to the palette. Real sweet treats here.

Something more traditional with a cup of old school kopi or teh!

Adore this chicky mango tart filled with lychee Mochi, mango mousse with white chocolate coconut creameux fillings and finishes with a touch of mango glaze. The mango mousse portion was a little heavy filled with flavors of mango, whereas the lychee mochi portion was a little chewy and light which balances out the sweetness and flavor.
