Living A Tai Tai life: Afternoon Tea Indulgence

Weekends or weekdays, the idea of indulging in a leisure high-tea buffets has long been associated as being a Tai Tai. But it doesn’t mean you have to break a bank just to indulge in them either.

We decided to go for an afternoon tea within the garden oasis @parkroyalcollectionmarinabay on New Year’s Day! A good choice since it was pouring.

Served in a picnic basket, the canapés and sweets are inspired by nature. Aside from the items in the basket, there are waffles with banana compote and ice cream in a white chocolate globe. But food was average and I expected more from a hotel.

Sadly the @twgteaofficial tea selection here is limited to classic options like English Breakfast or Chamomile.

• Forest Mushroom and Chicken Fricassee with Herb Crumbs
• Chocolate Mousse Dome with Raspberry
• Edible Flower Pot with Oreo Crumble

P.S: Bird Cage Pavilion High Tea set is only applicable with their Garden Escapade Room Package.

Afternoon Tea Hours:
Daily 3pm - 5:30pm

$38++ per person with free-flow coffee/tea

Had an amazing English high tea with friends at SKAI Bar, located on the 70th floor of @swissotelthestamford

The newly launched afternoon tea set, served on an exquisite floral tier tray, has an interesting spread of sweets and savoury items. Think along Maitake Truffle on Flatbread, Foie Gras Polo Bun, Candied Black Bean Sesame, Matcha Tea Mascarpone and Cocoa Bean Ruby Chantily. It is on the pricier end but for the view and the spread, I think it’s quite worthwhile.

Afternoon Tea Hours:
Sunday to Friday 3pm - 5pm

$60++ per person

Five-course afternoon tea!? Yes that’s right!Different from the quintessential European style, @capitolkempinski afternoon tea comes with @twgteaofficial tea pairing at each course to bring out the best flavours.

Shown is the second course which consist of bite-sized savoury snacks such as prawn salad and smoked salmon, potato egg mayo on brioche bun and tuna mayonnaise croissant.

In light of the current situation, most places aren’t offering afternoon tea buffet. That’s the same for Brasserie Les Saveurs @stregissg. Now they have beautifully crafted dessert served on a two-tier silver stand along with a platter of classic sandwiches and a bowl of fresh bakes.

Highlights include:
• Truffle Egg Mayonnaise with cucumber on a brioche
• Turkey Ham and Cheese Buckwheat Crêpes prepared à la minute
• Raspberry and Pistachio Financier
• Hazelnut and Milk Chocolate Tartlet

If you like something exclusive, try the unique St. Regis Singapore Tea Blend by @twgteaofficial. A combination of green and black tea with malty white chocolate and nuts notes but a quiet floral aftertaste.
