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.

Tablescapesg Afternoon Tea Set is refreshed with a new look and new items! Just look at the medley of sweets and savoury bites displayed, I couldn’t decide which one to start with.

Picking off some of the new savoury canapés:

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
