Served in a white elegant drawer, the set contained an assortment of sweet pastries and desserts, savoury delights, 2 types of scones, 3 types of spread and 2 types of cookies. A special mention on the scones that were buttery and crumbly with a fluffy interior. They were simply amazing (best I had in SG), and I would recommend to pair them with either the raspberry jam or the refreshing homemade lemon curd. To whet your appetite and for a relaxing (and finer) afternoon, the set comes with your choice of appetiser and your choice of TWG tea.

A high tea set for 2pax, this three tiered afternoon tea set was scrumptious aa it served up an array of scrumptious dim sum creations. Hit favourites for me were the dark chocolate ice cream (rich and delicious) and fried carrot cake with XO sauce (crispy, pillowy with a kick of spiciness). Worth it!

A time-limited high tea set comprising of sweets and savouries served in an open-faced bird cage and placed on a bed of "grass". The set came with a refillable pot of artisan tea of choice, of which we had the lychee oolong that was fragrant and refreshing.

Key highlights for me were:
- Truffle Ham & Cheese Croissant was flaky, buttery and cheesy all in one.
- Shot glass of tiramisu was creamy and lightly sweetened, with enough kahlua and espresso to taste and topped with choco bits.
- Cranberry Scone with Mascarpone Cheese & Apricot Jam was incredibly good that we ordered extras. Crumbly, buttery, moist and light, this British treat was a perfect pairing with the spread.

At $38/person (minimum two to dine), you will get to experience a classic afternoon tea. The set came with buttermilk raisin and plain scones served with jam and clotted cream, an assortment of sandwiches and French desserts. Sad to say, it was an utter disappointment. The scones were dense and hard, and the sandwiches were plain and average. The only thing worth it were the sweets and choice of TWG tea (Bourbon Vanilla my choice pick).

Food is an adventure in itself. More to explore. Even more to share.
