High Tea With a Twist

by cecylia on August 21, 2013

If you follow me on Instagram, you may recall last weekend I indulged in just a few *cough cough* delectable delights at the Abbotsford Convent. I had the utmost pleasure of attending the A Touch of Bursaria High Tea with hubby and blogger friends. I am not being paid to say this. But out of all the high teas I’ve attended (and there’s been quite a few, see [HERE], [HERE] and [HERE], as well as numerous undocumented ones), the Bursaria high tea boasted one of the best menus I’ve ever tasted. I loved that the savoury pieces were served first. Not only were they intricately prepared, each succulent bite-sized piece was so flavoursome I could have skipped the sweets selection if it weren’t for my obsessive sweet tooth. But of course, the dessert platter was just as well-designed and the wait was worth it. I think I ate more of the saccharine bites than the rest of the table combined…DSC00074 DSC00093DSC00065 DSC00070DSC00062 DSC00076 DSC00087 DSC00090 DSC00098

The venue at Abbotsford Convent would be divine for a wedding reception. Hubby even suggested that if we should have a function there in the future. Perhaps our 10 year wedding anniversary, our combined 30th, or the baby shower? As I savoured the cute meringue topped with pink Persian floss and listened to the soulful singer crooning away, I only had one wish: that we could all get up and dance the afternoon way…

Happy Wednesday lovelies!

Afternoon tea is one of my favourite occupations and this one looks delightful. It’s all beautifully presented and those meringues look so dainty and delicious too.

I know right! there’s nothing more relaxing and more feminine than afternoon tea!
