High Tea With a Twist

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!

如果你看到我Instagram上的照片,您可能还记得上周末我在Abbotsford修道院品尝了好几道美味佳肴。我非常荣欣能与丈夫和博友朋友们参加Bursaria的下午茶。我参加过许多下午茶(请看[这里],[这里]和[这里]),但Bursaria的下午茶是我品尝过最棒的菜单。我十分爱吃甜食,但Bursaria的下午茶先用咸味的点心招待我们。更健康吧。每一口是如此的够味,我甚至可以跳过甜食,但我迷恋甜食的欲望是挺难克服的。接下来,每一份甜品一样的精心设计,等待它们是值得的。

Abbotsford修道院美极了。如果你在寻找婚宴场所,我推荐这里。丈夫甚至提出如也许我们的10年结婚纪念日,或我们的合并30生日会,或宝宝满月可以在这里举办?我一边回味着可爱粉红色波斯肉松的甜点一边听着深情的歌声,我只有一个希望:我们能起来跳舞…
星期三快乐!如果你想带你的亲朋好友来参加Bursaria的下午茶,请在这里预订,只剩下三个星期了!

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.
