Yes! Quite a lot but then I'm English :)
My brother and sister-in-law had High Tea at a very posh London hotel for their wedding reception. That was wonderful and made a change from the usual style of reception.
I went to a wedding that did the very same thing, and it was the BEST.
I can fully say, it is nicer than a sit down full courses.
You have a chance to try something here and there, keep it fun.
You also do fill up quickly, and not on huge amounts of food.
I think there is a lot to say about eating small, but enough.
It is also a wonderful way I know people are getting together.Plus it really is a easy way to entertain, and can look amazing.
Makes me want to throw one.
The other thing is, you can have one to raise money for a charity, or for someone in need its a way to give a blessing.
The application is endless, esp when women get together!
LOVE iT :)
High Tea is one of the most gorgeous treats which we can have the pleasure to enjoy! A lovely historical hotel just out of Ingham in Nth Qld had its fabulous dining room restored purely for the purpose of serving High Tea for both locals and tourists. The assortment of refreshing tea blends accompanied by the most exquisite Petit Fours and crust-less sandwiches served in the traditional manner could convert anyone formerly ignorant of such delights ,to want to experience the whole concept of High Tea on a regular basis! Just too wonderful to fully describe!!!
I've had afternoon tea at cafes and hotel restaurants, and have enjoyed all of them. So far I have never been disappointed with the scones or sandwiches, but the cakes tend to be a mixed bag. Some I like while others aren't that great.
Yeeessirrreee!! I had a high tea when visiting Melbourne with a friend. We went to The Windsor & were treated like royalty, LOL. Champagne, chandeliers, finger sandwiches & the yummiest selection of cakes & pastries ever! Memories, sigh......
I have attended many. One of the best which i still remember fondly was at Lachlans in Parramatta. It was an intimate affair in one of the smaller rooms. Food was in abundance and the staff were exceptional.. an experience worth repeating! http://www.lachlans.com.au/
Yes. It was nice enough, but from this bloke's perspective, over-rated and over-priced for a few cakes and a cuppa. My wife doesn't really think much of them either - for the same reason. We're probably a bit of a weird couple though :-)
I love them! My husband & I had a 2 for 1 deal in a cafe once, then he found another 2 for i deal at a top Sydney hotel, in Market street, up on the 7th floor. We sat by the window, so it was nkvd looking down onto the street below. I was also taken to 1 at the beautiful Carmella Gardens, in the Sutherland Shire, when I left my volunteer job, after 22 years & 2 months, to the day!! I have a friend who must have been to every high tea, with her girlfriends, in Sydney! Sheís also been to 1 or 2 in Melbourne! I just love them. It makes me feel like Iím in another world!Thereís always been enough to eat as well.
