In 1953, New Zealand mountaineer extraordinaire Sir Edmund Hilary climbed to the summit of Mount Everest with a canister containing his favourite brew, a couple of cucumber sandwiches and a scone with jam and cream. Why? He was a big fan of high tea. Like, a really big fan.
Grab $49, you best pal, and prepare to enjoy an exquisite High Tea for two at Stamford Plaza Melbourne. Enjoy a glass of Moët & Chandon Champagne each and a delectable seasonal assortment of savoury sandwiches, fluffy homemade scones with jam and cream, tantalising sweet petit fours and cakes. Feast your eyes on the following (although, if you're at the office I must warn you in advance - drooling at your desk is not a good look).
Three varieties of Finger Sandwiches - cucumber, egg and salmon
High Tea will be served Sundays from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon with one of your nearest and dearest. For more information about Stamford Plaza Melbourne's High Tea, click here.
The history of afternoon tea (also known as high tea) can be traced back to England in the early nineteenth century, made popular by the Duchess of Bedford. Stamford Plaza Melbourne's High Tea pays tribute to the elegance of a traditional English afternoon tea, with an indulgent, modern twist. So sit back, relax and enjoy yourself while the friendly team take care of the rest.
