The Lounge’s Sumptuous Spring Teaon October 20, 2011
Spring has always been the time of year to indulge in food and drink as the seasons’ cycle is reborn. In the spirit of spring, The Table Bay Hotel has refreshed its famous Afternoon High Tea offering, making it more tantalising than ever before. Under the watchful eye of new Assistant Pastry Chef, Anita van Tonder, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the extensive array of gourmet confectionaries and designer teas.
Anita’s unique ability to match immaculately crafted pastries and cakes with the ideal accompanying teas is what makes The Table Bay’s Afternoon High Tea so special. Veteran tea drinkers and uninitiated alike will be wowed by the exotic blends and how they enhance already delicious baked offerings. From the perfect cup of Darjeeling Earl Grey to a luxurious caramel cream-infused black tea blend, there is a new taste experience for everyone.
High Tea Treats
Of course, while a taste for unusual teas is part of what makes Afternoon High Tea so special, Anita’s stock-in-trade is producing sensational confectionaries. Afternoon High Tea is a pastry-lover’s paradise, with an unmatched selection of baked treats to warm hearts along with the warmer weather. Rich layered cakes covered in Belgium chocolate ganache, creamy custard slices, fresh fruit tartlets, miniature berry pavlovas, apricot frangipane tarts and awe-inspiring Austrian Sachertorte form just part of the unbelievable Afternoon High Tea spread.
You’ll even get a little taste of High Tea to take home with you, with all guests being provided with an old fashioned goodie-bag, filled with home-style delights. Homemade coconut ice, fudge, marshmallow and biscuits will all rekindle fond memories of childhood birthday parties.
The Best Seat in Town
You might be thinking than The Table Bay’s Afternoon High Tea couldn’t possibly get any better. You’d be mistaken. High Tea is hosted at The Lounge – a venue which offers one of the most scenic dining experiences in all of Cape Town. You’ll experience unmatched tea-time opulence in the heart of The Mother City, enjoying views of Cape Town Harbour, Table Mountain and the cityscape from The Lounge’s lofty, open-truss perch.
