MORE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCESpring High Tea at Swissotel Sydney is exactly what high tea should be: somehow frivolous and lighthearted while maintaining a sumptuous splendour. Relaxing and indulgent, it falls somewhere between a playful treat and full-on decadence.
The Crossroads Bar boasts a soaring ceiling and plush décor, giving it an air of modern sophistication that, along with the buzz of light chatter and soft music, create an alluring ambience.
Truly a feast for the senses, the affair starts with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and a selection of aromatic loose-leaf tea or rich hot coffee. On weekdays, as you sip your drink, you’ll experience a traditional high tea service, with a gorgeous three-tiered stand laced with classic sweets, like scones and pastries, and scrumptious savoury sandwiches. This classic approach is ultra-chic, offering you and your guest a perfectly relaxing time.
On weekends, you’ll find an extensive buffet instead, littered with a mouthwatering array of savoury delights, like BBQ pork pastries with sesame and BBQ chicken pies, as well as tempting sweet treats like Chinese coconut tartlets and an assortment of cooling Italian gelato flavours. Not to mention the impressive, and totally decadent, Lindt chocolate fountain.
Whichever your approach, you’ll find that Swissotel Sydney does it flawlessly – making sure that your experience is simultaneously elegant, relaxed, decadent, playful and sophisticated. learn more
