If you love a decadent high tea, then you will love this modern twist on a centuries-old tradition thanks to the team at the beautiful Maslow Hotel in Sandton.
Delicious treats have been carefully paired with handpicked specialty teas in a delightful five-stage journey.
In the comfort of cosy arm chairs, overlooking the hotel’s exquisite oasis garden, guests can enjoy a sumptuous five course selection gorgeous treats paired with some of the most perfect teas available in this country.
Each course is paired expertly with an accompanying tea – everything from vanilla bean scones with cape fig jam; cucumber and cottage cheese knots; caramelized tomato and onion quiche with a delicious Rooibos vanilla tea to lemon meringue tartlets, salmon and lemon aioli on brioche, egg mayo and water cress and decadent choux, paired with lemon fresh tea…and the list goes on.
May I suggest not eating all day to prepare yourself for the sumptuous spread that awaits you, and in keeping with the luxuriousness and exclusivity (with a touch of contemporary) for which the Maslow is known, this high tea matches their profile expertly!
“We are inspired by the burgeoning diversity locally produced, specialty teas and how their flavours and aromas can enhance those of food. Tea and cake has been done for years, but now, with the ever widening choice of teas, we can really explore how they can be paired to enhance the experience of taking afternoon tea,” says The Maslow’s Executive Chef, Justin Jonah.
The Maslow’s Pairing High Tea is served every Saturday between 08h00 and 17h00. The cost per adult is R320 and R160 for kids under 12.
