high tea @ t2 teahouse, mac centre

It's suiting and it makes sense; yay to the fact that T2 are serving up High Tea at their teahouse in Mac Centre! J&I had seen it whilst walking past the shop 2 weeks ago and finally got round to trying it last weekend. It's $30 for 2, you get 2 pots of tea (your choice from the range on their menu) and there's a 3 tiered cake stand (comprising scones with cream & jam; nougat, cupcake, lemon meringue tart, macaroons, finger sandwiches and mini quiches.)

J scowls at the flower tea cup he gets with his pot of Lemongrass & Ginger Tea.
J relaxing in their oversized armchairs (you end up getting so comfortable in them you don't want to move).
The cake stand devoured from the bottom plate (savouries), scones (top plate) and finally all the sweets (on the middle plate).I already have a T2 tin at home but I went for a pot of English Breakfast tea - just love it!
In summary: the tea is fantastic (I don't think you can go wrong), sandwiches/scones/quiches/macaroons have my thumbs up, the lemon meringue tart in my opinion is a bit too big as are the nougat pieces and well, the cupcake (whilst pretty) was quite terrible (dry and crumby). I'm still in love with the interior of the shop, love all the colours, the seating, the lighting (you forget that you're sitting inside a shopping centre until you look back out the door.) High tea is definitely one of my favourite pastimes for a weekend!

panda said...

I've walked past this place so many times but have yet to try it! High Tea there sounds tempting. At least it's cheaper and you don't have to drive as far to get to The Tea Room or The Victoria Room!

Btw I've tagged you for a meme. Check my blog for details. You can participate if you want to :)

karen - agree with you completely about this place being closer and cheaper than all the other high tea places. when you go, let me know what you think!

otherwise, just popped by your blog - glad to meet another fellow foodie! and yep, the meme is on my list of to do!
