I’ve tried a few tea
places during my absence on blogger and the first one I want to share is the afternoon tea at Bacchus
in the Wedgewood Hotel
. They only offer afternoon tea on the weekends
and it was rare for me to be here on a weekend, since Im usually up in the interiors
, so I took advantage of my freedom
and had tea here the day after my final =) Remember to ask for a window
seat when you make reservations!
I completely forgot to take a photo of the restaurant itself, sorry! ><
~ The three tiers ~
When I was taking this photo I thought it looked funny and I realized it was because the size of the plates do not differ that much from one another, so it looks like just three plates of the same size at different levels lol.
~ Finger Sandwiches ~
The presentation is a bit plain here but the quality is a bit better than the other places I’ve tried. There were no surprises and the sandwiches were the normal selection you receive at any other tea place. Cucumber, chicken, shrimp, salmon rolls and tandoori chicken.
~ Sweets ~
The sweets there were very nice, not too sweet in fact. There were lemon chiffon with white chocolate ganache (my friend said it tasted like lemon meringue), English fruit cake, fruit tart and a mini bakewell tart.
~ Scones ~
Scones were served with chocolate eclairs! The scones had raisins in them and were just okay…..and the elairs tasted like the regular frozen ones from the supermarket….sooo disappointed!
~ Tea and rock sugar ~
The tea was served in a tea press with rock sugar. I personally don’t like rock sugar too much because it takes longer to melt in your tea and when the tea is luke warm, it doesn’t melt at all! Not to mention, we didn’t know how these tea presses worked and my friend pressed her tea so low that her tea became too bitter lol
Well that’s all for now, Im still studying for my two other exams so I probably won’t be updating for the next little while again =(
Thank you so much to those who wished me luck on my exams and leaving me comments!
Till next time ~
