I have no real reason as to why I have fallen off the planet of the Earth for the last month plus, but when I think back, I also had no time to sit down and do anything for the blog. But alas, I have returned and I am excited to let you all know that I have decided to add in some videos for your enjoyment. Warning: Please be forewarned that I am awkward as this is the first time I am doing these vlog like videos.
Compliments to Ti Amo Partnership for my afternoon champagne high tea for two at the Park Hyatt, I enjoyed a splendid afternoon with my mother and aunty J. We had a quiet corner where we could just enjoy the serenity of the Sydney Harbour as well as allowing us to move about and take as many photos as we would like.
Everything is instantly better when you are greeted with a glass of bubbles, and this glass of Moet did just the job.
I must say, this has been by far the high tea I have enjoyed the most. Everything presented was just so decadent.
The roe added a little interesting pop with the salmon sandwich. The cucumber and green apple slider was a fun touch; there was even a crunch factor from the green apple.
I jump to the scones next, the scones! I don’t even know where to start with this, the exterior holds a nice firm touch, and the insides were soft and fluffy. This is seriously one of the best scones I’ve ever had. I decide to hold off on having my second serve until later.
The cucumber sandwich was light and refreshing. Not usually one that eats tomato by choice unless it has been put in front of me, but the bocconcini and cherry tomato was great compliments with a light touch of basil pesto.
Now the strawberry and rhubarb tart was a very close favourite behind the scones. The soft and light texture worked so well with the tangy subtle sweet flavours, I could have more of this and not even realise what happened. The vanilla choux had detailing to the tee done right. The little detailing on the flowers were such a sweet touch, and made it hard to devour, however when you do eat the thin chocolate, it melts in your mouth easily. These sweet touches are perfect for those who don’t have a sweet tooth.
The slightly heavier desserts, however what has made this high tea even more desirable is the fact that all their sweets are actually not as heavy as you believe. Though the chocolate and peanut tranche looks and sounds completely rich and every bite making us all squirm with sweetness, but it was so light but the peanut flavours was still evident. The a la foile macaron had a citrus touch on the palate, that broke through the usual sweetness you get from a macaron.
I choose to end my experience with a pot of coquelicot gourmand tea, with subtle hints of poppy, biscuit and almond paste. The flavours were all soft and light on the palate but it was just the perfect way to end a splendid afternoon.
Have you been the to the Park Hyatt and where is your favourite high tea?
Watch my experience below, however a newb as I am – I forgot to check for battery levels. So I could only sneak in the snippets of food rather than my eating.
