Since La Promise introduced the very first English Afternoon Tea in Taiping, I've always wanted to treat myself to this delightful afternoon tea. English afternoon tea was first made fashionable by Queen Victoria back in the 19th century (please correct me if I'm wrong). However, getting the right person to share such elegant tea experience with seems to be a challenging task. First, this person must have an afternoon to spare. Second, he or she must have a palate for dessert. I am very lucky as Ming shares my passion on tea time treat so I invited her to this delightful meal that would give us the feeling of true indulgence.
There is a selection of several types of tea but we requested for coffee as both of us do not really fancy tea.
Our English Tea is served on a two-tier cake tray laden with dainty, bite-sized cakes, pastries and elegant finger sandwiches.
We got two types of sandwiches: tuna and egg.
There are two types of pastries: Fruit Tarts and Lemon Meringue Pies
(Clockwise from top: Blueberry cake with white chocolate shavings, Apricot Muffin, Chocolate Chip Muffin, Black Forest with chocolate shavings, Blueberry cheesecake and Raspberry cheesecake)
The afternoon tea is served daily from 2.30 - 5.00 p.m.
The entire tea experience costs RM19.90 for two persons.
