I know just the right place to treat myself to a delightful afternoon tea, - first made fashionable by the 7th Duchess of Bedford, Anna back in the 19th century - Eastern and Oriental Hotel's fine dining restaurant, The 1885.
Be swept away by the classy, elegant interior of The 1885.
The most coveted seats in the restaurant are the two tables by the French windows,
overlooking the Straits of Malacca.
Simple yet elegant setting
Huge trays laden with dainty, bite-sized cakes and pastries
Cutlery made of silver
A feeling of true indulgence
My choice of tea: Creme Orange Roibosh Tea
Sugar bowl and milk jar made of fine bone china
Very fragrant tea with a hint of sweetness
The entire tea experience costs RM45 ++
Treat yourself to a typical English Afternoon Tea served on silver and fine bone china.

delightful pastries and elegant finger sandwiches.

This is the best afternoon tea I've ever had in Malaysia. The delightful and dainty-looking pastries are all made to perfection. The entire tea experience left me with a feeling of true indulgence and I will surely return for another luxurious treat. It is an experience I am not likely to forget.
