We all know what it’s like, as soon as the festive season is on the horizon, everyone wants to catch up before Christmas. Will it be lunch, dinner or drinks?
Trying to find the time is nigh on impossible. But what about a high tea? It’s a luxurious and indulgent way to meet. Diners can enjoy a festive high tea from every day from 10.30am until 8pm from Monday 21 November until Friday 23 December at The Langham, Melbourne’s much-loved Aria Bar & Lounge.
The Love, Peach and Scones High Tea menu features everyone’s seasonal sweet favourites including a chestnut and chocolate Bouche de Noel, eggnog panna cotta, gingerbread men and women, mint-scented, Christmas tree-shaped meringue and candied fruit tea cake.
The Langham, Melbourne’s famous sandwiches have been given a festive makeover and will be delicate ribbons of smoked salmon, cucumber, horseradish crème fraiche on rye bread, free range smoked ham, tomato chutney and Australian cheddar as well as watercress, tomato and mint pesto and turkey with cranberry relish and thyme.
The gingerbread spice scones and cranberry scones will be served with fresh cream and strawberry jam and the hotel’s acclaimed selection of Wedgwood teas or espresso coffee and a glass of premium sparkling wine.
Sometimes, guests really want to linger for just a bit longer. For an additional $10.00 per person, guests may elect to be served a selection of warm savoury dishes including honey mustard baked ham with crystallized ginger on toasted brioche, poached turkey with morel mushroom, white wine cream sauce and cranberry relish and a demitasse cup of butternut pumpkin soup with Spanish onion, crème fraiche and bacon crumble. This is arguably the best value option ever!
Love, Peace and Scones High Tea is $55.00 per person. $65.00 per person includes warm savoury dishes and $69.00 includes a bottomless glass of free-flowing sparkling wine.
