High Tea II: Wentworth Sofitel Hotel, Sydney

As a huge drinker of tea, there is no finer way to enjoy tea that an afternoon with scones, pastries and sandwiches. On my visit back to Sydney last month, I went to yet another High Tea establishment. There are only a handful in Sydney that offer it. This time I went to the Wentworth Sofitel Hotel, Sydney which does a modern take on High Tea as opposed to ye olde English feel. The food here was amazing and totally kicked ass over the QVB’s Tea Room. The food was exquisitely presented and tasted divine. The sweets selection was very decadent, too rich. There was chocolate gateau, macarondades, financier, cheesecake, gateau opera, lemon curd tart and framboisier. Of course, there were baked scones with strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream. But the highlight would have to be the savoury treats. They were amazing. There was mini quiche lorraine, and gourmet finger sandwiches with fillings such as chicken and mayonnaise; cucumber, dill and mayonnaise, but my two favourite were the smoken salmon on brioche, and the brie cheese and quince on baguette. For a truly relaxing afternoon that will delight the senses I would highly recommend the Wentworth Afternoon Tea. Top points for food quality and taste, although the QVB excelled in service.
