Sydney, Intercontinental Afternoon Tea

Another day in Sydney, another afternoon tea.
I was back home in Sydney last year for a week, from a Saturday to a Friday. During that week, I did 5 afternoon teas. Wow. 5 afternoon teas in a space of 7 days. That’s a lot now that I write that out. What can I say, this hobby is a health hazard. If only I could find someone to pay me to eat all these scones and drink tea!

Here is the third afternoon tea I did in Sydney with my younger brother. Actually, he came along and just watched me eat afternoon tea whilst he drank apple cider. My brother watches what he eats. I should do the same. I see it and I eat.

Too lazy for words, so it will be mostly pics.

Went the champagne option, of course:

I just realised it would probably be a good idea to mention the venue: The Intercontinental Hotel, Sydney, on a Wednesday afternoon. It was in their lobby lounge, which had a very businessy-suit vibe to the place.

The afternoon tea offering is minimalist (not so hearty) and modern, and served on a circular tier.

Food was good. Not spectacular. The single scone was disappointing.

The savoury treats were the best thing about this place. Desserts were ok. And scone was very disappointing. Service not so great. Not the best afternoon tea venue in terms of ambience either. A shame really. I had high hopes for this place. Definitely has potential.
