I’ve been a bit disappointed that I’ve done so few high teas this year, especially in Japan. Most of my afternoon teas have been overseas lately. I just haven’t gotten around to writing up reviews. I still have a few from a couple of years ago (gasp!) that I need to write about.
On my quest to do high teas around the world, I racked up another one in Indonesia way back in April/May this year during Golden Week. When one thinks of Indonesia, I’m sure one does not associate it with high tea, least of all in the city of Yogyakarta. Stayed one night at a fancy hotel where we didn’t leave it for the duration of our stay. We enjoyed the pool, room service and the afternoon tea spread.
Afternoon tea was at the Phoenix Hotel.
Nice courtyard views:
Nothing more relaxing than afternoon tea.
Fancy sweeteners: an assortment of sugars.
What I liked about this, was that there were two plates of savoury foods:
I loved the food in Indonesia. Up there with Thai food.
Yummy savoury morsels:
Portion servings were perfect.
The perfect scene:
All round a very good afternoon tea especially so by Indonesian standards. Pleasant surrounds, good food and customer service was satisfactory.
