The Tea Room QVB - Sydney - Sydney, Australia

The Tea Room QVB

Another birthday celebration calls for another eating out occasion. Yay!

This time we're having high tea. Oh how I love sipping on hot tea and eating fresh scones and petite little desserts. Feel so lady like.My first time coming to a proper high tea place with tiered stands and not the buffet style that I went to last time.

The Tea Room is located within the Queen Victoria Building, Sydney. We take the ancient looking lift up to level 3 and amazingly 6 people actually fit within the small enclosed space.

Upon walking in, the interior feels like I'm in a old English movie. High tea is held in what use to be the original Grand Ballroom.  It is nicely decorated with rustic furniture,  beautiful chandeliers hang on the high ceilings and the white, pastel walls makes it feel so relaxing.

The 'Traditional Afternoon Tea ($43.00 plus $2.00 for tea for connoisseurs)' is our option even though we're here at 11am which is classified as still the morning.  The menu  says it consists of a set selection of finger sandwiches, petit fours, sweet and savoury pastries, scones with preserved and clotted cream with tea or coffee.

My cousin J and I opt for the  connoisseurs team 'Jasmine Pearls' for the extra 2 dollars. It's very fresh and not too strong, just like how we like it. This is refilled many, many, many times. We just love our tea. Cousin W has the 'Cappuccino' which there isn't much to say about it.

I'll let the pictures do the talking as I can't remember much about the names of what I ate. But my favourite was. None of us liked the lavender macaron as it just tasted soapy and unpleasant.

We spent a good few hours there sipping, eating and talking away like how it should be. If only more lunches were like this free from unnecessary gossip and not a care of thought in this world at that point in time.

Then it was time to go as the waiter brought the bill out even without us asking for it as I think we went overtime?
