The British Tradition of High Tea began in the mid-1700s as an afternoon meal usually served between 3 and 4 o’clock. Cakes, scones and sandwiches would be served as a light meal before attending the theatre or playing cards.
Today, the practice of serving High Tea continues with the modern ‘Lady of Leisure’ enjoying a high tea at bridal and baby shower, gathering with best friends to celebrate a hens party or birthday party and sampling delicious cakes and pastries.
At The Riverview Hotel in Balmain, we are offering a high tea menu that is keeping up with the traditional staples but also has a few little twists and turns to keep things fresh and interesting.
