There are a good numbers of afternoon tea place selections around the capital, but some are better than others with a selection of finger sandwiches, delicate pastries and scones with clotted cream, all gracing a grand tea stand complemented with good tea leaves and doses of caffeine.
Which would be your favourite Hi-Tea spot in KL so far?
I personally love hi-tea but have to slow down on this adventure as I can’t really have tea / coffee now. Need to go easy on caffeine, and also cut down on sweets. Catching back up on the delightful afternoon tea session, we decided to head over to Mandarin Oriental for an afternoon indulgence at their Lounge on the Park. Having seen that floor to ceiling glass windows and plush sofas scattered with cushions, Lounge on the Park showcases a seductive mix of Chinese heritage and classic style.
However, when we were supposed to be seated on those classy plush sofas at Lounge on the Park, it was totally full when we reached! On a weekday. Great. Very crowded and even if we got ourselves a seat, it would be among the crowds 🙁
Lucky us, the friendly staff assured us comfy seats inside one of their restaurant, Mosaic. So it wasn’t exactly Afternoon Tea @ Lounge on the Park anymore. More like Hi-Tea @ Mosaic 🙂
Love their arrangement as we were seated beside the huge window overlooking the KLCC Park. Best of all, it was not crowded. So much privacy.
Back to MO’s afternoon tea, their menu menu features 60 premium teas as well as cocktails, juices and coffees. We went for their English Afternoon Tea that features delicate finger sandwiches, warm scones served with jam, clotted cream and orange marmalade, and a platter of miniature cakes, tartlets and chocolates. Their spherical desserts and savouries stand also looks cute and oriental, with sweets on top & bottom, savouries arranged on the middle tier.
Heard they also usually have the Oriental Tea Set consisting more of dim sums but it was not available that day.
English Afternoon Tea
2pm – 6pm
RM78++ per tea set
Love their spreads! Strawberry jam, rich clotted cream, lemon butter and orange marmalade.
Chris is not really a huge fan of tea, so coffee is a must! Latte please 🙂 And hot chocolate for myself since I can’t take tea 🙁 However, the coffee was quite a disappointment. We suggest that you stick to their tea.
We actually had 2 tea sets but two persons could actually share one.
Ours was complimentary as we went there with the Mandarin Oriental The Club Privilege Card & complimentary voucher 🙂 Happee!
Soaking up the unique ambiance and lavish décor while enjoying our Afternoon Tea for Two.
