High Tea at the Cape Grace Hotel, Cape Town

Recently, I’ve entered the world of high teas. And how marvellous it is! My first experience was at the Mount Nelson, which was absolutely delectable. I then attended the afternoon tea at the Cape Grace Hotel in the V&A Waterfront. It is absolutely fit for a Queen.

Served daily from 12h00 to 18h00 in the stylishly comfortable Library, the choice of several varieties of loose-leaf tea combined with some intricately prepared treats, makes for an awesome afternoon. This also makes for a fantastic venue for Bridal or Baby showers.

First on offer is the Cream Tea. For R65 you’ll get home-made scones, strawberry jam and cream served with either loose-leaf tea or coffee.

Then, presented in gorgeous tiers is the Afternoon Tea. For R80 you’ll receive freshly baked traditional and savoury scones, a selection of beautifully cut finger sandwiches and irresistible sweet treats served with either loose-leaf tea or coffee.

The Afternoon Tea is also available with the added luxury of a glass of sparkling wine, that is the Deluxe Afternoon Tea, which is served at R125 per person. I had this one! A fabulous mix of sweet and savoury snacks.

Lastly, for the not-so-hungry, you’ll pay R40 for a slice of home-made cake.

With a choice of Black, White, Green and Herbal teas, there is something for every palate. And of course pure Highland Rooibos, grown wild on the high altitude Cederberg Mountains – also known as the Red Gold of South Africa, is available as one of the healthy caffeine-free herbal options.
