Having afternoon tea has always been a delightful thing to do. I simply like the idea of having everything in bite size and my own sweet time to eat all the pastries on tray, with my favourite pot of tea.

As for today, I headed down to Hap Seng Tower to redeem my Afternoon Tea Set voucher (RM 20++) bought from Groupon. I went with a voucher so I am not so sure how much the Afternoon Tea Set originally cost.

The Afternoon Tea Set comes with a 
3-tier of pastries, a pot of tea and a slice of cake from the selection. 

Earl Grey Tea
The tea they used was "Englishman Tea", if I didnt get the name wrong. It has a very aromatic Earl Grey smell but a very peculiar taste indeed. The taste felt like it has more than what an Earl Grey Tea usually has, it has a indifferent refreshing and yet kinda herby taste. Well I dont fancy, but it still nice to drink.

3 tier Afternoon Tea Set.
All the pastries are delicately arrange on the square plates in the 3 tier tray.

The Sandwiches are one of my favourite in the whole Afternoon Tea Set, simply because I am a bread lover ! hhahah.. Well it explains the reason behind my chubby face.

There were two different set of sandwiches which were the Tuna Sandwich and Ham Sandwich. Both were really delish, the bread was toasted to perfection making it crusty on the outside and soft inside.

The chocolate tart was very rich with chocolate that could put you into the thought of being inside a tub of chocolate spread. But not to take too much of it, else it would make it upside down due to the richness of the chocolate.

Oh well, I have to give a thumbs up for the mini egg tart ! It was spectacularly sapid ! The ordinary looking egg tart is not even ordinary when you sink your teeth in it, because they have the soft and warm egg texture on top of the slices of ham lying under it, adding a hint of saltiness to the egg tart, which I LOVE IT ! 

As for the orange flavored scones, it was more to the down hill part due to the crumbly texture of it. A little pressure on it would literally shatter into pieces, and it felt more like a biscuit rather than a scone.

To end the 3 tier Afternoon Tea Set, there were beautiful bite size looking marshmallows, strawberries and lady fingers.

Olive Oil Raspberry Cake with Vanilla Ice-Cream.
Olive Oil Raspberry Cake with Vanilla Ice-Cream.
Initially I find Olive Oil in dessert was quite peculiar so I ordered this, without even imagining how it would be at all. But to my surprise Olive Oil Raspberry Cake was delectable ! It was crusty from the outside and spongy soft in the middle with raspberry sauce that flowing right inside you mouth. Vanilla ice-cream complemented it by making it flow down your throat smoothlyyy. 

This dessert was definitely looking pretty from the outside right into the taste and texture of it !

Breakfast set, RM 12.
If you were to think that the food here is quite pricy then think again cause instead of the Afternoon Tea Set, we had the Breakfast Set which was only RM 12. Well comparatively it was much much much better than Antipoden, the one everyone was fussing about (you can read my review here). The sausage here was unquestionably thick, fat and yummieh !


The place has a very sleek and glossy mood with the black, white and teal color on all the embellishment. From the outside it does feel something like Delicious due to the white and blue-ish color in it, but as you walk into the restaurant, the brown cushioned seating and wooden block on the ceiling, gave a earthy feeling. They have very nice looking candelier hanging on the ceiling to add some yellowish lighting to the place.
