Afternoon Tea @ Newens Tea House, Starhill Gallery (review)
Decor wise, Newens Tea House definitely scores high, with Victorian English interior design from the pastries display to the tables. Also having a live harpist wafting sweet music throughout the whole time does make my afternoon tea experience much more fancy and classy.
There are over 60 different kinds of teas to choose from, ranging from the classic English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Black Tea, Green Tea, Jasmine Tea, Vanilla Booibos, Longevity Tea, Rooibos Chocolate Heaven and even Chinese Oolong tea in peach flavour. We went for the classic Earl Grey simply because we love the aromatic flavour of Earl Grey and it goes very well with the pastries and sweets in an afternoon tea set.
- The Original Maids of Honour (RM 60 nett) - 2 Maids of Honour, 2 Freshly Baked Scones & A Pot of Tea
- Cream Tea for Two (RM 60 nett) - 4 Scones & A Pot of Tea
- High Tea for Two (RM 120 nett) - Freshly baked scones, assorted sandwiches, Original Maids of Honour, delicious pastries and Macarons, & A Pot of Tea.
- Oriental Afternoon Tea for Two (RM 120 nett) - Steamed Siew Mai and Har Kau, Fluffy Yam Puff, Spring Roll, Deep Fried Mango Roll and Crispy Bean Curd Skin, Pumpkin Seed Sesame Bean, Lotus Bun and Steamed Custard Bun & A Pot of Tea.
All in all we had a mixed afternoon experience at Newens Tea House, enjoying the High Tea for Two. Some cakes and pastries were a hit whereas others were rather plain
You can opt for the 'Original Maids of Honour' afternoon tea set for half of the price. It may not change you're life but it's worth a try.
