Indulge in a sophisticated afternoon high tea at The Westin Melbourne. Treat your taste buds to a luxurious, three-tier offering of caviar, cheese and chocolate. This decadent experience will be packed with theatrics, frivolity and flavour, in the glamourous Lobby Lounge of the hotel. High SocieTea is available for a limited time only, from August 12 to October 13.
High SocieTea at The Westin Melbourne
Your high tea journey begins with a cloud of smoke, and a delicate glass box. Inside, you’ll find in house-cured king salmon, steeped in juniper and champagne. This is served with wild scampi caviar in a handmade charcoal tart. Of course, it’s not a high tea without some scones. Well, how about an Oscietra Caviar, mauri mascarpone and Brillat Savarin cheese scone, topped with a 12-carot gold leaf?
After that, enjoy a slow baked Le Conquerant camembert. This is sprinkled with a hint of lemon thyme and truffles. Nibble on a Nduja salami and Mauri taleggio cream-filled Berliner with bacon dust. Then, try 12-hour braised pulled lamb shoulder from the Murray region, served over milk buns and topped with cheese.
End your journey with a black forest cookie gateaux, with a soft-centred filling. There’s also a warm chocolate tart with burnt marshmallow and whisky anglaise, as well as Valrhona Amatika bark with raspberry and Olsson’s red gum salt.
Pair your treats with premium wines from the Yarra Valley, a glass of champagne or your favourite cocktail.
“The High SocieTea menu brings together my love for pairing luxe ingredients with locally sourced produce and a passion for thinking outside the square,” said Executive Chef Apoorva Kunte. “The lavish combination of caviar, cheese and single-origin chocolate carefully curated into a unique high tea experience is rare and I’m excited to present this in the unparalleled 5-star setting of The Westin Melbourne.”
This decadent high tea will be available to try every day, from 4pm to 8pm. It will set you back $110 per person.
