High Tea at the One&Only

Customs of drinking tea originated in England when Catherine of Braganza married Charles II in 1661 and brought the practice of drinking tea in the afternoon with her from Portugal.
Since then this custom travelled all over the world and ladies (and men) from all cultures have been indulging in afternoon teas. The elite however fancied the name "High Tea." High Tea's usually compromised of delicacies which accompanied their tea.
There are many establishments that offer High Tea's in Cape Town. This weekend we decided to dine like the Bourgeoisie and settled for High Tea at the prestigious One&Only Hotel and Spa. For R145 a person you are not only guaranteed a variety of treats but treatment that's usually reserved for the royals.
The selection of treats were endless. Just a few things included:
  • Chocolate Cupcakes
  • Mini Cheesecakes
  • Dark Chocolate Mousse
  • Marble Cake
  • Biscotti
  • Choc Chip Cookies
  • French Nougat
  • Chocolate Toffees
  • Chicken Pies
  • Biltong Quiche
  • Granadilla Tart
  • Caramel Ã‰clairs
  • Fruit Cups
  • Chocolate and Cinnamon Cups
  • Scones
If you feel like spoiling yourself, then why not gather a bunch of ladies and book for a High Tea at the One&Only Hotel in Cape Town.
