Windsor Arms – High Tea ★★★

Price: $30+

Always been meaning to try high tea and finally got the chance to with a friend recently.

I tried this place through a teambuy coupon and after reading reviews on how they treat people with wagjag, team buy, etc. I felt hesitant to go, one of my major service turn offs is a snooty behavior. However, our server (George? I think that was his name) was super nice and attentive. We went on a weekday at 3:30pm and were situated in the cream room (French style). I think there were only 6 or so tables, so the room wasn’t actually too big. I did feel we were sometimes rushed even though there weren’t a lot of people there. Not sure why they did this.

Now on food, I had the Tibetan tiger tea, something I wanted to try after reading a yelp review. I really liked it, I could smell the scent of chocolate and a bit of nuttiness? My friend had the Darjeeling tea that was a bit too bitter for my tastes but might be a good way to offset all those sweet desserts.

We were given a 3 tier stand filled with desserts, mini sandwiches and scones. Jams, sugar and milk provided. After trying them all, I actually felt almost full. Rare for me with finger food. As we finished with the food stand, we remembered there was another whip cream and strawberries dessert included (internal groan! ugh). I was on sugar overload and found the food was a bit too heavy and sweet for me.

Overall, I feel it’s worth trying out but beware if you can’t eat a lot of sweets. You definitely will feel like you have a toothache after.

Dress code: semi-dressy. For lunches with friends and older relatives.
