Auckland High Tea Experience
New Zealand has always been known for the coffee culture. But recently, the interest in tea is growing, it's not just green and black tea anymore! Iced teas have become the new soft drink. A stroll in your local supermarket will give you rows and rows of different options from rose, citrus, chamomile to my new favourite- feijoa tea.
So it's no surprise that high tea in Auckland has risen in popularity. The best thing is, you don't have to go to some fancy hotel to for a luxury afternoon tea. Many cafes have also picked up on this trend to serve tiered cadies topped with delicate savoury and sweet treats.
The beautiful ritual of high tea lies not just in the food but the beautiful silverware, porcelain tea sets and the luxury soft seats. You have the perfect excuse to don that dress you've hidden in your wardrobe for that unknown occasion.
As an obsessed lover of high tea, I'll bring you the best of high tea in Auckland- there's bound to be one that you'll love!

Classy atmosphere with a range of choices including child-friendly options. There's live music playing in the weekend so it's a must for classical music lovers.

Great value in a great location at Britomart. Relaxed atmosphere with a full bar and other pizza choices so it's safe to go with the blokes!
