The Best of China: Beijing, Xi’an & Shanghai
High Tea in Singapore isn’t the first thing you think of when you imagine Singapore. However, High Tea seems quite a popular social activity amongst Singaporeans. It is perfect if you are celebrating a special occasion or want to treat a loved one. I was lucky enough to experience High Tea at the Mandarin Oriental and what an experience it was.
High Tea was held in the Axis Bar and Lounge of the Mandarin Oriental, with sweeping views over Marina Bay. This sophisticated lounge is designed in leather, ebony and metal for a relaxing chic feel. To start your High Tea experience, you are presented with quite an extensive tea menu.

Once you have decided on one type of tea to enjoy, you are then brought a selection of sandwiches, scones and sweets to indulge on. My choice out of all of these lovely options of tea was the Emperor Sencha, a classic Japanese Green Tea.

After indulging on every course of the Mandarin Oriental High Tea, I can say that it was absolutely delicious! One of the best High Tea’s I have ever enjoyed. It was surprisingly affordable too, at a price of 42 Singapore Dollars per person, or 80 Singapore Dollars for two people. This price is subject to a 10% service charge and 7% government tax too. However, it is really good value for money and I would highly recommend doing a High Tea in Singapore as an experience.
