Superior sweet High Tea @ Four Seasons, Central, Hong Kong

I have always enjoyed going to High Tea, either with the girls or with Hubby (He won’t admit it but I know he enjoys High Tea also!). We were keen to try the High Tea at the Peninsula, but when we got there at about 2.30pm, there was an incredibly long line that didn’t seem to be moving at all! We waited for a good 25 mins, to see whether or not the line would move but alas… it did not move at all, and by this stage, Hubby was getting a little impatience and suggested we go somewhere else! Thankfully, I had a back-up plan, which was the Four Seasons!

There were no queues at the Four Season, which was a bonus and the fact that it was Fathers day, they also had dessert buffet, which means MORE sweets!

Our set took a while to come, so we started with the buffet of sweets. My plate consisted of the berries and port trifle, raspberry floating island, chocolate orange square tart, black forest cake and raspberry sponge cake. I loved the black forest cake, it was incredibly moist. The berries and port trifle was also delightful. I thought the chocolate orange square tart was a little too sweet for my liking.

The traditional tiramisu with crystalised orange zest was served in a martini glass. It was incredibly sweet but incredibly delicious! Hubby ate two of this and I am sure he could have eaten more! He absolutely loved it!

I have yet to finish my desserts, and Hubby stood up to get more – berries and port trifle, tiramisu with crstalised orange zest, vanilla panna cotta with balsamic strawberries and raspberry floating islands. His favourites were the vanilla panna cotta with balsamic strawberries and the tiramisu. I am not a huge fan of panna cotta so did not have any of this.

Finally – our towering of savoury and sweets goodness arrived. The bottom tier consisted of ham sandwich, salmon sandwich, cucumber and cheese sandwich, prosciutto bruschetta , eggplant with potato salad, mini egg salad sandwiches and quiche lorraine.

I absolutely loved the mini egg salad sandwiches and the eggplant with potato salad.

The middle tier, scones – lemon scones and sultana scones. The scones were a little hard for my liking and way way WAY too sweet! It was warm, but when served with jam and cream, I could feel my sugar levels rising. It was definitely way too sweet!

I don’t think we even made a dent on the top tier – macaroons, brioche, blueberry cheese cake and mango pudding in shot glasses. I had some of the blueberry cheese cake and some of the mango pudding and that was it. I was stuffed!

We sat there for another hour, thinking that we could potentially eat the rest of it, alas no… I completely over dozed on sugar and was seriously full. It was good sitting there talking to Hubby. We have had a busy week of football world cup and visitors that we haven’t had the chance to sit and talk.

Personally, I thought the high tea at Four Seasons was way too sweet, especially the scones! It filled you up  too quickly. I think the fact that we started on the buffet of sweets prior to eating the savoury also made us full. This is great for those who have a superior sweet tooth!
