On Thursday right before going to the Totoro exhibition in Harbour City, Connie and I went for high tea at the Sheraton Hotel, in Tsim Sha Tsui. The Sky Lounge on the 18th floor has spectacular harbour views, and it's a nice place for either afternoon tea or night drinks. The high tea sets are individual, which I had never seen in any other venue. It's quite nice actually, since it spares you from having to be cutting the petit fours to share. I mentioned several times how I prefer the afternoon tea sets which have double of everything because I really don't feel like cutting the food to share! Their tea selection was not good, just the regular tea bags (English breakfast, Earl Grey, Peppermint, etc.). Alternatively you can drink juice or coffee.
The food was quite good, and the macaron was particularly outstanding! I loved the carrot cake, too. I might have preferred two scones per person instead of one since it's my favorite part from afternoon tea, but I was really full by the end of the whole thing, so I guess one is just fine.
This is not one of the best afternoon tea sets in town, but it's worth giving it a try if you're a high tea junkie like me!
