Hello again my high tea lovers,
Hungry everyone? I am VERY…:)
- How are you going to spend your Father’s Day on Sunday June 17, 2012?
- Looking for a special way to celebrate Father’s day with your beloved ones?
Instead of giving your dad a
Starbucks Gift Card or #1 Dad mugs, I recommend – bringing your dad for a traditional high tea experience.
I TRIED before and He LOVED it.
Honestly, out of many English traditions, I like the high tea tradition the most. It should definitely be more common in Toronto, and more hotels should offer high teas. I swear there is a large demand for it in Toronto because it allows people to sleep in and still be able to enjoy a late “afternoon tea”.
People should also be excited about it. I mean nibbling a cup of fruity or herbal flavour hot tea, and tasting a collections of sandwiches and desserts for a lazy late afternoon sounds good right?
I know it does, and it is.
Reasons to go for an afternoon tea experience on Father’s day?
1) Your parents will pay
2) Teas… more teas…. and even more teas
3) Unforgettable memories
4) Sandwiches… more sandwiches… and even more sandwiches
5) Surprise your dad
6) Desserts… more desserts… and even more desserts
Mum and I took dad a couple years ago for high tea during Father’s day and he was so excited. It had been a long time since he had tried high tea. I took him to high tea because it is an event that the whole family can participate in. Even my little cousins can as well enjoy the food, especially the desserts.
So if you are thinking of booking for high tea in Toronto on Father’s day, I suggest that you pick up your phone and make reservations to one of the places I’ve listed below. There is a high demand for afternoon tea in Toronto but not so many hotel offer high tea…
so call NOW!
Here are a few places that I would like to recommend (click the links for a full review):
Windsor Arms has the most traditional menu after the Royal York Hotel, however it is easier to make reservation here because they offer high tea everyday. Hands down for all scone lovers because they serve the best scones here! It is not too sweet, not too dry, not too crispy and not too dense. I highly recommend Tibetan Tiger tea – sweet, and creamy but taste the best along with the scones and strawberry jam and Devonian cream.
Nom… Nom… Nom…
MoRoCo high tea is one of those divine experiences to share with close friends and relatives, especially for those who have children in their family because they offer a tea menu for kids. So no worries that your princess and prince will complain ( Trust me! they will enjoy themselves). It is definitely a location to host small tea parties. And a great place for chocolates lovers. The prices here are also reasonable.
Nom… Nom… Nom…
High tea is served in the library bar of the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. The hardest place to book for a table (even just a table for 2); this is because they only offer high teas during the weekends. This place serves the most traditional high tea in town, ever since 1929. Their sandwiches are the best. The sandwiches include: lobster and mango salad with tomato Carpaccio, celery cress and saffron brandy aioli, smoked salmon with caviar and turkey breast.
Nom… Nom… Nom…
P.S This is the only place that offer Don Perignon champagne upon request
(extra cost applicable)
4) The King Edward Hotel Toronto
The King Edward Hotel also serves high tea on the weekends, and a very Canadian –British style high tea experience. They offer a selection of high tea options, such as: Asian Bento Box tea where pastries are replaced with dim sum, Traditional King’s Tea (picture above) and Savoury Tea, with miniature pastries are served.
So let’s take our dad to an exciting and unforgettable afternoon tea experience!
