Arriving at the lobby lounge where high tea is served, we were seated immediately. The staff were very attentive patiently answering our questions in regards to tea selection from an extensive menu.
If you have read my other posts on high tea you would know that when it comes to tea selection I can be hard to please, the Shangri-La didn't disappoint, the selection was extensive. I ordered an Italian almond tea which was delightful.
After all orders of tea were placed, the tiers arrived. Not wanting anyone to miss out I pre organised a selection of pregnancy safe savoury delights for the pregnant ladies of the group. Though not as fancy looking, the selection was still tasty and enjoyable.
For lovers of tradition the scone tier contained two varieties of scone, plain and sultana, accompanied by clotted cream and housemade preserve.
Not so traditional but amazing was the top tier of Anna Polyviou creations. My favourite (pictured) was a sandwich of cream and wafer topped with citrus balls that popped in the mouth. The macaroons and choc orange cake was also nice.
Overall it was a very enjoyable high tea, one which easily sits in my top three.
