I find during a rainy winter afternoon, there's nothing better than spending time indoors, enjoying a leisurely afternoon tea. The Bar Lobby and Lounge at The Westin has a Mad Hatter High tea which looks rather adorable.
"The Mad Hatter is having afternoon tea
We welcome you to share in his glee
A curious menu, under our clock chime
From noon to 6 daily, do be on time"
A girlfriend and I opt for the Mad Tea Party comes with a choice of tea or coffee. There's also the sparkling or cocktail options too.
The savoury tier consists of the following:
Tweedledee & Tweedledum; roasted beef and fresh asparagus roulade on mini laugen
Caterpillar; cherry bocconcini & tomato on fresh green salad boat
Alice in Wonderland; Alaskan crabmeat salad on double bread wrapped in cucumber
I love the different savoury options; a nice twist on the usual traditional finger sandwiches.
The sweet selection looks impressive and fits with the Alice in Wonderland theme perfectly!
The Mad Hatter’s Hat; rich dark chocolate mud cake encased in chocolate icing
The White Rabbit's Pocket Watch; purple macaroon with a blueberry cream filling
The Queen of Hearts; layers of raspberry buttercream, chocolate ganache and raspberry jelly
Scones with jam and cream
I like the mini sized scones, which come out nice, warm and not too dry at all, which can be a disadvantage when it comes to the smaller sized scones.
