With over 60 varieties of tea and a comfortable, soothing atmosphere, the Starhill Tea Salon is a lovely place to pause in the middle of your busy day, and just relax. The armchairs and couches invite you to stay awhile, and the tea canisters, stacked in columns around the seating area, offer an innovative and colourful delight to the eye. At teatime, there’s a pianist at the grand piano playing light music selections, which adds to the ambiance.
There are two options for Afternoon Tea, the English and Oriental Sets. The English set is relatively traditional and includes petite Open-faced Sandwiches, Fruit Scones with Whipped Cream and Blackberry Jam and a selection of French Pastries, which change daily. I especially enjoyed the Lemon Macaron and the Chocolate Cake with a rich chocolate ganache topping. The Oriental Set provides a selection of nice fresh Sushi and Maki along with Fried and Steamed Dim Sum.
