G&Tea, The Star Sydney’s tea room that transforms into a glamourous gin bar at night, has introduced a decadent new high tea menu for the cooler months.

Settled amongst the plush navy and rose velvet chairs, marble bench tops and golden lighting, diners can enjoy
freshly-baked scones with housemade jam and chantilly cream alongside a carefully curated set menu of savoury and
sweet bites designed to share.

Sydney Social 101 recently visited G&Tea for a lovely afternoon high tea. The tea room is luxurious, decadent and super cosy. The staff are very warm, welcoming and very attentive.

I consider myself a bit of a high tea aficionado  and can honestly say this was one of the best high teas I have ever had. The scones served with jam and cream were light, fluffy and perfectly buttery. The savory bites included a cajun prawn remoulade with charred lemon served on a brioche bun and a delicate rye sandwich with smoked salmon, cream cheese, fennel and orange. Not only did they look amazing they tasted delicious too.

The cakes were the real stars of the show! Full of exciting  layered flavours and textures, the cakes were beyond delectable. My top two favourite sweeties were the vanilla bean panna cotta topped with gin-infused rhubarb and raspberry and a matcha & yuzu choux au craquelin.

The indulgent high tea menu ($55 per person) is served with a choice of tea (practically bottomless) or coffee, or can be upgraded to include sparkling wine (an additional $10 per person) or champagne (an additional $20 per person). Guests can also choose from G&Tea’s expansive tea menu, which has over 25 different tea types ranging from the
classic and traditional to the rare.

Located on the ground floor of The Star Grand hotel, G&Tea is the perfect venue to unwind for afternoon tea. G&Tea is open seven days a week from 8:00am to 8:00pm, with high tea available from midday to 4:00pm Thursday to Sunday.
