High Tea Society™ features news, city guides, reviews & recipes from the best High Tea venues around the world.

High Tea Society is a highly engaged digital marketing platform used by High Tea venues and luxury hotels around the world.

High Tea Society was created in 2008 by Founder and Director, foodie and digital marketing expert, Michelle Milton. Milton spent time working in digital marketing and communications in London. During her time in the UK, she enjoyed going out for High Tea, but upon her return to Australia, discovered it difficult to find quality high tea experiences in Melbourne.

As food blogging was on the rise Milton noticed a gap in the market, while there were numerous food blogs, there weren’t any catering to High Tea enthusiasts specifically. She created the platform to cater to the niche market by documenting her search for great High Tea experiences and venues.

High Tea Society has grown into an internationally recognised platform and marketplace, with a network of over 190,000 social media followers, email subscribers, 100s of venues on the High Tea Venue Directory, recipes and interviews with notable chefs.

For Milton and her followers High Tea is a lavish occasion to be enjoyed all around the world. It has become a luxury travel destination experience, with many international high end hotels offering their own version.

The directory lists hundreds of venues and showcases previous reviews. The search capabilities allow users to search and discover venues via region, country, or city. Alongside the directory is the booking system which is user friendly and accessible.

The site also features interviews from international chefs and personalities, tips on how to host your own High Tea and recipes from the world’s best.

High Tea Society runs campaigns with brands and hotels through sponsored competitions, directory listings or offers.

Milton and her team of over 20 contributors continue to explore all facets of High Tea and expand the platform to cater to all the needs and wants of their community.

High Tea Society celebrated fifteen years of publishing in December 2023.
