On a recent visit to Sydney we attended the launch of the Sparkling High Tea at the Abode Bistro & Bar at ParkRoyal Darling Harbour.

You can now enjoy your high tea with three glasses of paired sparkling wines. The high tea menu features desserts that had been infused with sparkling wine and served with glasses of Villa Jolanda prosecco and Jansz sparkling wine.

The menu has been designed around seasonal produce. My favourite item was the smoked salmon and crepe roulade. The soft cheese was cured with Villa Jolanda Prosecco, with elements of peach and pink grapefruit.
The sweet selection included chocolate dipped strawberries infused with Jansz Rose and Turkish delight with rosewater aromas courtesy of the Jansz Rose.

I must say its lovely to see good tableware served at high tea. High Tea at Abode is served on tableware from the Villeroy & Boch Mariefleur collection.

The restaurant is stylish and bright as it features carpets and wallpaper from Catherine Martin, by lattice works by Florence Broadhurst and plantation shutters.

The Sparkling high tea at the Abode Bistro & Bar offers a contemporary twist on the traditional high tea menu. This would be the ideal venue for a birthday party or hens party high tea.
