The Fullerton Hotel Sydney has introduced its Winter Afternoon Tea Menu, offering a delightful culinary experience that elevates afternoon tea to the realm of fine dining.

Nestled within the historic General Post Office (GPO) building, soon to celebrate its 150th anniversary, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney offers a Winter High Tea Menu that transcends the typical afternoon tea experience.

The grand setting of the Atrium, bathed in natural light and serenaded by the enchanting music from the Bridgerton series, sets the stage for an afternoon of elegance and sophistication.

Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by the Director of Culinary, Bo Sorensen, and Head Pastry Chef Jessica Timpano. Jessica, who joined The Fullerton Sydney three months ago, brings a fresh and innovative touch to the afternoon tea experience. Her previous tenure in Anna Polyviou’s team at the Shangri La Sydney hints at the level of culinary excellence one can expect.

The savoury selection kicks off the menu, and my personal favourite was the Truffled Tea Sandwich with Pastrami, free range egg, beetroot and comté. The truffle added a luxurious depth to the sandwich, while the combination of ingredients created a harmonious and satisfying bite.

However, the true highlight of the afternoon was found in the sweet selection. The Jersey Milk Tart with tres leches, dulce de leche and vanilla stood out as a masterpiece. The tart’s buttery and light pastry paired perfectly with the creamy, caramel-rich filling, making it an unforgettable treat.

In addition to the superb quality of the food, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney’s commitment to accommodating various dietary needs is commendable. They offer gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan menus, ensuring that everyone can enjoy this delightful experience.

Priced at $78 per person, the Winter Afternoon Tea at The Fullerton Hotel Sydney represents exceptional value. The combination of exquisite food, historic surroundings, and refined ambience creates an experience that is both memorable and unique. Whether you are a local looking for a special treat or a visitor seeking a quintessential Sydney experience, this afternoon tea is a must-try.
