High Tea in Brisbane & the Gold Coast this Mother’s Day

Experience opulence and decadent treats with a High Tea experience in Brisbane or the Gold Coast for Mothers’ Day on Sunday the 12th of May 2019.

Say thank you and celebrate all that mothers do with the perfect High Tea experience in an elegant setting.

Here at High Tea Society we have the task of tasting and enjoying plenty of High Teas during the year, so you could say we know a thing or two about what makes it something special.

 

Our Mother’s Day Brisbane top picks:

Stamford Plaza Brisbane

his venue with its stunning floral bouquets and drifty sounds from a strings-weilding musical ensemble, inspired by the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, is stunning. The Stamford takes cue from a colonial past and offers a high tea service fit for the Queen. In regards to food, we particularly enjoyed the crispy, non-greasy chicken curry puffs.

Customs House Brisbane

This is one of Brisbane’s most awarded function venues. Customs House is situated in Brisbane’s CBD right on the river. If you’re lucky you’ll get a table overlooking the stunning Story Bridge. What could be more Brisbane than Queensland sand crab? Pair it with sweet ginger dressing in a cucumber cup and there’ll be an explosion of flavours and textures in your mouth. You can wash down the treat with a complimentary mimosa.

I couldn’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon than drinking tea and taking in the views of the Brisbane River. As we entered the classic looking timber paddle wheeler we were greeted at every turn by the boat’s lovely staff.  While the afternoon got off to a rocky start with my glass, of Grand Region Sparkling Cuvee almost being served to me in a dirty glass things quickly took a turn for the better.

The glamorous Rydges Hotel in Southbank is ideal for tea lovers. Edibles were also pleasantly surprising. The croissant, which is served with truffle and eggs – a lovely twist on an old favourite.

The Palazzo Versace high tea has an offering of magnificent martinis and cocktails, barista made coffee, decadent treats and elegant snacks. Marvel at the sparkling crystal chandelier, bespoke Versace furnishings, and azure Lagoon Pool whilst nibbling on a double smoked ham, jarlsberg cheese and djonnaise sandwich. It only gets better with desserts such as the Cherry Delice Dragonfruit, Pandan with Berry Choux Bun and unique rhubarb and passionfruit jams to accompany fluffy scones.

QT Hotel Gold Coast

There’s no chance of forgetting where you are with this hotel’s 1950s-inspired beach-club resort feel, and treats that take form of bikini babes. Just a short stroll from Surfers Paradise Beach this high tea offers an exquisite but surprising menu. What appears to be a sweet red macaron (isn’t that always the case?) is actually a tomato one that features tomato consommé gel, cream cheese and basil from QT’s garden. You can also add a little something extra to your experience by sipping on some delicious Champagne Perrier-Jouet.
