Park Hyatt Sydney

The Park Hyatt Sydney is credited world-wide as being a 5-star experience and our most recent visit to indulge in its new afternoon tea menu proved exactly why. They’ve turned the more traditional high tea on its head, but it’s that good we don’t think anyone will object – we certainly didn’t! Gone is the silver stand in the middle of the table, replaced with a grazing style menu of 11 petite dishes which are grouped together and served to the table over seven different courses. It’s an experience not unlike a fine dining degustation.

Primus Hotel Sydney

High Tea at the Primus Hotel Sydney

From entering the Art Deco atrium until taking the very last bite of your indulgent feast, you are taken on a journey of luxurious and exotic 1930s glamour at the Primus Hotel. Teas range from Moroccan Mint to an African Solstice. The selection of hedonistic cocktails isn’t modest either; A wise choice is the 1939 Absolut citron, lychee and cassis, named after the year the building was established. What is unique is the pumpkin tart, popcorn mousse and rhubarb jam that will have you scraping the bottom of the jar.
