I so love it when the dining table gets busy. This is especially seen during the afternoon tea session. With the table overlaying with fine bone china of teapot, teacups and saucers, plates and all other utensils.
Time for a fake tai-tai session and this time we had it in The Tea Lounge in Majestic Hotel KL.
Furnished with old fashioned grid ceilings with posh looking chandelier, comfortable arm chairs and sofa, old school vintage tiles, soft lighting from the table lamps and along with the pianist playing harmony and classy melodies on his grand piano, The Tea Lounge creates such a perfect setting for English Afternoon Tea with a Malaysian twist.
Majestic Hotel’s afternoon tea is served between 3 to 5 pm daily. You may choose to spend your afternoon in different areas namely The Tea Lounge, Atrium at the Colonial Café, The Drawing Room and The Orchid Conservatory with price comes at Rm 48++ for the first 2 areas, Rm 68++ and Rm 88++ respectively. It’s always crowded during the weekend; do make a call in advance to avoid disappointment especially The Orchid Conservatory where seats are limited. How I wish I have joined the girls in The Orchid Conservatory before the readjustment of the price, those orchids are so pretty!
The Orchid Conservatory
The Colonial Cafe
Comes with a wide range of sweets and savouries; served on the elegant three-tier beautiful stand and a pot of house-blend BOH tea.
If you love to have Ronnefeldt tea, you can always top up Rm 30+ for a change. They offer a variety of Ronnefeldt tea ranging from black, green, herbal and fruits tea. We’d topped up for a pot of Irish Whiskey Cream Tea. Simply love it as it this black tea was loaded with whiskey and cocoa aroma.
The selection of sweets and savouries were pretty good. Firstly, it came with the tier stand that filled up with finger sandwiches such as smoked salmon, tuna, cucumber cheese, and two types of scones, plain and raisin. Not to mention some sweets such as banana toffee tart, pavlova, cheese cake, panna cotta and many more. Later on, we were served with savouries that were infused with Malaysian flavours like deep fried potato cheese ball, beancurds and savoury pies. I love the idea they kept the deep fried food warm in the copper container, how considerate! However, scones were a letdown. They were rather dry and lack of buttery taste.
It was a Saturday when we had our afternoon tea. They surprised us with a bit of sweet and savoury near to the end of the session – satay and chocolate brownies.
