Afternoon Tea @ MAZE, Persiaran Tropicana
Afternoon tea is what we normally go with a cup of coffee or tea. At most, that will be champagne for a luxe version of afternoon tea. But when afternoon tea is to pair with Gin cocktail, it takes my call for it! How interesting!!!
The mystery looking MAZE, has a dual identity. It is a coffee saloon by the day and gin parlour by the night. Also known as the first gin parlour in Malaysia; equipped with over 200 labels of Gin from all over the world upto today, serving you gin-tastic cocktails.
I am really amazed with the gin label over here. There are so many unknown gins available on the menu; with descriptions given as well as pairing with the fruits for more flavours.
Furnished with chic and sophisticated decors and paintings; Cosy and quiet ambience with elegant setting. I love how the place is decorated. It is classy and very photogenic, perfect for Instagram shot.
Since it’s the coffee saloon by the day, so expect yourself to get some delicacies to go along with the tea or coffee.

The delicacies were laid prettily in the tea tray. Love that Premium 3-layer Chocolate Slice that was super thick and rich in chocolaty taste, Butter Croissant with Salted Egg Yolk Dip that was so on the point, mixed fruit tart and hazelnut tart, and also all the savouries on the tray. Just lovely!
