Just your cup of tea
Gather your girlfriends, put on your prettiest frocks, and spoil yourself silly with these 7 high tea experiences.
Delight in a decadent selection of petit-fours, daintily arranged in an iconic white leader-clad jewellry drawer-chest.
Savoury bites include gourmet finger sandwiches and even mini Boston Maine Lobster Rolls; but we reckon the sweet treats such as the Green Apple Tartlet and freshly baked scones with homemade strawberry jam, Devonshire clotted cream and lemon curd take the cake (Pun fully intended!).

Set amidst the lush greens in Gardens By The Bay, the bespoke Pollen experience is an epicurean journey that embraces you in the soothing arms of nature.
Treat yourself to savouries and sweets, from Braised Chicken and Avocado Butter sandwiches to Banana Tea Cakes with Mascarpone Chantilly. All of this with the view of the Marina Bay skyline and waterfront.
We love this inviting, cosy tearoom, with their plush couches and cushions making us feel right at home, with the indoor cascading waterfall and attentive service adding a ton of luxury.
You’ll find both local and international favourites, from curry puffs to artisanal cheese and more.
Dessert in the middle of the night is just about the only thing we’d stay awake for, but equally luxurious is their afternoon tea.
As simple as the selection sounds, from mini sliders and BBQ chicken tacos to cheese tarts and chocolate bonbons, chef Janice Wong has her way of pushing the boundaries, bringing molecular gastronomy even to your tiers of high tea petit-fours. After all, she wasn’t crowned Asia’s best pastry chef for naught!

Want a little bit of everything?
Don’t forget to pace yourself, though – the international high tea buffet at Carousel offers just about everything, from a Japanese cold selection and Teppanyaki station to a Nasi Lemak station to a wraps station; find the sweet treats at the waffle station, a table of cakes and tarts, the hot dessert station, the chocolate fountain station…
We could go on and on, but let’s just say they’re a multiple award-winning buffet for a reason.
