Got together with Wen and Steph for high tea at The Veranda. We were seated looking out at the ocean, it was really nice.
The waiter brought out their selection of teas and let us smell each one as he explained them.
I chose a white tea that was infused with peach. Loved the aroma of this.
We were also served a cup of white bean and garlic soup. I liked this because it wasn't overly garlicky.
Then came the finger sandwiches--can't remember what he said but they were all very good!
Chocolate Macadamia cookies and cream puffs--wished they had filled the cream puffs with custard instead of whipped pastry cream.
Mango scones with devonshire cream and mango curd....mmm!
Mango cake with a rich mango sauce and fruit tart...I liked the mango cake over the tart.
Lemongrass sorbet to cleanse the palate.
It was a gorgeous day, lots of chatting...perfect to share with friends.
