Best High Teas in KL

Written by Updated ago

Tea is definitely a big part of both Eastern and Western cultures. Traditionally, high tea was a combination of the afternoon tea and evening meal for the working class served between 5PM and 7PM which included hearty foods that were practical and filling for workers when they came home after a day of hard labour; which of course was washed down with servings of tea. Nowadays, high tea is an elegant affair with dainty Chinaware and delectable treats served usually on a three-tier stand. Come join us as we discover some of the best and unique places to enjoy High Tea in KL.

The scones are good, too; it has a nice buttery taste with a tinge of sweetness. It is served with butter and whipped cream in a shot glass as well as jams from Bonne Maman which includes flavours such as Raspberry, Strawberry as well as Bitter Orange Marmalade. The middle tier includes Finger Sandwiches, Cucumber fingers, Bread with Ham & Cheese and Smoked salmon on bread roll. The top tier has a nice sweet ending with delectables such as Mango Cheesecake with Choco border, Berries Tarlet with edible gold leaf, Honey Shortcake with Nuts topped with Strawberry Mousse and Chocolate Jelly, Berry Macaron and the Chocolate & Orange éclair. The mangoes and berries really did add a refreshing burst of zest. The strawberry mousse on the honey shortcake was indeed a perfect combination. This sweet ending would surely leave you wanting more!

    OneSixFive @ InterContinental Kuala LumpurHalal a81b201f94b2180a29928950eefa06850871fc85c2ba8fcb39753bdbcdfb49cfCertified
    halal

    OneSixFive by Intercontinental hotel is a great place for afternoon tea that even the Queen would approve of. Not only do they serve various pastries on a circular-multi-tiered high-tea set, each of what's available are done to perfection as well. From sandwiches to scones and cakes to macaroons, a good balance of sweet and savoury can be found here. Not forgetting the stunning view right out of the window, where you can find a peaceful yet mesmerising piece of waterfall decor. Coffee and tea pairs pretty well with the dainty bites, but the main draw here is their signature hot chocolate. Okay, not a common match but you just can't overlook a rich chocolate drink.

    Tips

    All day high-tea set from 8am - 12am

    Things to expect

    A stunning place with a great view of their indoor garden.

    Being one of the oldest hotels in Kuala Lumpur certainly isn't easy. They've gone through all the ups and down without closing down. It is also known as one of the more prestige hotel, not because of its price, but rather because of its characteristic and quaint ambience. Their high-tea set isn't the prettiest in town, nor is it the fanciest, but they do deliver both in terms of flavour and variety. It's a great place if you're planning to have a business meeting or a simple get together with some old friends.

    Delectable by Su's version of the high-tea is truly something else. They do not follow the standard law of 3-tier display, but rather, everything being placed on a wooden tray and yes it's meant to be shared over the social media. The selection of snacks too are really different as the star of the dish would be cookies! Who doesn't love cookies! It also includes edible terrariums, popcorn brownie avalanche, and even a cookie play board. Pair that with a cup of Glyphon tea and you're set to enjoy your afternoon. 

    Tips

    The Lanai Lounge @ Royale Chulan Kuala LumpurPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    The Lanai Lounge is one of Royale Chulan's many in-house dining. Located right next to the stairs and in the middle of everything, The Lanai Lounge is a great social gathering hub that offers a pretty decent array of light snacks and drinks. The use of timber flooring as well as vintage-like chairs does give it a certain characteristic. Last but not least, the high-tea set that is available during the day. It's not what you'll expect as the high-tea set is actually Malay kuih. A rather unique combination and twist, but certainly is well worth the try. 

    Tips

    High tea from 12pm to 5pm.

    Things to expect

    A rather small but cosy place.

    Best with

    Tea or juices.

    The Lounge by Hilton is another simple and cosy place that has a pretty decent range of snacks within its high tea snacks. It's not exactly something to die for, but what's interesting about this particular set is the fact that it's served in a bird-cage-like rack. It's pretty odd, yet it's rather amusing. Gotta love the display method! Apart from that, everything else within it is pretty straight forwarded. On par with the way its served, the delectable bites such as scones, cakes, pudding and a pot of tea do nothing but impress your palate.

    Tips

    Reservations available.

    Quite surprisingly, the Lobby Lounge at Shangri-la isn't as grand nor detailed as some of what's available. It is huge, but everything seems bare from afar. All you know is that they have high-tea there, and that's about it regarding the image. Having said that, the high-tea set itself is pretty good, with a wide range sandwich, pastries, cakes and scones. They're all done quite nicely, so feel free to take a few photos and post it on social media.
