Sheraton on the Park is a luxurious hotel located near Hyde Park in Sydney. Their Gallery Tea Lounge serves up an iconic high tea experience with a selection of savoury and sweet items to enjoy in a modern and open setting. I came here for a weekday high tea with a friend and will share my experience in the post.
The high tea is delivered on the most elegant tree shaped cake stand and contains a selection of savoury and sweet creations with scones, alongside a glass of champagne each as well as unlimited tea, coffee and hot chocolate from $59 per person.
The savoury creations included a Feta, zucchini and red capsicum quiche, gravlax, honey mustard dip, cucumber tortilla, chicken, avocado, radish and mayo on a wholemeal sandwich, shrimp, mustard cress and asparagus on turkish bread and a goat curd and mushroom profiterole. This was probably the best savoury selection I’ve tried at a high tea, everything was so delicate and crafted to perfection. My favourite was the chicken sandwich, the sauce on that just pulled it all together.
The sweet creations included a chocolate profiterole with sesame shards, rose cherry mont blanc, strawberry mousse cake, lamington with raspberry jel, pink grapefruit jelly with white wine mousse, raspberry macaron and rose cherry mont blanc. The theme here was definitely pink and every creation was delicious, I especially loved the macaron, jelly and profiterole, the balance of flavours on those was perfect.
We were also served a plain and rosella flower and white chocolate scone each with jam, cream and butter. I loved the the latter scone, it had a lovely aroma and the white chocolate was not too sweet, allowing the buttery texture to shine through.
We also enjoyed a glass of champagne with our treats and ordered a mocha and hot chocolate each and enjoyed both, the biscotti it came with was a nice touch.
Overall, Sheraton on the Park high tea is one of the best experiences I have been to and definitely reflects the quality of the hotel and the price. It is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion with friends or take your family for a nice treat!
