Designer elegance at Brunswick’s new High Tea Room
A quintessentially British High Tea experience has just launched at The Third Tier in Brunswick. Opening its doors in January 2020, The Third Tier is poised to be one of the most luxurious High Teas in Melbourne.
Impeccable Wedgwood crockery and Vera Wang designer silverware line the tables, set amongst beautifully high ceilings, marble floors, an ornate glass chandelier, floor-to-ceiling windows and arch-shaped mirrors.
A stickler for finesse and detail, owner Reem has spared no expense, even filling the tearoom with custom-made and handcrafted white mahogany chairs – an homage to the iconic Ritz London.
Fine-bone English china teacups and saucers pair with freshly pressed white linen, vintage silver teapots and crystal glassware. To say the tearoom is elegant would be an understatement – every measure has been taken to ensure guests feel like royalty from the moment they step through the door.
The iconic three-tier cake stand offers dainty finger sandwiches, savoury pastries, a selection of exquisite desserts and freshly baked scones with cream and jam – all the iconic elements of High Tea tradition.
Savoury delights include egg gribiche sandwiches, prawn tians and truffled mushroom & parsnip pots, which fill the lower and middle tiers. The namesake third tier is reserved for a trio of beautifully crafted sweets.
The star and centrepiece of the set is the Lychee Blush dessert. A flawless pink dome sitting atop a pistachio crumb biscuit base, filled inside with creamy lychee mousse and a tart, raspberry compote centre.
Upon request, The Third Tier offers entirely gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan High Tea sets, catering to all dietary requirements. A full a-la-carte menu is also available and dishes are presented with the same delicacy, finesse and beauty as the signature High Tea.
The Benedict sits on a house-made fenugreek hash brown while the granola is artfully presented with maple labne and a vibrant poached pear in the centre.
Call it afternoon tea, High Tea or Devonshire Tea, enjoy it in the utmost luxury and style at The Third Tier.
