One of my favourite girlie dates is to go out for high tea. There’s something refined and classic about sitting at a nice restaurant with your girlfriends, sipping tea and eating lovely tid bits.
Heron’s has given traditional high tea a new and modern take by creating their own Hive Tea Time. For $26.95, each person gets a choice of locally sourced loose tea, your choice of aged cheddar or blue cheeses, paired with honey infused pastries. Our selections included honey almond cakes, thyme lemon lollipops and bannock bread scones.
An interesting tid bit about their Hive Tea – the hotel curates and harvests their own honey. They have their own honey farm on their rooftop.
I loved the choice of cheeses – I opted for the aged cheddar. It came with apple and ginger bits. Great paring.
Aside from the pastries, the goodies came with a fantastic home made honey butter. It was out of this world.
The Waterfront Hive Tea is available daily from 2 – 5pm.
