We were served Ronnefeldt English Breakfast tea. Tasted funny. Macam air longkang, eeyer.

Sofitel high tea items
Top left to right: chocolate cup filled with custard and strawberries, cream swan puff and Opera gateau.

Bottom left to right: pistachio macaron, cupcake topped with pashmark (persian fairy floss) and lemon meringue tart.

Savoury, we have sandwiches (egg salad and ham & fig jam) and also scones (plain and raisin) with cream and strawberry jam.

All pastry items were delectable except the puff which is a bit dry and the scones were stone cold.

Especially good was the Opera gateau. Big King ate 2 pieces despite bursting from all the other food. Princess ate most of her share @_@.

I look forward to trying out other high tea offerings in Brisbane.
