High tea in Bali is not something you would automatically think of. More likely would be the thoughts of tropical huts on the beach, Indonesian food and cocktails at sunset. But when you think about how enjoyable high tea is and how loved it it by people, especially those on holidays, it makes perfect sense to have high tea in Bali.
So where is the best place to have high tea? We would love to hear your thoughts as to where you have enjoyed high tea in Bali.
To get the conversation started, I'd like to share a few of my favourites with you:
An all time favourite is Biku in Seminyak, which costs 105,000rp ($10.50) pp
Biku is set in a lovely colonial joglo, seated amongst the dark teak timbers. You may feel like you have stepped back in time to ancient Indonesia or Borneo! Your beautifully prepared tea is served with a tower of fine china, laden with sandwiches, cakes, scones, jam and cream. Click here for the full article

Angelita's will have you thinking you have stepped straight into Paris.
Set on jalan legian, Angelita Tea Salon & Patisserie is amongst a mad chaos of broken roads, trucks spewing out exhaust, hundreds of motorbikes and generally noisy madness mixed with heat and humidity. But step inside Angelita's and you are instantly embraced in a cool freshness. The relief of the air con is welcoming, but as you gaze around at the bright white and pale blue decor a sense of serenity washes over you. Their apple mojitos are perfect to refresh on a hot day, the coffee is great and the selection of cakes will make choosing almost impossible.
However for 250,000rp for 2 people ($25) they will serve you a lavish high tea in beautiful style. Click here for the full article

Copper at Hotel Bisma Eight is fresh, new, funky and does a great high tea. Set high above Ubud on the rooftop, innovative high tea is served on wooden stands on the weekend. You can choose from traditional, gluten free or vegan Rp 120,000 ($12) - 140,000 ($14) for 2 people which includes a pot of tea or coffee each. Great value.
They also have an amazing endless swimming pool, so if you want to stay and cool off, you can do so after tea for an additional 60,000rp fee.
Copper and Bisma Eight are located at the south end of Jalan Bisma, Ubud, Bali.
