High tea is a traditional service, with waitstaff bringing three-tiered platters and pots of tea or coffee to your table. But the food is not exactly your traditional high tea food. The array of sweets and savouries provide an interesting mix of flavours. Such as the olive-cucumber savoury macaroons, the smoked kingfish and wild lime caviar, and the quail egg benedict with black truffle.
But what's a high tea without yummy scones with huge dollops of jam and cream? In a Parliament House high tea, you get absolutely scrumptious pecan crumble scones with specialty 'house-made' jam and lots of fluffy cream.
