You've found the gold ticket with this chocolate high tea
Already renowned for their high tea offerings (including vegan, gluten-free and child-friendly options) the hotel has launched their new Chocolate High Tea from January 2018. The chocolate high tea menu features swirl-in-your mouth sweet items such as handmade passionfruit lollipops, chocolate mud cake, chocolate mousse, caramel popping candy tarts (how very Willy Wonka), Oreo macarons and chocolate chip scones with cacao cream and strawberry jam. Savoury items include spinach and feta rolls and sausage rolls.
All of the delights on the menu are made onsite and prepared fresh daily by pastry chef Noa Nisell-Hauser, who has designed this menu which can be enjoyed by both kids and kids at heart.
Pastry chef Noa joined the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney after working for several years in other iconic cities such as Stockholm and Tel Aviv. Noa's passion for baking is evident in the Chocolate High Tea menu, as she wanted to provide something she could enjoy, as well as her child. The goal was to create a high tea that created the excitement and dazzle, that can be found in Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
With this high tea being a sensory and tasty chocolate experience, it is also available during February, making it the perfect Valentine's Day treat. The hotel will also be running a competition to allow one lucky winner to spoil their loved one to a chocolate high tea.
As well as loved ones spoiling each other, the hotel will be giving away three High Tea family passes to families of The Infants' Home to ensure everybody can enjoy this exciting, chocolate-filled experience.
This chocolate high tea is another first for Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney, as it was also one of first Sydney hotels to launch a gluten-free high tea in 2015 and the first 5-star hotel in Sydney to introduce a Vegan High Tea in 2017.
High tea is served daily in the Fax Bar or Lady Fairfax Room of the hotel between 10:30am and 4:30pm.
As the Chocolate High Tea is a specialised high tea, bookings are essential. The Chocolate High Tea is available for $49 per person or $125 for families of 2 adults and 2 kids under 10.
This chocolate-themed high tea is 20 minutes walk from the Capitol Theatre, where this musical is playing.
