I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.

High Tea at The Westin is perfect for catching up with friends for the festive season, birthdays or just a get together on a cold, wet Melbourne summer's day. The Westin's High Tea is held in the lobby of The Westin Hotel in Collins Street, Melbourne, not far from Flinders Street Station or the tram stops on Collins and Swanston Streets.
After a long Melbourne lockdown friends and I caught up for a pre-Christmas High Tea which was reflected in the theme of the High Tea we attended. We were tucked away in the 'library' section of the lobby, which was quiet and out of the main lobby area.
We had a nice selection of savoury and sweet treats as well as scones, jam and cream, an all-important addition to any High Tea in my mind anyway. I enjoyed the Christmas savoury pie and I wished my friends had left theirs. The white chocolate, eggnog and caramel tart said, 'Merry Christmas' to me. Coffee, hot chocolate and Jing teas were included in the price. In addition to the High Tea food menu, there was also a tea menu for those who like a variety of tea. My friends organised a sweet treat surprise for my birthday which I took home for later. We had the Seasonal High Tea $59 package, which was plenty for us. A nearby table was indulging in what looked like a Sparkling Diamond High Tea.
