A perfect introduction to high tea on the Maylands Peninsula
The only thing disappointing about my first high tea experience was that I'd never tried it sooner.

The Parisian High Tea at the Peninsula Tea Gardens is a fabulous introduction to the delectable art of high tea. What better way to spend an afternoon celebrating your mother's birthday than sipping tea from fine bone china (and French champagne from flutes in our case) sampling delicate little sandwiches and charming cupcakes and slices. All this, served within the beautiful surrounds of the Maylands Peninsula.

The Peninsula Tea Garden was a lovely introduction to High Tea.

Tea is served first and foremost. There is a selection of teas from around the world, such as Barbado Dream, Lovers Leap, Stockholm and Serendip Chai. I chose the Buddha's Tears for its hint of Jasmine. If you prefer coffee, you can choose a flat white, cappuccino, latte or short black. You can bring your own sparkling wine or champagne at no extra cost for corkage, which is one of the reason's this High Tea is such great value.

Savouries and champagne. Yum.

A weekend setting will cost $38 per person, and $33 during the week, which is great value for money in the grand scheme of high tea in Perth, where prices can reach upwards of $50 for a sitting.

There was more than enough food for seven people plus a toddler there is no extra charge for babies and toddlers.

Plenty of cakes too.

Naturally, we started with the savouries. Each appetising little sandwich was filled with a selection of egg, ham, roast beef or smoked salmon with a delicious dressing.

Who can resist?

We enjoyed scones with jam and cream (or cream and jam, but let's not debate the rights and wrongs of scones) and sweet little macaroons, rich chocolate cake and charming petit fours. Some of the leftover cakes went home in gorgeous little white boxes.

The Parisian High Tea sittings are available daily from 10am to 12pm, 12:30pm to 2:30pm and from 3pm to 5pm. There is indoor and outdoor dining available, but we chose outdoor on a (thankfully) fine Spring day.

It wouldn't be a High Tea without scones.

The Peninsula Gardens is also a child-friendly venue, with high chairs available and a huge grassed area for little legs to have a run around or play.

Bookings are essential and you will be required to pay a $10 deposit per person when booking.
