These school holidays, if you are looking for a decadent afternoon escape, I recommend the Mad Hatters Tea Party at the Langham Hotel in Sydney. This is how it goes down…

My 5-year old daughter and I arrive at the entrance of the gorgeous Langham Hotel Sydney and have doors opened for us by a wonderful ‘Sir’ with a tall top hat.

Jasmine with Langham taxiWe are politely ushered into the grand tea room, where we find a long table, beautifully set with elegant Wedgwood crockery and decorated with balloons, pom poms, chocolate, and an array of face masks and props  to set the mood for “The Mad Hatters Tea Party’.

Delightful little pleasures await and all the smiley faces are filled with awe.

The tea party commences with a “magical’ pour of smooth, creamy hot chocolate accompanied by a dollop of cream and a tiny dish of mini chocolate balls that crackle and crunch at first bite. The arrangement is finished with marshmallows.

The three-tier platters presented are like something straight out of Alice in Wonderland.

The savoury tier offered lamb and rosemary pie, salmon rillettes with brioche, three cheese mini aranchini  and the thin layer of crisp tartlet topped with crab and avocado.

The savoury and sweet offerings were perfectly complimented with your choice of tea, from the Langham’s tea menu.

  • Upon departure each guest was handed a beautiful box of hand made Easter eggs, perfectly timed for the Easter break.
  • Guaranteed to impress Kids and adults alike and the fussiest of tea connoisseurs.
  • Kids are served half portions (at half the price!).
