During ordinary times, i.e. pre-pandemic days, many of us would love to while away our weekend afternoons enjoying high teas with friends and family but as we’re now encouraged and advised to stay indoors as much as possible, we need not give up on the high teas we have indulged in before especially when we have a good option like the High Tea Takeaway Set from G Hotel Gurney Penang. The set is available from noon-11pm daily and you get a takeaway three-tiered stand of homemade scones, sandwiches, cakes, croissants and tea of your choice.
Whether you prefer savouries or sweets for high tea, this set is sure to please your palate as you can have Traditional Cucumber Wholemeal Sandwiches, Mini Croissants with Chicken and Cheese, Mushroom and Leek Quiche, Home-Cured Salmon on Rustic Bread, Strawberry Tarts, Profiteroles with Mango Cream, Opera Slice and Cupcakes with Strawberry Icing, among the offerings.
A few days ago, Juniper’s Journal’s Penang correspondent The Blue Flamingo collected this lovely high tea takeaway set compliments of G Hotel Gurney Penang and below is her review on the set:
It was a pleasant surprise on a Friday afternoon and it came in a white cylindrical cone box with the G Hotel logo on it. When the cover to this mystery cone box was lifted, there were tiers of afternoon treats and delights to be found in it. To lovers of tea time treats, this portable box of goodies from G Hotel is ultimately guaranteed to brighten up anyone’s day.
This box of yummy treats consists of both sweet and savoury delights. Being a lover of savoury treats myself, I found myself automatically gravitating towards the savoury items like the mini mushroom quiches, mini croissants and the mini baguette slice topped with mini smoked salmon pieces. Mind you, the mini cake slices and mini muffins, cream filled puffs was just as delicious. They were not also not too sweet and so those on a reduced sugar diet need not worry. The box also comes with two tea bags, a mini pot of jam and a mini piece of butter.
This box of delights can be served at different types of occasions from office functions, meetings and gatherings to picnics, birthday and dinner parties. It can also be a surprise gift to someone special. Furthermore, the hotel will also deliver it to your doorstep.
Congratulations to the G Hotel for coming up with this brilliant idea and whoever designed that cylindrical cone shaped box is a genius.
