It’s a lovely terrace with covered and open seating. We were served by a polite lady who took the time to explain how the Morning Tea is served and gave us the opportunity to experience “tea”: it was made in front of us with the fragrant tea leaves.
There’s such a wide variety of special teas that we were undecided for some time. I opted for the vanilla with strawberry which turned out delicious. Our two-tiered stand was mesmerising. Scrumptious eats at the bottom and a mini heaven for
me the sweet-toothed at the top. We also received a little basket with chocolate cookies, chocolate croissants and scones. I haven’t received this many edibles at a high tea before and even though we arrived hungry, we still didn’t manage to taste every single item we were served.
Oh, and apparently the Morning Tea option is a ‘toned down’ version of the Afternoon Tea.
Mount Nelson is quite a hospitable venue. When we called to make a booking, we were offered the halal option before even asking – I love that this was an automatic response to hearing our names.
Watch out Mount Nelson… We’ll be returning for round #2 soon!
