A sophisticated tea gathering is always a great way to celebrate or catch up with friends or family. It’s also perfect for enjoying delicious finger sandwiches, decadent pastries, scrumptious scones and soothingly hot teas.
For those of you who want to indulge in a high tea experience but would rather not leave home to experience it, I’ve got just the list for you! I’ve compiled this list of Melbourne's numerous high tea delivery businesses so you can indulge at home.
These high tea experiences are also the perfect solution for an at-home indulgence or to give as a gift to a special person in your life.
So what are you waiting for? Pick one of these Melbourne shops and online businesses, set the table, get dressed up and make the most of high tea in a box!
Note I have only curated high tea deliveries that are suitable for small gatherings, i.e. servings for a couple or a few people and not for a large-scale catering event.
