Between finger club-sandwiches, decadent pastries, and scones ladled with cream (while delicious), High Teas are not overly-known for being suitable for the rapidly-growing population who identify as vegan. But, that all changes now – With the discovery of a vegan High Tea in Auckland, at none other than one of Auckland’s most prestigious venues. High Tea by Cordis offers a fully-inclusive, all-vegan High Tea setting, complete with all the frills and trimmings. Served according to tradition, on their best porcelain China, the luxurious experience runs for two-hours filled with delectable sweets, savouries, and of course tea. Including the option to add on a glass of bubbles or two.
Seasonal menu items are constantly switched out to maximise local produce use, but you can expect dishes such as pickled mushrooms and mushroom truffle salad, roasted vegetable pita pockets with hummus, classic cucumber sandwiches, as well as roasted capsicum and pesto sandwiches, chocolate and tofu ganache, nut and pistachio cakes, and coconut and caramelised pineapple panna cotta. With everything made as fresh as can be, leaving the dough velvety and scones fluffy, it’s easy to forget everything is plant-based and eco-friendly.
Prices start at $59, depending on the day, with family-friendly settings available as well! Make sure to secure your spot for a delectable afternoon of fresh vegan food and great company shared over a cup of tea.
