High Tea has been an age-old English tradition. Sharing a warm pot of tea over scones, short cakes and savoury pies with friends in tapestry dressed salons was a mark of the socialising upper class since the time of colonial rule. Fortunately, the tradition did not fade but wielded its way into modern culture too. Today high tea is a casual affair and is a welcome reverie that celebrates the sweet things of life. If you are looking for a languid evening with friends or even a private tête-à-tête over an assortment of sumptuous sweet and savoury items this season, The Kingsbury will be hosting the best of high tea sessions this side of the city. The Gourmet Station the hotel’s patisserie enjoys the advantage of picturesque views of both the city and the horizon, giving its guests a more fulfilling experience. High tea will be served daily during this festive season between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. and will be priced at Rs. 1,500 nett per person. In addition, the Harbour Court will be geared to serve the season’s scrumptious specialties at the Sunday Brunch.  A sneak peek into the menus reveal sushi, sashimi and maki with wasabi and soy sauce, grapefruit with crab meat, ginger and mint, smoked duck breast with oranges, roast turkey with apricot stuffing, roast potatoes and vegetables, baked veal roulade with prunes and wild mushrooms complete with Christmas pudding with white sauce, lavender crème brûlée, coffee and spices, mixed berries and mascarpone and pineapple and coconut white chocolate shooter for dessert. Brunch will commence at 11:30 a.m. and will continue right until high tea time at 3 p.m. Priced at Rs. 3,200 nett per person, Sunday Brunch at the Harbour Court overlooking the docking ships and the sparkling morning sea is indeed an excellent offer.  Stop by for a taste of opulence and unparalleled hospitality this season. Indulging in luxury dining while drinking in the spectacular scenery of the drowning sun in the middle of the busy city, sure sounds like a promising plan this holiday month.
