Elegant Afternoon High Tea @ Tea Lounge, WEIL Hotel Ipoh
Back in late November, I had the opportunity to sample the Afternoon High Tea set at the Tea Lounge, WEIL Hotel Ipoh.
But first of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m still slowly catching up on blog posts and I do hope that this year, I could get more posts up than I did for the entire year last year. Fingers crossed, aye?
I almost missed my chance to review this because it was raining heavily on that day. It was so heavy that my neighborhood was flooded. I had to wait for 20 minutes for the water to subside before I could go out. Anyways.
Don’t forget to check out my other reviews of WEIL Hotel that I’ve posted before:

Tea Lounge at WEIL Hotel has introduced an all-new menu for their 3-Tier High Tea set that brings out the elegance in you. When I think or look at 3-tier afternoon high tea, it makes me think of the old victorian era or something. The time where ladies dress so beautiful with their long flowing gown and hats and the garden full of colorful flowers. Oh, and English men & women with English accent. Aye?
Anyways, you don’t have to dress that fancy but you could still feel the touch of elegance, the touch of class when you dine here at the tea lounge.
I wanted to order something hot because it is afternoon tea time after all but when I saw mocktails in the list, I just had to get one.
Got myself a Shirley Temple (RM16) because I wanted to review the drink. I’ve had one at a mocktail bar quite a while back and it was extremely disappointing and completely tasteless so I wanted to know if they serve a good Shirley Temple or not.
It’s not bad! It’s sweet, flavorful and so much better than the one I had at the mocktail bar.
Mini Chicken Charcoal Burger – This burger is so cute and it tastes really good too except I arrived a bit late so the bread was cold and hard. Make sure you eat it as soon as it arrives at your table because no food is good when it’s cold.
This is my most favorite – Baked Crab
It is SO DAMN GOOD. Baked crab with melted on top. Oh yes. It’s something that you wouldn’t get bored of, and because it tastes so good it keeps you wanting for more. Two are simply not enough and I’m not kidding.
Both mini burger and baked crab are on the first tier.
Moving on to the second tier where there are Smoke Salmon with Cream Cheese, Chicken Terrine and Tuna Vol-Au-Vent.
My favorite out of all is the Smoke Salmon with Cream Cheese because anything with salmon is damn good unless you don’t eat fish. I don’t but I love fresh salmon. I also love the Tuna Vol-Au-Vent. The puff pastry is flaky and buttery and just kind of melts in your mouth.
The third tier contains a few desserts for your sweet tooth – Strawberry Tartlet, Macarons, and Strawberry Pannacotta in Glass.
Pannacotta is one of my favorite all-time desserts so I was happy to see it in the set. It’s sweet and smooth with strawberry flavor. Macarons aren’t overly sweet so it’s just nice.
The set also comes with a side dish consisting of Raisin Scones and Chocolate Mousse Cake. I was really enjoying my scones with some jam that I forgot to snap a picture.
Maybe ordering a cold drink was a bad idea, especially after an extremely heavy rain and having to go through a flash flood in my neighborhood. I was freezing and shivering cold.
So I decided to order another drink. A cup of hot Cappuccino (RM14). You can never go wrong with a hot cup of aromatic Cappuccino to warm you up on a cold day. 😀

A variety of Dimah tea flavors is available at the tea bar.
They also have some cakes available but not many to choose from. However, that Peanut Marshmallow sure sounds sinfully delicious.
The 3-Tier High Tea is only at RM60 nett per set but you could save more when you order 2 sets for only RM108 nett. It’s available daily from 12 pm to 5 pm. If you would like to make a reservation, you could call them at 05-208 2228.
