High Tea was once a meal for the working man, taken standing up or sitting on tall stalls, which is where the ‘high’ comes from. Today, it is more commonly known as a meal of tea, sandwiches, scones and cake.
The charm of high tea is becoming increasingly popular across Adelaide, with many hotels, tea rooms and historic buildings offering an array of treats.
Foodi have gathered together the best high tea elements in the CBD to bring you a high tea experience with a difference.
On this walking tour, you’ll visit a variety of venues, each with their own history to tell and samples to share, including a mix of sweet and savoury options. Sparkling wine will be made available for purchase at the last venue.
Your friendly host will discuss how tea was established and came to Australia, as well as the history of high tea, afternoon tea and cream tea.
During the tour, you’ll also stroll through the beautiful Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and finish off at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
There will be some walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it.
Please note this tour needs a minimum of 4 people.

I had a great time, with the chance to have a look around my city
through the eyes of a tourist. We visited several places ie The National Wine Centre Cafe and the South Australian Museum Cafe which I had not been to before. It was a great idea to also go
through the Museum to give us an interest to return 5/5 by Charlotte Berrill 8-2-2016
