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 an meal of tea, sandwiches, scones and cake.
The charm of high tea is becoming increasingly popular across Melbourne, 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 samples to share and history to tell.
During the tour, you’ll pass some of the country’s finest Victorian era buildings, as well as one of the most photographed windows in Melbourne.
Your friendly host will also discuss tea etiquette and how high tea was established, including the history of macarons and scones.
There will be some walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it.

It was really well constructed - great mix of places and Chris was a great host 5/5 by Claire Baxter 10-7-2016
Chris was a fantastic guide, the tour route was well thought out and I really enjoyed the food and tea we got to sample. We had a small group of 6 ladies which was a perfect number in my opinion and was awesome to meet up with some ladies who love high tea as much as me. My friend paid for me to go on the tour with her as a birthday present and I will definitely be considering giving the tour to friends and family for presents. 5/5 by Jo Hayley 10-7-2016
