Little fingers up, and iPhones at the ready! Indulge in an Insta-worthy afternoon tea party at Keraton Lounge, where Malaysia's top star baker Shaun Teo shares his beautiful creations all month long.
Is there anything more posh than sitting down to a hot cuppa while nibbling on warm scones with clotted cream, a variety of delicious miniature pastries and cute little finger sandwiches? Special occasion or not, high tea is the epitome of afternoon indulgence, a chance to feel fancy while pretending to be the ladies and gentlemen of leisure that we ~sometimes~ wished we were. And since it’s 2016, high tea gets an upgrade thanks to one of Malaysia’s top Instagram stars.
Now, any social media savvy #foodie knows that a luxurious afternoon tea is the perfect time for picture taking. Lovely tiers of beautifully crafted bite-sized pastries are served alongside gorgeous porcelain pots of tea for optimum #girltime ‘grams. Keraton Lounge has one-upped all the other afternoon teas in Jakarta by collaborating with Shaun Teo, one of Malaysia’s top star bakers. Just take a peek at his feed – under the moniker of @shaunteocreations – for drop-dead gorgeous treats dressed up to look like unicorns, galaxies and marble. We have serious cake decorating envy!
Since we can’t taste his epically beautiful confections through the screen, Keraton Lounge’s Sweet Luxury High Tea featuring Shaun Teo is the second best thing – a crash course to his almost too-pretty-to-eat creations. The refreshing twist on the traditional high tea costs IDR 298,000 for a tea set that includes a delicious pot of tea, warm scones, a plate of savouries, and the star: Shaun Teo’s delightful creations. We LOVED the tasty Oreo cream cheese purple marbled cake pops, dusted in gold flecks. There’s also the fruit tartlettes, topped off with gold flecks and edible flowers, and miniature cupcakes with his signature edible flowers and gold flecks. Get in on it while you still can.
Sweet Luxury High Tea featuring Shaun Teo available daily until 30 November 2017 (IDR 298,000++). For reservations call +62 21 5068 0000.
