H Tasting Lounge Nutcracker High Tea

To celebrate the season, a H Tasting Lounge is serving up tea, finger sandwiches and treats fit for any Nutcracker.

H Tasting Lounge is hosting a Nutcracker-themed high tea, from November 23rd to December 29th.

The event features your usual high tea mainstays, but with a seasonal twist.

If you haven’t done high tea before, this traditionally English event means you are met with three tiers of food. That starts with sandwiches and small savoury dishes, then usually scones with clotted cream and jam. At the top is a plate of miniature desserts.

H Tasting Lounge’s dishes, however are featured on a small ferris wheel. The menu includes smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches, squash soup and tourtieres.

On the sweet side, you’ll find gingerbread cake, a yule log and a cotton candy bonsai tree, among other treats.

And given its name, a pot of tea will accompany it all.

At the lounge, this includes a Nutcracker Black Tea Blend, with hints of hazelnut and vanilla. Or you can choose the Herbal Sugar Plum Fairy with whirls of vanilla, strawberry and you guessed it: plum.

That being said, any tea can be made a little more cheery with alcohol-infused teas.

But now the question is, what will you wear to this decadent holiday event?
