1. Anti:dote at Fairmont Hotel for your luxurious Instagram shot

This is probably the most Instagrammed high afternoon tea set in town. For you chic and dapper ladies and gentlemen, the modern and swanky interior of Anti:dote makes you feel right at home. Picture dazzling light installations, plush velvet sofas, and clean geometrical décor.

For afternoon tea, enjoy the Anti:dote Afternoon Indulgence which features amuse bouche, sandwiches, sweets, and scones! Top up an extra S$10 for an option of which amuse bouche you’d prefer. Afternoon tea is also served with premium tea from TWG, or coffee from Anti:dote. The bar also has a dedicated menu for your little ones. The Children’s Afternoon Tea set at Anti:dote includes sandwiches, petit desserts, and scones! Of course, the drinks for children are caffeine-free — they can choose from hot or iced chocolate, as well as apple and orange juice.

Your Anti:dote tea experience begins with the arrival of a white leather-clad jewelry drawer chest. At first, it seems like a cute tea toy set straight from most girls’ childhood. Until you open each drawer, that is, to unveil over 10 beautifully crafted sandwiches, pastries, cakes, and scones. Every drawer reveals more and more delights for you to feast on. This is obviously what sets Anti:dote’s tea set apart from the typical presentation of buffet spreads or cake tiered stands.

And don’t get me started on the divine taste! Here, the savoury and the sweet pair perfectly together. Earl Grey tea complimented especially well with the Madagascan Vanilla Scones, Capsule Cocoa Bonbons, and Homemade Duck Confit

2. Arteastiq for your inner chic French artist

From its name, you can immediately tell that this restaurant is all about art and tea.

There is a subtle tease and sexiness to this place with its snazzy monochrome furniture, glamorous chandeliers, French jazz, and an art jam studio.

Their latest Signature High Tea Set includes two specialty teas and a two-tier stand of light sweets and savouries. Choose from an artisan gourmet spread of Vol Au Vent with Tuna and Cheese, Chocolate Cone with Banana Custard, Smoked Salmon Roulade with Cream Cheese and Tobiko and much more!

For an additional cost of S$28 onwards, you are equipped with a canvas and paint to help you unleash your creativity. Don’t worry – you can take home your Van Gogh masterpiece afterwards!

Food and drinks aside, it is all about the concept of social interaction in Arteastiq. I couldn’t help but feel like a French artist gathering with other creatives in a Parisian salon! It’s a truly exquisite experience amongst all Singapore high teas. Plus another perk? There is no specific “tea time” as you can come and destress anytime from day to night!
