An Afternoon Delight
From the moment you walk into the well-appointed Piano Lounge, its African-chic overtones offset the spectacular array of decadent delights. With a tantalising and inventive selection of high tea treats from afternoon tea sandwiches to boutique flans, tartlets, cakes, meringues, and the Saxon signature macaroon, our pastry chefs’ flair emanates through their creations.
Each and every delicate indulgence uses only the finest imported and local ingredients, from Valrhona chocolate and gold leaf from France to the clotted cream for the scones that originates from the Cape. Contemporary flower arrangements by Franz Grabe adorn the main table amid clusters of culinary masterpieces in a feast for the senses. Beyond the floor to ceiling windows one overlooks the spectacular views over the infinity pool into the landscaped garden dotted with dramatic statues.
Exclusively serving Yswara, an African tea collection of rare leaves sourced and blended on the continent, our tea sommeliers are trained in the art of tea brewing and food pairing. Yswara tea is the perfect accompaniment to the sumptuous High Tea menu, with a predilection for the ritual around creating the perfect cup. Whether you have a penchant for sweet or savoury delicacies, the tantalizing menu of handcrafted epicurean delights will be the perfect accompaniment to your afternoon of indulgence. Combining passion, expertise and the latest global gourmet food trends, the Chefs take guests on an experiential journey to explore the emotive culinary relationships between food and tea.
