After a long afternoon of shopping around town, i (together with a fren) made my first visit to Royal Copenhagen's Tea Lounge
to rest my aching feet
for a round of afternoon high-tea.
Being our first visit here, opting for their high-tea set was a no-brainer really. Their high-tea set comes with tea, sandwiches. their ever-popular scones and a slice of cake.
And no, you dont get to choose your tea. In case you're wondering, its lipton tea by the way, served with sugar cubes and milk.
As for their open faced sandwiches, we went for their smoked salmon and baby shrimps.
I like smoked salmon. I really do, which kinda explains the frequent visits to TCC because 70% of the items in their menu contain smoked salmon.
IMHO, i found the portions too small. But then again, its high-tea, everything's supposed to be bite-sized right? Haha.
For the scones, we chose Rose Hip and Apple Jam from their selection of jams.
Thought we'd be a little more adventurous by steering away from the conventional blueberry, raspberry or strawberry jam. And a good choice it certainly was. =)
Butter and cream were also given to pair with the scones.
Please don't shoot me scone fanatics because i seriously found this scone very ordinary. It smelt better than it tasted but that doesnt mean its all that bad. Maybe im just not a "scone" person. Or perhaps, i shouldnt have come here with too high an expectation.
To end off the meal, we had their much raved about blueberry cheesecake and some tart.
I like the cheesecake. Surprisingly, the cream cheese wasnt on the heavy side. You know how some cheesecakes make you feel so full after a while but this one here actually made me want to eat more with each mouthful. The tart was pretty good too. The layer of raspberry sure gave this dessert an interesting twist.
Will i make a return visit? Sure, but prolly not for high-tea. Am looking forward to trying their main courses, the salmon one espcially. Heah.
