Get ready to take your love of scones and club sandwiches to new heights with Bellini’s
Twisted High Tea. Giving the traditional high tea a makeover with imaginative twists on both savoury and sweet bites, Bellini’s reinvented high tea is perfectly paired with a sweeping panoramic view over the Waitemata Harbour.
Served with 100% New Zealand grown and certified organic Zealong Tea, there are three
menu style options to choose from and your high tea experience can be elevated to suit any occasion. For a tea and treat only option, try the refined high tea where you can enjoy hot drinks alongside the delicious menu. If you’re after something with a bit more punch, you can opt for either a Mixologist’s High Tea or Bubbly high tea that include either a taster of Bellini’s signature cocktails or bubbles to accompany.
“We’ve taken the traditional high tea and put a Bellini twist to it – there really is something for everyone. The menu incorporates an elevated style on the classic afternoon tea style with distinctively savoury options alongside an array of decadent sweets you won’t find anywhere else,” says Executive Chef Wallace Mua.
Offering up an abundance of edible delights, indulge your sweet tooth with Peanut Caramel
Delice with gooey salty coconut caramel, hokey pokey centre enveloped in a callebaut
gold chocolate mousse on a peanut butter genoi. Enjoy a delicate lemon tart taken up a notch with flamed meringue and confit lime zest or fluffy raisin scones served warm to your plate, accompanied by delicious cream and their home-made strawberry jam.
These tasty morsels are just the beginning. Chef Mua has put his personal twist on a range of delicious savoury treats including a spinach and feta filo bite with whipped goat’s feta,
folded spinach, walnuts, nutmeg and onion served with cucumber, mint, chilli and a red
onion salsa dusted with sweet cinnamon. Also, on the savoury menu is a Mini Caprese Salad with marinated heirloom tomatoes with sherry vinaigrette, compressed rock melon, basil leaves, smoked buffalo mozzarella and olive jelly with garlic infused ciabatta crumb.
Perfectly paired with a warming selection of 100% certified organic luxury Zealong tea locally grown at their Waikato tea estate, you can choose from a range of smooth black, refreshing green or dreamy chamomile tea.
Bellini’s Twisted High Tea is perfect to enjoy a colourful afternoon with your loved ones, best friends or bridesmaids and indulge in a whimsical mix of modern sweet and savoury treats all while taking in the incredible harbour views.
