Afternoon Tea at The Langham, Auckland

It was only fitting to visit The Langham for afternoon tea on a crisp Spring day in the City of Sails.   

The decor was the first thing that blew me away – look at that chandelier!

The sweet tier. My favourite was the citrus cake pop. 

  We were advised to start with the sandwich tier. Simply perfect.
Savoury macarons! Although the shell was still sweet with a savoury filling. An interesting concept however I am not convinced, I believe macarons belong on the sweet tier. I also would have liked more diversity on this tier between cheese and seafood flavours with creamy textures. Isn’t the presentation gorgeous though?! 
  Put that pinky away! It’s not the done thing you know 😉  
The Langham has its very own Wedgwood tea set – beautiful! The tea menu was designed by The Langham’s exclusive tea sommelier, New Zealand’s only Master of Tea!

 The menu for those of you detail oriented people.
Overall, the experience was well worth the $59 each we paid on a Saturday afternoon.
