Tea time, more especially high tea time, is my favourite. So an afternoon filled with tea and spreads of sweet treats at the luxurious One&Only was just up my alley. It also happens to be just up the alley of one of my best friends, who was the reason for our visit.
A few weeks ago we celebrated the 6 month count down to my friend's wedding. Us bridesmaids decided to surprise her with an afternoon high tea, with some champagne thrown in too, at The One&Only.
Afternoon tea is served in the magnificent, high ceilinged Vista Bar. Tea time was accompanied by such an amazing duo playing acoustic music- I actually regret not going up to them and asking to buy a cd. You can spend the whole afternoon relaxing on the couches and enjoying your tea and treats.
There is a wide and exotic selection of teas (and coffees) to choose from and you can top up as many times as you like. The spread of decadent snacks, mainly sweet, with some savoury, is vast and you can eat as much as you want. Everything seems just too pretty to eat. There is so much to choose from that I couldn't even try everything.
We had a wonderful afternoon and I know I will be back. Although on the pricey side -R225pp- High Tea at The One&Only was definitely worthwhile.
