Dating back to the 1700’s, High Tea began as a mid-afternoon meal for the man on the land. It was taken standing up or on stools – hence the name, ‘high’ tea. Much has changed over the centuries and High Tea is still evolving.
For a twist on the traditional experience, head to the Sunshine Coast hinterland – where you’ll discover three tasty variations on the theme.
Elements at Montville is a tea-house, gift store and day spa – all stirred in together. It offers a “Change of Season High Tea” which starts with a pampering spa treatment and ends with a three-tiered high tea overlooking the Kondalilla Falls Valley.
