Tipsy Tea Winter Wonderland

Now that it’s getting a bit cold, what better way to stay warm with a tea party? Snuggle up in your favourite coat/knit dress and make a fun weekend of it with the girls in this inviting and cosy space!

Prepare to be transported into a whimsical wonderland of florals and decadent treats. Now this isn’t any high tea, it’s one with a fun twist! There is a large array of savoury bites and sweet treats - something for everyone. To accompany these you also get to choose your choice of White Rabbit signature cocktails - each one is a marvellous creation. 

Savoury Starters 

The spiced pork sausage roll has the perfect ratio of meat to pastry and was nicely spiced. An interesting creation, the asparagus wrapped in prosciutto was delicious. The sandwiches included roast chicken, apple and walnut and were all perfectly manicured and bite size. The pastries were my absolute favourite! The flavour of the tomato and caramelised onion tarts explode in your mouth and are so warm and filling.  

Sweet Treats 

Starting off was a high tea staple - the macaroons. You can’t really go wrong with these. The marshmallow tarts were gooey and tasty. The dark chocolate and peanut brownies with salted caramel icing stole the show for me. The base tastes like mud cake with a soft mousse top. The cinnamon and raspberry jam doughnuts were an extra sweet treat. The double chocolate cookies delivered on the promise of double chocolate which many cookies fail to do. 


Strawberry vermouth, Beefeater gin, vanilla, lemon juice and grapefruit bitters, topped with French sparkling wine. This comes in a cute little cup and is perfect for all those who love your drink nice and sweet! 

Woodford Reserve Bourbon, peach liqueur, spice vanilla syrup topped with iced T2 French Earl Grey tea .Another sweet favourite! This one compliments the sweets platter very well! 

Thank you to the lovely White Rabbit owner Nick Tuckwell for having me!
