Afternoon Tea at the Mandarin Oriental Axis Bar & Lounge, 5 Raffles Avenue, Singapore 039797

A perennial favourite and mainstay in the afternoon high tea scene would be Mandarin Oriental’s daily Afternoon Tea set from Axis Bar and Lounge on Level 4 that’s available from 3pm to 5pm on weekdays/weekends and 12.30-2.30pm on weekends. Priced at $42++ per person and $80++ for two, it consists of a single tea selection from TWG (refillable) and 4 courses of dainty treats (non-refillable) from sweet to savoury, which changes on a monthly basis.

The bar/lounge was brightly lit during the late afternoon with French windows overlooking out to Marina Bay, though the view is more of the skyline than from top-down. Enjoy the lively atmosphere as ladies get together to catch up and enjoy light bites over fragrant pots of tea. 

While the items on the set might change monthly, items like their citrus cinnamon and Madagascar golden raisin scones with clotted cream and jam probably will remain because they are so delicious and well-made.  

For those who are fans of interesting food combinations you can look out for ingredients like yuzu and pineapples to be used with Manuka Aioli and foie gras.

I had fun enjoying the little creations with my friend! I'll definitely recommend Axis for its classic high tea sets at an affordable price that goes for the ambiance and amount of food.
