A new afternoon tea service at New Heights? Let’s give it a try.

New Heights dining room

The afternoon tea set (128 RMB), served in a glass house adjacent to the main dining room, includes two plates of sweet and savory bites, plus a cup of coffee or tea.

Afternoon Tea Set

On the savory plate, there are three finger sandwiches and a quiche. A few fancy ingredients are involved.

Mini baguette with parma ham, eggplant caviar, dried tomato, black olive

Mini bagel with smoked salmon, cucumber sauce, frisee salad

Sandwich with mimosa eggs, comte cheese and truffle

Quiche with crab and saffron

On the sweet plate, there’s scone with jam and cream, chestnut financier, mini opera cake, raspberry macaron, and a chocolate-covered strawberry.

Scone

Chestnut financier

Mini opera cake

Raspberry macaron

Chocolate-covered strawberry

While the food was not extraordinarily impressive, there’s really not much to complain about given the 128 RMB price point. I must say though, that the tea cups used at New Heights are extremely ill-designed, resulting in water spilling all over our table. This definitely needs to be changed.

Tea

New Height’s high stools aren’t conducive to long hours of sitting and the tables seem inappropriately small for the large plates, so if ambiance is what you are looking for, try afternoon tea at the Park Hyatt instead. On the other hand, if you happen to be looking for a place to grab a quick bite while strolling around in the Bund area, afternoon tea at New Heights could be exactly what you are after.

Stools

Unfortunately it was drizzling on the day of my visit, otherwise New Height’s breezy terrace should be a very pleasant stay.
