Cape Town’s Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa recently introduced a new Vegan High Tea option at the at the sophisticated Leopard Bar.
The introduction of Vegan High Tea follows on from the success of the hotel’s Vegan Tasting Menu, launched last year.
Diners can look forward to a selection of sandwiches and tortilla wraps with fried aubergines, roasted peppers and marinated tomato. Or on the sweeter side, forest berry jellies, Valrhona Manjari chocolate and peanut bons bons, and banana and oat cookies.
High tea traditionalists will not be disappointed with the Valrhona Manjari chocolate and hazelnut cake and a vegan take on scones – with jam and mixed berry compote.
The actual tea alone offers some beautiful loose leaf infusions; such as the Orange and Spices with rooibos, cinnamon, cardamon, cloves, vanilla and orange or the Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearl scented oolong. While the delightful little morsels, all beautifully presented, include a mix of savoury and sweet treats.
The Vegan High Tea is available daily in the Leopard Bar and Conservatory from 10h00 to 16h00. Booking is essential.
