Traditional English High Tea at The Galle Face Hotel, Sri Lanka

US$10++ per person
  • In Colombo, afternoon tea at one of the oldest hotels east of the Suez pays homage to the Ceylonese past. Amid the Verandah’s colonial al fresco setting at The Galle Face Hotel, traditional English afternoon tea is underscored by fine Sri Lankan teas. Finger sandwiches, smoked salmon on rye and savory pastries are followed by dainty Nuwara Eliya strawberry shortbread, passion fruit and date cake, opera slice and papaya, lime and ginger tart desserts. The freshly baked scones stake a claim to Sri Lanka’s best, and are served with homemade jams and real clotted cream. US$10++ per person.
