I haven’t had afternoon tea in years so it’s about time I tried it again. After doing some research, it seemed like Neverland Tea Salon was a good option based on price, food portions and ambiance. They even serve vegan and dairy free versions of their afternoon tea. If you’re not feeling too hungry, you can order their “demi-tea” which is a smaller version of their afternoon tea with less food items.
My friend and I arrived half an hour late due to traffic congestion from road closures because the Sun Run was happening that day so we felt slightly rushed as the seating time limit is only 1.5hrs. However, that was our fault. We ordered the Grande Adventure High Tea ($38/person) and the food came right away. Neverland Tea Salon offers unlimited tea so you can try as many as you can drink in that time.
On the bottom we have the savoury options: Asparagus and feta mousse on a croissant, lemon herb mascarpone, cucumber and arugula sandwich, proscuitto, pear and brie on a mini burger, Thai curry egg salad sandwich and a tarragon chicken salad sandwich.
My favourite of the savouries was the proscuitto, pear and brie mini burger that was served warm. I thought the croissant would be my favourite but I think some of the asparagus pieces I had were a bit stringy which detracted from the taste. Otherwise I enjoyed everything except the cucumber and arugula sandwich as it was the most bland option relatively speaking.
For the dessert tier aka my favourite tier, we had a strawberry vanilla shortcake, pandan tart, orange dome cake with white chocolate mousse and a passion fruit cheesecake.
I thought the best item was the passion fruit cheesecake as I enjoyed the sweet but slightly tart flavour with the creamy texture. The pandan tart barely had any filling in the tart shell so it was a bit disappointing. The orange dome cake had a very soft and smooth texture to it with some orange flavoured filling inside the white chocolate mousse. The strawberry vanilla shortcake was very soft in texture and super moist so it was hard to pick up but flavourwise you do get that strawberry jam flavour.
Lastly we had the Citrus Scones which were fluffy and buttery on the inside with hints of citrus. I’m always afraid the scone might be really hard but these were great! I’m always afraid the scone might be really hard but these were great!
Neverland Tea Salon had a long tea list so I’m sure you’ll find something you like here. I personally prefer black teas and normally gravitate towards teas like English Breakfast or Earl grey. For my first teapot, I chose the Heavenly Cream with notes of vanilla and bergamot. I also tried the Madame Grey which was described as a vibrant Ceylon with three kinds of citrus and a hint of lavender. I asked for them to provide some milk on the side as well.
My friends and I enjoyed our visit here and the interior is lovely for photos. If we come back, we’ll know to be on time!
