Every month, Azalea Restaurant changes its theme for their high tea afternoon. This month of September, their theme is Filipino where they have selections of beef congee (goto), maja blanca, puto, sandwiches, tarts and pasta (both tomato-based and cream-based).
The high tea afternoon at Azalea Restaurant is more like a merienda buffet where you go to the buffet table and get the food that you would like to eat. The tea is not self-serve though. You need to order it. They have five tea selections that are freshly made. 🙂 Their tea selections are: Lemongrass, Lemon, Orange, Ginger, and Pandan.
I was able to try the Lemongrass tea which was served to me in a small tea cup. Sharlyne was able to try the Pandan tea.
From the various food selections, I tried the beef congee (goto) and the maja blanca. The congee would be a great snack to have in Tagaytay especially when it’s a bit cold or during the rainy season. Their maja blanca is a must try for those who would like to have something sweet. 🙂
The price of 249 pesos per head seems reasonable enough. By the way, the afternoon high tea is available during Fridays and Saturdays. If you’ll be coming to Tagaytay in a couple of months, their theme for October is European (quiche, puddings, pies, custards, tarts) while their theme for November is Internationale (combination of American, Filipino, Euro-continental). In-house guests may avail of this with a 10 percent discount. 😀
Azalea Restaurant is just located near the lobby of One Tagaytay Place. Thank you One Tagaytay Place and Azalea Restaurant for this high tea afternoon experience. 🙂
