My Thousand Ringgit Betjeman and Barton Afternoon Tea

I don't believe I have afternoon tea that's billed up to RM1000 before.

To be exact, the bill came up to RM1229 between 4 people. It was awesome.
Okay. Granted. We all brought back some gifts of our own: a musical tea box with our own favourite tea each (with cost like RM200+ sans the tea leaves). And myself a golden spoon! Read on.

24k gold plated.

It was high time the girls and one guy and I caught up for a tea session before Cindy leave for her Singapore trip. And it's been a while. So while we were choosing a place, I brought up a new tea place and we had Betjeman and Barton arranged a tea session for us one afternoon.

could see a weirdly distorted face of Cindy here lol

The fun thing about visiting Betjeman and Barton is that the staff will bring you on a mini tour around the shop introducing their teas, all imported from France, and having you smell each and every one of their best selling. It's my favourite thing to do really whenever I bring a new friend to the shop.

Most of their teas smell heavenly and some really uniquely and it made you want to sit down and have an entire afternoon just trying tea. Before I became allergic to caffeine, I was a mega tea fan, and the fact that there are so many non-caffeinated options in Betjeman & Barton made me relieved my addiction. You know how you always get limited choice when you opt for the less than mainstream flavor, you never get cherry or vanilla flavor coke light, you get coke light, that's it, maybe coke zero, which is worse. For non-caffeinated tea it's always camomile and the usual fruit fusion teas, I don't mind camomile but I'm definitely not a fan of fruit teas.

But here there are just so many options. If I had to choose, I would say my favourite would be the Rooibush Jardin Rouge (flavored with strawberry and rose and lavender, etc); which I got one for myself in the end.

collectibles of teapots, I saw priced at RM999. Wow.

one of their two best sellers

I had to applaud Betjeman and Barton for their delicious cakes. Each one more decadent than the next. It's quite affordable and the taste is just heavenly. I love the banana chocolate mousse cake most.

This is some tea extract drink brought in from France, I wanted to try this but maybe another time. I was so stuffed at this point. And then there was more coming.

macaroons! Black sesame and passion fruit if I'm not mistaken.

We could only manage a small bite of each flavor at this point.

It didn't stop me from wandering over to the chocolate shelf. Old habit die hard. How could I not? It was visually tantalizing. I guess I'll have to come back again to try these.

The moment of truth! The breakdown of our total bill:

So a massive chunk went to our Tea For Two musical box and tea leaves (50g each) & my golden tea strainer spoon; technically the tea sets here were really affordable, but the total bill was still pretty heart stopping. LOL.

My brought home gift:

It was close to Valentines and this was just so suitable for the occasion.

Look how gorgeous my Rooibush tea looked. Mad love.

  1. I'm not that big a fan of tea, but they sure have a great selection! And I love the blue tit teapot design! Would probably just display it in a cupboard if I had one :P

  2. I love your hair. And I love tea. So this post pretty much made my day (:
