Green Tea in High Tea, Azuma

Posted on Updated on

If you’ve made a trip to the Chifley Plaza, why not take tea in the Azuma Japanese restaurant after exploring or shopping inside the endless levels of designer stores.

Tucked away in the corner on the same level as  the food court,  Azuma is offering a very delicious Japanese style high tea from now until the end of August.  Prices start from $20 and it is available Monday-Friday, 2pm-5pm.

Azuma is one of the finest Japanese restaurants in Sydney and traditionally offers  their signature Sugar Hit every October for the Crave Sydney International Food Festival.

An elegant setting and comfortable seating where you might want to take a few special friends to share your tea time experience. The atmosphere was luxurious, as every high tea is supposed to be! The service was very polite and friendly. The entire experience was delightful.

For me any time is good to indulge in Kyoto High Tea ($20) per person.  A savoury and sweet bite-sized favourites presented in bento boxes and a choice of tea or coffee. For me I decided to enjoy a good cup of hot green tea.  I loved the traditional presentation which made it even more special.

One of the bento box served sushi rolls of Salad Rolls with asparagus, avocado, cucumber & shiso leaf and the other Piquant Salmon Canapés – avocado & cucumber topped with spicy salmon.  Both savoury sushi’s had a perfect  texture and flavour to it.  I’m totally addicted to the spicy salmon!

Now the sweet bento included Champagne Jelly served with seasonal fruits,  Crème Brulee,  Rolled Green Tea Cake and Gateau Chocolat. I was very surprised and exited to see all these bite sized goodies. It was a bit difficult to pick what to eat first as they looked so sweet and innocent in front of me.

A closer look at the sweets, yummy!

Crème Brulee was delicious, the top layer was perfectly caramelized . As I tapped my spoon onto the hard caramel I could hear the cracks, which is why I’d recommend eating this first.  Hidden beneath the sticky cameral consisted a rich and creamy custard base and is my absolute favourite amongst the other three sweets.

Rolled Green Tea Cake traditionally made in Japan was soft and fluffy at room temperature. I enjoyed the drizzled green tea sauce which made a beautiful finish.

The Champagne Jelly served with seasonal fruits was a perfect contrast. Looked like a mini fruit salad that tasted refreshing and a good tangy twist.

And as for the Gateau Chocolat a great classic to finish the high tea with something chocolaty. The Gateau was very warm and gooey inside like a chocolate fondant.

Needless to say the green tea was good as well served in a fancy teapot. Overall a very pleasant experience I’m willing to repeat before the promotion ends this month!

    A friend has notified me of the existence of Japanese High Tea in Sydney! You have to book beforehand though, so hopefully we can try it out later this week. :3
