The Rose Veranda at Shangri La Singapore has got to one of the better high teas and value for money 2.5 hours I have experienced in Singapore. the buffet is extensive and you can be served the traditional Scones, Jam and cream free-flow. The tea selection is what sets this afternoon tea experience apart from the others around town. There is also sushi , pork belly, a herbal chicken broth, plenty of fresh artisan breads, cold cuts, and excellent hot dishes. This is almost a lunch experience and for the price we are talking real value for money in a beautiful 5-star setting. You will also here the tones of the live piano performance from the foyer below. This is a must visit.

These are some fantastic High Tea places to experience, but can be a little on the expensive side.
