High Tea in Bloom

Crack open gold Easter eggs to find a puzzle made out of white chocolate inside — while sipping on pink cottontail martinis, too.

Everyone has a favourite holiday, venues included — and W Brisbane sure does love Easter. Each year, it puts on decadent high teas themed to fit the occasion. So, if you like tucking into tiny bites to eat, you'd best add a trip to this CBD venue to your must-do list.

W Brisbane's Living Room is dishing up High Tea in Bloom, a spin on its current Sunshine State high tea with an Easter twist. On the menu: gold easter eggs that you'll crack open to find a puzzle made out of white chocolate inside, as well as Queensland rum and banana cake topped with edible moss and a mini egg nest; hot cross buns with cream and spiced plum jam; and carrot, ginger and kumquat petit gateux.

On the savoury side, there's smoked duck mousse with cognac, shortcrust pastry and sumac; brioche with Townsville farmed lobster, cos lettuce and heirloom tomatoes; and Yeppoon spanner crab and wakame on rye.

But you'll probably get most excited about the booze — including pink cottontail martinis that blend Absolut vanilla vodka, white chocolate cream liqueur and strawberry syrup.

Yes, it's time to chose your pals best in need of a treat, then make a date — with these high teas kicking off from 11am–3pm Thursday–Sunday from Thursday, March 30–Sunday, March 2 and Thursday, April 6–Sunday, April 9.

If you're keen, you have three price options. Pay $70, and you'll feast your way through the food, accompanied as much tea and coffee as you can drink. Opt for the $90 option, however, you can add that aforementioned cocktail — or $99 gets you a glass of glass of Veuve Clicquot NV Brut.
