Revisited this place for afternoon tea and currently, it’s $30.00++ per set. This month’s Imperial High Tea menu features abalone in almost all their items.

It’s green tea with jasmine. The aroma of jasmine was really nice, but it didn’t linger for long with multiple brews.

It seems like Chinese afternoon tea is getting popular because the tea session at Tian Fu Tea Room seems to be a lot more packed than it was 2 years ago.
While the food standard more or less remained the same, the service was less polite, snappy and inattentive this time too. The water for refilling tea was not even hot enough for brewing and I had substandard tea throughout. The staff didn’t seem to care.
I really hope that the restaurant can take note of their current service standards and also disallow overbooking for afternoon tea. The tea section was full and some customers were made to sit at the main restaurant area and personally it doesn’t feel like afternoon tea sitting there.
Perhaps I’ll choose to Parkroyal Beach Road‘s outlet next time.
