The Raffles Afternoon Tea Experience

The refined ritual of Afternoon Tea originated, like Raffles Singapore, in the 19th century. At first an aristocratic British invention, the experience journeyed to Asia during the Golden Age of Travel, where it remains a cherished tradition to this day. Take your seat for the classic combination of wafer-thin finger sandwiches, home-baked scones, exquisite cakes and seasonal delicacies – all elegantly presented on a classic three-tier silver stand and complemented by a curated collection of teas and champagnes.
