Tea and Cake
What: Storm in a Teacup
Where: 48A Smith Street, Collingwood, Vic. 3066
Afternoon Tea: A slice of the red-velvet cake and a cup of the Royal High Tea was just what I needed after a long day, and they did not disappoint.
Review: This discretely placed café and shop is a true find. The staff know their tea inside out - from the correct water temperature, to the brewing time required. Truly a pleasure for the tea lover or beginner.
Red-velvet cake is very tricky to get right, the cream cheese icing must be fluffy and thick, and the cake must be moist, but not too wet or too dry. And it was perfect!
Royal High Tea was as described; sweet and malty, and is best had with milk. A perfect cup – you really could taste the passion they put into making it.
Can’t wait to go back and try the brownies (they looked heavenly) and other teas.
