Lipton Singapore is inviting you to the world’s first high tea bar – a pop-up cafe/bar at Plaza Singapura Atrium from 16-21 April 2013. At this high tea bar, you’ll get to discover the art of tea and food pairing while you sample and experience different flavors of Lipton Tea. Similar to wine-pairing, tea drinkers will discover that having a harmonious combination of tea with food can uplift their mood, excite their senses and enhance their dining experiences throughout the day.
Shoppers can rest their tired post-retail therapy feet inside the high tea bar in a cozy setting. With minimum spend of $25 at Plaza Singapura or $15 worth of Lipton products in a single receipt, tea fans can redeem one Lipton High Tea Set. Redemption is only valid on the day of purchase and must be made by 830PM.

Lipton Yellow Label Tea with Lemon Maracons
The richly aromatic Lipton Yellow Label Tea delivers a full-bodied blend in a frame of soft taste. Wonderful with the butter cream-infused zesty macarons.
Lipton Forest Fruit Tea with Chicken Mini Burger
This cup of Lipton Forest Fruit Tea delivers a refreshing harmonious blend of strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant, blackberry and cherry. Heighten your experience with poached chicken served with tomatoes, fresh lettuce, mayonnaise, all enchased by a fluffy brioche.
Lipton Citrus Tea with Traditional Salmon and Cucumber Sandwich
Made with a cocktail of refreshing lemon, orange, lime and grapefruit, this cup of Lipton Citrus Tea is beautifully paired with fresh silky salmon and cucumber focaccia sandwich.
Lipton Asian White Tea with Chestnut Cassis Sponge Cake
The pleasing Lipton Asian White Tea made with a blend of white tea and green tea, mingled with rose petals complements this sweet treat of a fluffy sponge cake that’s been soaked with vanilla syrup and topped with chestnut cream infused with rum and cassis marmalade.
Lipton Blue Fruit Tea with Classic Cheesecake
The calming balance of blackberry, blackcurrant, blueberry and raspberry in the Lipton Blue Fruit Tea is a calming experience juxtaposed with a decadent experience of velvety smooth vanilla cheesecake made with fresh luscious cream cheese on a sweet crumble base.
Lipton Russian Earl Grey Tea with Le Chocolat Croustillant
The robust blend of Lipton Russian Earl Grey Tea made with gentle bergamot and sweet blue flowers puts a unique twist to your day when paired with luscious 70% Vanini Cocoa mousse layered with crispy chocolate praline.
I sampled all of the High Tea Sets and I enjoyed the different flavors of teas tremendously, my fave being the Lipton Citrus Tea which stood out the most for me. Btw, I like the pyramid-shaped teabags a lot as they not only pack real pieces of fruit and herbs, the ample space allows hot water to fully infuse the tea, better extracting its great taste, colour and aroma. So elegant. As for food, I highly recommend the melt-in-your-mouth Classic Cheesecake as well as the Le Chocolat Croustillant with its delightful crispy praline crunch.
Thought you might like to know that these High Tea Sets are created by Executive Pastry Chef at Canelé, Chef Christophe Grilo. At the Lipton High Tea Bar, I asked him which set is his personal favorite, to which he replied that he likes the Lipton Yellow Label Tea with Lemon Macaron set.
In addition to enjoying the Lipton High Tea Sets, tea enthusiasts can also learn more about tea appreciation and Lipton’s tea heritage at the Gallery area. The lovely displays and vignettes are a visual delight.
As an avid tea drinker, my experience at Lipton High Tea Bar has made me appreciate the aroma and body of their teas better and I’m inspired to experiment with tea pairing on my own at home. Be sure to check out this Lipton High Tea Bar and you’ll know what I mean. Which High Tea Sets are you eager to try?
