The afternoon tea set comes with refillable coffee or tea! But you have to stick with the same choice of tea or coffee for refill. 

The service here was average as some of the staff were not very attentive, have to try a few times to catch their attention. Only the lady manager was more alert & professional. But the staff were very polite and made an effort to explain to us what are the high tea items. The latte here was very premium quality! My partner told me this was the BEST latte among so many hotels! So do try their latte when you're there. I would say this is the BEST high tea that you should try..

Tea-time continues to refresh and entertain. It’s comforting to know that in such a frantic, fast-paced city, everything can still stop for tea. This time, we dropped by Fairmont’s glitzy Anti:dote Lounge anticipating a splendid afternoon of petite treats and tête-à-tête.


The savories and desserts were generally decent. What was most unforgiving was the indifferent service. There was about 8 staff on duty and only 2 tables occupied, but none of them bothered to clear our plates after the first course. Moreover, it took ages to catch someone’s attention for the bill. Overall, we did not have a pleasant experience at Anti:dote.
3 sets are available on the menu; all are the same except for the first course. Choose from black truffle scrambled eggs, assorted dim sum or salmon blinis with caviar. Each set is priced at $38++ and is inclusive of one pot of TWG tea (non-refillable). If the tea that catches your eye is worth more than $12.50, a top up of the difference is required.
From the list of close to 40 teas, we ordered a fragrant Genmaicha (Japanese green tea blended with roasted and popped rice) and ethereal White House Tea (white tea blended with fruits and roses).

The Anti:dote tea set features a single scrambled egg, glittered with black truffle, made completed with crisps buttery toast sticks. The lusciously creamy egg had a distinct woody aroma which lingered. Impossible not to love!

The Oriental tea set comes with a traditional wooden basket of Scallop Siew Mai, Shrimp Har Gau, Chive dumpling which my dining companion thoroughly enjoyed.
The rest of the food arrived uniquely presented in a classy white leather jewelry drawer chest. Each drawer is packed with dainty treats. My dining companion avoids alcohol so the chef swapped the alcoholic desserts for handmade chocolate truffles.


The savory drawer features 5 different varieties of sandwiches-
Prosciutto, onion jam and aged cheddar
 Cucumber and dill salad, cream cheese (rye bread spoilt it for me)
 Coronation curried chicken
 Boston Lobster rolls with herb mayonnaise
 Smoked Salmon with caviar and crème fraiche

The most outstanding was the Boston Lobster Roll, featuring chucks of fresh lobster meat hubbed by a pillowy soft bun. Every mouthful was a delight!


Fluffy, light and crusty candied ginger and raisin scones were pretty good too; I particularly enjoyed the former with the homemade strawberry jam, Devonshire clotted cream and lemon curd. The Lemon Basil Pound cake and cookies didn’t quite make an impression though.


As for desserts, we had…

The Food Modern English high tea is the style at Anti:dote, so expect some Scones, Éclairs and Sandwiches in the high tea stet. There is the Anti:dote Tea Set or the Oriental Tea Set ($38) each, which comes with a selection of TWG tea. The only difference between the two sets is that the Anti:dote set comes with the additional Antidote black truffle scrambled eggs while the Oriental set comes with Dim Sum such as Shrimp Har Gau, Chive Dumpling and Scallop Siew Mai.
The highlight was definitely the Anti:dote High Tea Set which we had. The presentation was perfect and absolutely as pretty as a high tea could get. Anti:dote has impressed me with the high quality high tea set, cosy ambience as well as the effortless food presentation.
