I love the lobby lounge at the Intercontinental. It's effortlessly elegant, understated and peacefully tranquil. Everything an afternoon tea lounge should be, but without the pretentious tai-tais or posturing wannabes.
We'd just eaten lunch, so we declined partaking in the afternoon tea, and opted for the ala carte menu of premium teas and shared dessert from a compact menu.
The Brownies Chantiny ($8) was a rich and moist drak chocolate fudge cake topped with marshmallows and a chocolate straw.
Surprisingly yummy cookies were served alongside the fruity Eternal Summer Rooibios Tea ($15) and floral Rose Bourdoir Black Tea ($15).
