High tea is a tradition we brought to Australia from the British, and something we Aussies have treasured ever since. As a great opportunity to catch up with friends and take some often much-needed rest and relaxation, high tea is our own way of taking care of ourselves socially, emotionally, and—as luck would have it—gastronomically.
