Rosemary Hill is one of the very few establishments in South Africa that offer an authentic Morning or Afternoon Tea (or High Tea) experience. Rather than providing a buffet and expecting guests to help themselves, our teatime treats are freshly prepared for your enjoyment and presented on elevated tiers with beautiful freshly picked herbs and flowers from our gardens. Each individual treat is made and served with special attention. Our fine selection of blended loose leaf teas are brought to the table in special tubes so that guests can experience the beautiful aromas before making a choice.
We specialise in tea parties – from Bridal Tea Parties, Stork Tea Parties, little girl themed Tea Parties and Christenings to more intimate tea for two or even ‘Me-time-Tea-time’ where you can bring your book, and spend the afternoon sitting under the tree, reading, eating and drinking tea …
Tea is served on the following days and times by appointment only (and subject to availability) at R135 per person
Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (for groups of 10 or more) at 14h00 – 16h00
Saturdays (for groups of 2 to 40) at 10h00 – 12h00 or 11h00 – 13h00 only
