I see you reading the title and looking all confused. High Chai ? YES simply translated means High Tea. But this is a High Tea with an Indian Twist.
Tea is a big feature in an Indian home which I shared earlier on my blog Tea in the Indian home. So crafting a High Tea menu with an Indian twist just makes sense. Jeera’s Executive Chef Sandren Govender is the brainchild behind creating this unique High Tea.
I love the traditions and history of High Teas High Tea a very a British Tradition , so on seeing the Indian High Tea at Jeera the SpiceGoddess knew she needed to experience this. So as part of my Birthday Month celebrations we booked this experience.

Now that you know how to book ,have a look at this menu. Reading through the menu makes one hungry. The fusion of Indian and Western flavours makes this menu so unique. A selection of tea treats include sweet and savoury so there is something for all taste buds as well as a beautiful collection of Tea for you to drink.
My Experience :
The booking was fairly easy to do and my main concern was, that three members of our party were vegetarian. I was told that all guests would be catered for and I should not worry.
The day arrived and we headed off for what I termed my High Chai party.We were welcomed by a beautiful hostess dressed in Indian traditional clothing. The tables were set one for the selection of teas and the other were we would sit while sampling this great fusion menu.
The waiter and Head chef assigned to our table welcomed us and explained the sumptuous menu. Everything looked so beautiful and we could not wait to tuck into our Indian High Tea. Everything thing was beautifully presented and tasted divine.
A selection of Aromatic Teas were offered. I sampled a few but the Spice Goddess opted for a traditional Masala Chai as the perfect accompaniment to my treats.
With such beautiful treats and great service this afternoon was defo one for the memory books. The Indian High Tea is perfect for your next Girl’s Catch up or even spoiling your family. Jeera’s Indian High Tea is worth the experience of an eastern and western High Tea. I will be back to share this with my Girls soon.
