The tradition of high tea dates back to Britain in the mid 1700’s. It was initially served in the late afternoon as a light meal for working class men to ward off hunger before dinner. They would take it standing up or sitting on tall stools, hence the name ‘high’ came about. Eventually, this small meal became popular with members of the aristocracy. Ladies and gentlemen would enjoy tea accompanied with small bites before heading out to the theatre. This was also around the time that sandwiches were created when the 4th Earl of Sandwich had the idea of adding a filling to two slices of bread.
At Kayumanis, high tea is provided daily for the pleasure of all in-house guests between the hours of 2.30 – 5.30 pm. It can be enjoyed in the comfort of every private villa, by the main pool or in our restaurant facilities. Kayumanis own version of high tea is elegantly presented on a three-tier platter featuring sweet tarts, mini sandwiches and a selection of unique Balinese cakes that vary every day of the week to keep things interesting.
