High tea — or afternoon tea — sessions are a quintessentially British tradition –and we all know how seriously the Brits take their tea. Here in Singapore, the old tradition has been continued with much gusto with a variety of restaurants offering these options for friends to while away the afternoons in style.

The best thing about an afternoon tea, or high tea, is not just the delicious pastries and savoury snacks you have the opportunity to indulge in, it’s the idea that you have all the time in the world, to relax, chat with friends and sip tea to your heart’s content — after all isn’t time the ultimate luxury?

We’ve rounded up 10 of our favourite, most indulgent Afternoon Tea sets for one to enjoy. Take these as a temptation to sneak out of work for an afternoon and enjoy a good catch up with friends (just don’t say it was our idea).
