Last week, Virgin Atlantic made headlines when it announced its latest — and probably its fanciest — collaboration for 2018: An afternoon tea service, created in partnership by master pâtissier Eric Lanlard. The tea is currently available at the airline’s Heathrow Airport clubhouse in London, will be served onboard its day flights later this year. Which means that passengers will soon be able to savour their favourite scones, macarons and finger sandwiches — washed down with steaming hot tea — 38,000 feet in the air.

But if you aren’t planning a trip to London anytime soon, fret not — you can always fulfil your afternoon tea cravings at one of Singapore’s many elegant venues. Serving up everything from Japanese-inspired desserts to Peranakan-style morsels and healthy gluten-free savoury bites, these six spots are where you need to be this 2018.
