Betjeman & Barton, the French tea expert has finally landed in Malaysia as part of their expansion plan in South East Asia. Since 1919, this fine teahouse is bringing together best teas from the world’s greatest tea gardens and plantations. The One Utama outlet is located closer to One World Hotel, just across Johnny’s Steamboat.
With more than 50 tea varieties in store, one is easily spoilt with choices when it comes to choosing between the Classic Tea, Perfumed Tea and Herbal Tea derived from red, black, green and white tea.
Remember to ask their waitstaffs to walk you through their varieties of tea leafs, as we learnt so much about tea drinking culture through the process. My favourite has to be fruits infused tea, as B&B uses only premium natural dried fruits and the aroma is so inviting.
B&B’s beautiful tea canisters packed with tea leafs make great gifts for friends and families too. I will be very happy to receive any one of these!
We were here for afternoon tea (RM 60 for 2 pax) and as part of the set, we got t0 choose from their signatures: Puchkine, Luzury, Comomllie, Malasherbes and Roorbush Jardin Rouge.
We opted for Rooibush Jardin Rouge which is red tea blended with rose, strawberry, vanilla and grapefruit. Each pot is sufficient for four cups.
The three layer afternoon tea came with mini croissants, chicken ham buns, chicken ham sandwiches, tiramisu, assorted danish, artisan chocolates and macarons.
I adore how delicate the chef made the pastries to be, just nice to pop into our mouth, one at a time. The mini croissants were really good, as B&B’s pastry chefs uses premium French butter. The tiramisu was very creamy and delicious too, however the macarons were too sweet for my likings.
We also tried a few of B&B’s tea infused cakes.
The Jardin Rouge Gateau is infused with Jardin Rouge tea with a mixture of rose, strawberry, vanilla and grapefruit. It was creamy and rich in chocolate taste, which overpower the Jargin Rouge tea as we were expecting some light hints of tea taste.
We have not done this (afternoon tea) for a very long time. Even KampungBoy told me that B&B is a very charming tea room for a romantic tête-à-tête.
