Mother’s Day high tea in Sydney for 2022

The best high teas in Sydney to take your mum to for Mother's Day.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

There's something so theatrical about a high tea. The delicate teacups, the three-tiered stand heaped with delicious things to eat. It’s almost overwhelming. Soft cucumber sandwiches, warm scones with fresh cream and jam, fluffy tea cakes, sticky macarons, sweet and savoury tarts… Sorry. I got a bit carried away there.

This Mother's Day, treat your mum, grandmother or aunt to a high tea that will make her feel appreciated.
