On my recent trip to the Cameron Highlands we stopped by at the Cameron Highlands Resort and adjourned for tea @ the Jim Thompson Tea room. The Cameron Highlands Resort was formerly Merlin Hotel but had changed hands and had undergone extensive reburfishment and makeover. We had stayed there before many, many years ago so we just had to stop by and take a look at this hotel again.
Afternoon tea was served here. There wasn't much of a crowd, maybe it was a week day.
Tea is served in this tea room daily from 3 pm to 6 pm and it's Rm60 ++ for 2 persons or RM35 ++ per person. We placed our order for 2 persons to be shared amongst the four of us as we just had lunch at Tanah Rata not long ago. Our choice of tea were Peppermint, English Breakfast and Earl Grey.
The delicacies were presented on a 3 tier stand.
An assortment of cakes ~ fruit cake, lemon cake, strawberries and cream cake, chocolate layered cake and I call this the pyramid cake which tasted a bit like mousse.
Savoury sandwiches ~ tuna, smoked salmon, eggs & cress and cream cheese & cucumber.
Fresh local Cameron Highlands strawberries and chocolate dipping sauce.
I like this piece of chocolate layered cake, not too sweet and yummy with the white choc topping.
Last but not least, English scones served with homemade strawberry jam and clotted cream. These scones were a bit of a disappointment for neither they were warm nor fluffy but the strawberry jam made up for it. The best scones that I've ever tasted were from here. Piping hot and fresh from the oven.
And I'll add two more pictures here. It's a small boutique near to the Tea room where you can purchase some souvenirs or pamper yourself with some Jim Thompson silk shirts, bags etc. availabe for both He and She.
We didn't stay in this hotel but we stayed here ........ Hotel De'La Ferns.
