Afternoon Tea in Cameron Highlands Resort @ Jim Thompson Tea Room



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.

  1. Gosh Cheah, I haven't been to Cameron ages. I remember the last time I was there. Hubby & his 4x4 gang driving all the way from Gua Musang across the unfinish highway straight to Cemeron. We were crossing under the bridge since it has yet fully built up. The sight is really beautiful along the way. But next time, I want to try going there from Simpang Pulai. :o)

    1. Yes, we also drove to Gua Musang from Cameron Highlands a few years back. Beautiful scenery, lushful greenery with so many bamboo trees along the way, reminds me of the movie, Crouching tiger, hidden dragon.

  4. I like visiting Cameron Highlands more than Genting Highlands. The 1st ever weekend stay that I had with my hubby when we were dating was Cameron Highland & that was 14 years ago & we stayed at the Heritage Hotel. Not sure whether this hotel still exists! Your high tea food look very yummy compare to the one that I had been recently.

    1. Yes, I too agree with you. The environment in CH is more natural and the air is cool and fresh although there are lots of development there. Heritage Hotel is still there in Tanah Rata. I consider the afternoon tea @ Jim Thompson tea room to be a bit on the high side.

Peach Resin Snow Fungus Dessert ~ 桃胶雪耳糖水

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.
