Bali’s Best “High Tea” Served Everyday at Biku in Kerobokan


(12/21/2012)

A relaxing, popular tradition awaits Bali residents and visitors alike each afternoon at Biku – a unique combination of a tea lounge, restaurant, antique gallery and bookstore located in Kerobokan, Bali.

Afternoon Tea – a “High Tea” to be more precise, is served every day at Biku. A sophisticated tradition traced in its origins to the Duchess of Bedford who sought a pick-me-up each late afternoon.

Servants brought the Victorian era Duchess pots of tea that, with time, were supplemented with bakery items. Later,  following the European tradition, the Duchess invited friends joining her tea parties at Belvoir Castle to partake in an afternoon meal at 5:00 pm where cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, sweets and teas were served.

The rejuvenating qualities of afternoon tea and cakes quickly established this repast as an English tradition, with the upper classes taking the ritual a step further, presenting “high teas” at which an exotic range of teas and lavish snacks are tastefully presented.

The rustic sophistication of Biku with wooden dining tables set amidst antiques and a bookstore is home to a daily sumptuous “high tea” served there throughout the day.

For Rp. 85,000 plus tax and service (US$10), those taking tea can sup on a selection of fine teas; scones served with jam and cream; finger sandwiches of cucumber, salmon and cream cheese; ham and mustard; mini spinach quiche and a range of sweets.

Underlining Biku’s commitment to detail and to families, a children’s tea menu costing Rp. 40,000 plus tax and service (US$4.80) features a pint-sized version of “high tea” substituting fruit tea or juice as the beverage with a presentation of enchantingly presented side plates of cakes and sweets.

Those on holiday or celebrating a special occasion can also select from a range of limited edition teas and order Champagne by the glass.

Reservations recommended. Call +62-(0)3610 8570 888 or [Email
