Celebrate Indonesian Independence Moment with Merdeka High Tea


Sofia at The Gunawarman offered a Merdeka High Tea specially created by renowned chef Petty Elliot.

Currently it’s easy to find afternoon tea spots here in Jakarta. It’s becoming a thing where people come to take a break from the busy schedule by savoring bite-sized desserts, finger sandwich, and soft scones with fresh jam; while sipping a cup of fragrant tea.


Sofia at The Gunawarman as one of known spots for afternoon tea created Merdeka High Tea, a set of culinary delights created by chef Petty Elliot to celebrate Indonesian Independence Day. It was offered to the guest throughout August.

The Merdeka High Tea set has a selection of teas from Earl Grey, Chamomile and English Breakfast, or people can have black coffee if they need a dose of caffeine. It was all served together with the selection of food: nasi kuning with spicy and tuna arancini, mini burgers with pulled spicy chicken, ayam pop and bubur sumsum with palm sugar and cashew.


Along with it, for each portion, Sofia at The Gunawarman also contributed to Yayasan Taman Bacaan Pelangi owned by Nila Tanzil to help the organization’s effort to establish libraries in Sumba Island. A great culinary experience for a good cause; can’t get better than that.
