Jakarta’s Afternoon Tea Delights

Savor the end of your day with Jakarta's sumptuous Afternoon Tea complete with mouthwatering delights.


The warmth of a cup of tea, accompanied by colorful, sweet indulgences, makes afternoon tea feel like a personal treat before ending the day for me. Although highly associated with Western culture, afternoon tea is something familiar to us.

Whether it’s sipping a warm cup of tea and nibbling on crispy gorengan (fritters) or indulging in a high-tiered cake, the comfort of having an afternoon tea while engaging in warm conversation always sounds pleasant to my ear. There’s something enchanting about elevating this age-old custom into an opulent affair with three-tiered delicacies and exquisite blends of tea.

To relish the passing day and escape the hustle and bustle of Jakarta, some places offer afternoon tea experiences that can make your afternoon much more delightful.
