Oh, to live the tai tai life. I’ve got my eyes and ears constantly peeled for indulgent high tea sets, and of course, Tarte by Cheryl Koh’s bringing us a delightful Premium Korean Strawberry Afternoon Tea set. I wouldn’t expect anything less from the famed bakery that is, after all, renowned for its unfailing, delicious treats.

The Premium Korean Strawberry Afternoon Tea (S$60 per person) is a towering tower of pure bliss, so I suggest you strap in for the list of menu items to come. The set is divided into three sections—savoury, sweet, and bakes.

Savoury Tarts & Tea Sandwiches

Working our way from bottom-up, starting with the savoury is always great to whet your appetite. Ironic as it is, my favourite part of any set is always my darling savoury bites, and today we’ve got the Scottish Smoked Salmon in a Brioche Bun, Egg Mimosa Croissant Sandwich, Mushroom Tartlet, and Bacon and Gruyère Quiche.

Each a succinct celebration of umami goodness, picking a favourite is like declaring your favourite child. Still, the mushroom tartlet and bacon and gruyere quiche both stand out a little more, possessing a great balance of flavour even within such a tiny palm-sized treat.

French Pastries, Tartlets & Desserts

Here is where you’ll find the Merryqueen Strawberry Tartlet with Tahiti Vanilla Cream, Dark Chocolate Choux Puffs, Jukhyang Strawberry Tiramisu, Fresh Jukhyang Strawberries with Rosé Jelly and Coulis, and finally, the Merryqueen Strawberry and Lemon Cake.

In case you’re on the brink of getting all strawberr-ied out, I suggest pacing yourself during these top two tiers or interspersing bites with the savoury bites from before or your handy tea or coffee.

On the side, a Strawberry Croissant and Jukhyang Strawberry Danish Pastry is served along with Fresh Whole Jukhyang Strawberries in Chocolate Ganache and Lemon Curd dips. Don’t miss out on trying these magnificent strawberries in all their glory, especially balanced out by the mildly sweet chocolate ganache. If you’re trying to steer clear of acidity, however, then you might want to pair the lemon curd with something else instead, because I can almost promise you that the strawberries with lemon will leave you scrunched up in aversion.

Jukhyang Strawberry Drinks 

Not only that—if you’re truly looking to milk the strawberry experience, there are three strawberry-based drinks to choose from to really max out your time there. Namely, there’s the Homemade Strawberry Milk, Dairy-free (S$12), Strawberry Ice Tea (S$9), and Strawberry Lemonade (S$9) to go with your berry hearty meal.


Only 20 sets are available daily, and a minimum of two sets must be purchased in a seating. That aside, pre-orders and bookings have to be made at least 48 hours in advance, so hurry, snag a reservation to avoid any disappointment.
