Maison Blue High Tea

If you know me at all then you know I am a total sucker for all things high tea. Tea, cupcakes, napkins, bite sized meals, cucumber sandwiches, decorum and ladylike chitchat. A meal enveloped in tradition, passed down from the mother country, an elegant tie to British society that completely justifies my quickly growing tea cup collection (right?).

Masion Blue is a true luncheon enthusiasts hidden gem, tucked down a small dirt road in Aldinga on the Fleurieu Peninsular, and overlooking authentic vineyards and rolling blue skies. The tea room is stunningly bedecked with french doors and all manner of shabby chic decor and sits beside the elegantly large country-style house. The feeling of seclusion is poignant, an escape of both body and mind. The trip out of the city long enough to shake the feeling of suburbia and a provide change of scene, yet close enough for a day trip without much hesitation.

Since the tea room is only available for private bookings, our group enjoyed the entire space and attentive service of the lady who lives here and runs the property, which is also a bed and breakfast in the same vein. What a fitting celebration for my dear Aunty Cata for her 50th (not that you would know it!). We had tea in beautiful tea cups, shared scones and stories and relaxed in the cool room, while viewing the sunshine and heat from behind the safety of a cup of Lady Grey.
