The Russian Tea Garden
A time-honoured ritual. A contemporary expression.
We are taking a short winter break from July 7 to early August and plan some exciting surprises for you when we reopen. The Babushka Deli (with a smaller menu), Family MTB Park, Wonderdal Edutainment Centre and the WonderTruck food stall will still be open, but the Avant-Garde Restaurant, the Russian Tea Garden, the Wine Tasting Lounge and the Marvol Gallery will be closed during this period. Please consult the relevant website pages as well as Facebook for more details and operating times.
High tea will never be the same after experiencing Hazendal’s Russian Tea Ceremony in Hazendal’s Russian Tea Garden. Spanning generations, Russian tea-drinking has become an integral part of the country’s culture, highlighting the principles of friendship and warm hospitality. During Hazendal’s Russian Tea Ceremony, a specially sourced and imported black Russian tea blend is served from a steaming Samovar (ornate Russian tea urn) and presented in traditional hand-painted porcelain tea sets from the Dulevo porcelain factory, one of the oldest and most famous porcelain producers in Russia. The tea ritual is a visually intriguing experience that breathes new life into age-old tea brewing customs. Little guests can enjoy a specially designed tea menu and show off their artistic talents with Russian-themed colouring-in pages. With each table donning a distinct table setting, and the garden’s relaxed atmosphere, Hazendal’s Russian Tea Ceremony is a culturally rich and exquisite experience for young and old.
Walk-in guests who have not pre-booked for the Russian Tea Ceremony, can enjoy the Garden Menu in the beautiful and tranquil garden.
