As a tea lover, I am very inclined to give the review on the tea tour and high tea experience a 100 if only TripAdvisor wasn’t restricted to a 5 star rating. Sarah, our tour host, was very knowledgeable and passionate in engaging us with the history of Zealong. The tea was definitely of high quality and needless to say the high tea was incredible. We were very tempted to take some desserts back with us!

We booked the 9:30 tour and high tea package. The walk through the estate was great, the landscape amazing and the tea making course completed the tour. About the high tea we can only say it was excellent, each and every piece carefully crafted. All the staff we interacted with was very polite and helpful, We had a wonderful stay and hope to visit again. Many thanks to Liam, our knowledgeable guide, for making this a memorable experience.

Unbelievable good tour, and an even more spectacular high tea (we had the vegetarian one). Not to be missed! You are bound to be surprised with this organic, award winning tea!

Hight tea for 2?..How romantic..how decadent!

We visited the Tea House for afternoon tea and it was everything we expected.

Stunning vistas, relaxing ambiance, gorgeous weather, delicious teas and attentive staff..what more could you ask for?!

I have been wanting to come here for a while now and it was well worrh it. Sure its probably the most expensive afternoon teas I've ever had but hey its a unique experience and not the kind of place most people would go every weekend.

So i recommend you just kick back relax and enjoy a true treat.

Thank you to all the staff for a lovely experience and keep up that high standard of service.

If you love tea with a difference this is the place to visit, three of us called in just for Tea as we didn't have a lot of time, but what an experience, from meeting a lovely Italian chap on reception to all of the friendly staff that were either busy doing their jobs or serving the tea, such an excellent selection, a couple on the next table to us had a three tier cake stand filled with the most delicious looking cakes and sandwiches, you might think it a tad expensive but it is so worth it, it is also a restaurant and venue and they also do tours of the state, next time we are down there we will book up and be pampered with their yummy food and excellent service.
