In the mood for something a little different this Lunar New Year? Holts Café is offering a pop-up afternoon tea experience at both of its Toronto locations with a delightful menu of savoury and sweet treats crafted by Holts’ esteemed chefs.

The menu items are classic high tea favourites with an Asian twist, like scones and toppings, bbq duck, milk cake, and egg tart paired with Sloane fine teas, a female-owned Canadian brand. The dishes are described as a combination of creative flavours and local produce.

Both the Yorkville and Yorkdale cafes are offering the high tea menus for takeout starting on January 26th and dine-in starting on January 31st.
