Hansel & Gretel High Tea

Hansel & Gretel High Tea

Once upon a time, in a land of candyfloss clouds and lollipop-lined lanes, two mischievous children went out to play. A cottage of gingerbread, the very sweet toothes of the kids led them astray. Ovens fired and breadcrumbs dropped, and into the oven a bad witch popped.  

In anticipation of the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s upcoming season of Hansel & Gretel, we’re hosting a High Tea at Hippopotamus inspired by the frosted forests of Candyland, where fresh sprinkles of powdered sugar fall on toffee apple trees, and not all is quite as it seems… 

Sophisticats and witches’ hats frolic in our haven of sugared bliss. Upon three sweet tiers of porcelain treats, you’ll find raspberry and white chocolate lollipop macarons, ‘magic mushroom’ financiers, candy lane biscuits and peanut butter toffee apples. Of course, plentiful savouries are on the menu and there’s many a morsel to sample. 

In the Candyland of Hippopotamus, gluttony is no sin. Step into a world of dainty delights and sugar-spun wonder and unleash your inner child. 

$2 from every Hansel & Gretel High Tea will be donated to the Royal New Zealand Ballet, supporting their vision of providing long-term stability for ballet in Aotearoa.
