Enjoy a Balinese Inspired High Tea At Samsara Ubud


Samsara Ubud is offering your traditional Western high tea with a local twist by Chef Iwan Sutrisno and his culinary team.

When you have the urge to chat with your friends, high tea is usually the way to go. With finger sandwiches and tea, it can be quite repetitive and typical of the afternoon hangout. Samsara Ubud has taken the concept of high tea and put in their Balinese flair – in style, of course. The Traditional Balinese Afternoon Tea is the best way to have high tea but avoid all the typical high tea dishes.

Chef Iwan Sutrisno and his team created a unique Balinese high tea menu that includes a selection of tea but also combines traditional Balinese cuisine, exclusive to only Samsara Ubud. The tea can be enjoyed outdoors at a beautiful Balinese Jineng for privacy and a tranquil environment.

Beautiful traditional Juling structure

Dishes are served on a traditional wooden dulang, resembling a Western cake stand, which have beautiful meticulous carvings in the wood. The Traditional Balinese Afternoon Tea package offers a variety of savoury Balinese canapes accompanied by Balinese sweets and fresh fruit.

Among the savoury Balinese canapes are mostly handheld finger foods. Some stand out dishes are traditional sate lilit which is fresh minced seafood or chicken wrapped around a stalk of lemongrass, and tum ayam which is a well-seasoned, flavourful dish with spiced chicken and steamed in a banana leaf.

Carved wooden dulang with tea selection

Those with sweet tooths need not fret, as Balinese sweets are available and abundant at Samsara Ubud. Flavours of coconut, palm sugar, glutinous rice and bananas are apparent in the indulgent desserts. Among them are pisang goreng, dadar gulung filled with pandan, klepon stuffed with palm sugar and dodol.

The delicious Traditional Balinese Afternoon Tea is available twice a day between 2pm to 3:30pm and between 4pm and 5:30pm and isn’t limited to only villa guests! For reservations to Samsara Ubud, call +623612091769 or email reservation@samsaraubud.com.
