MELBOURNE: It’s part of Quincy Melbourne’s DNA to do things a little differently and our approach to high tea is no exception.
A quirky collaboration between Quincy and Tea Drop Tea, Quincy’s Sky-High Tea on Saturday July 23 is a reimagining of the traditional high tea, drawing culinary inspiration from Thailand, Hong Kong, and Japan.
Chef Adam Woodfield has cleverly subbed the chicken-and-mayo triangles for “Aunt Tao’s” nahm jim chicken skewers; egg and lettuce finger sandwiches for curried egg “sandos” with turmeric-cucumber pickles, swapped the lamingtons for chilli chocolate tart with coconut cream, and plain Jane black tea for sophisticated Tea Drop tea and free-flowing tea-inspired cocktails.
Served high on the 28th floor in The Q rooftop bar, Quincy’s High Tea give guests a view of the Melbourne skyline they’ve probably not seen before, while they graze through a ying/yang menu of sweet and savoury; from the Hong Kong dim sum favourite, shu mai dumplings, to a silky pandan-scented white chocolate mousse.
Quincy’s ever-creative bar staff have fashioned cocktails inspired by Tea Drop’s novel range to complement the umami, spicy, sour, and sweet flavours of the Sky-High Tea menu. Like a mandarin and Earl Grey caprioska, a Yuzu Kukicha Tom Collins and a ‘Chai – skey’ - a vegan milk-based whiskey cocktail.
And at the end of the afternoon, guests head home happy and with a goodie bag to serve as an aide memoire of a deliciously different high tea. To find out about this and other events, visit our website.

MORE ABOUT THE Q
The Q earns a standing ovation as Quincy Melbourne’s exclusive Club Lounge during the day, before turning up the glam as a publicly accessible rooftop terrace bar by night. Blessed with 360-degree views of Melbourne CBD, all the way to the Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay, The Q is all about embracing the city’s rooftop culture (sharing Level 28 with a glistening lap pool), specialising in tongue-tingling cocktails (Quincy Sling* anyone?), bar bites and share plates. Think zesty, oh-so moreish teasers of what big sister, the Salted Egg, has in store.
