This lovely tea house sits at the very top of Queen Anne Hill, a long way from South Africa, indeed. But the owners of Cederberg Tea House, originally from South Africa, felt the urge to share some of the best teas and treats from their homeland. And we are lucky that they did. Of course, you can expect some fantastic teas, but Cederberg Tea House also makes sure you have plenty of sweets and savories to satiate your hunger. You’d be hard pressed to find a better treat to have with your perfectly brewed cup of tea than the Malva Pudding. A delicious caramelized sponge cake that is served up hot, the Malva is a rich dessert that is finished off with a velvety and seriously decadent cream sauce.
