Inspired by Bali’s amazing array of flavours and culture, Samsara Ubud is taking the high tea ritual and traditions to the next level. Guests can wind away the afternoon in exquisite style at Samsara Ubud with a Traditional Balinese Afternoon Tea, a haven away from the hustle and bustle and the perfect spot for an undisturbed afternoon tête-à-tête.

Served on a wooden dulang, the Traditional Balinese Afternoon Tea package includes a wide selection of savoury Balinese canapés, traditional Balinese sweets and fresh fruits. Bursting with flavours, nourishing and unique to Bali, you will find all-time favourite Balinese finger food such as Sate Lilit (grilled minced seafood or chicken wrapped on a lemongrass stalk) and Tum Ayam (steamed spiced chicken wrapped with banana leaves).

Those with a sweet tooth will be spoiled with a vast variety of Balinese sweets. The colourful medley of coconut, palm sugar, glutinous rice and bananas can be enjoyed in treats such as Laklak (rice-flour muffins with palm sugar caramel), Bubur Injin (black rice pudding with coconut milk) and Sumping (steamed rice cake in banana leaves). A pot of freshly brewed Balinese leaf teas completes the perfect afternoon. Chef Iwan and his team crafted each item in the tea set to bring aesthetic and gastronomic pleasure.
