High Tea in Colombo 2018.

Forget The Beatles, James Bond, Wimbledon, roast dinners and the Harry duo (Potter and Prince of Wales) – if there's anything that boasts the Britishism, it's their mean cuppa tea. Traditionally speaking, high tea is the afternoon tea version of the upper-class Brits, which has become the three-tier affair that we indulge today alongside a piping hot kettle of tea. 
Whether it's a simple celebration of a special occasion or a hangout session with your best buddies/colleagues, high tea in Colombo is quite popular. From restaurants to high-end hotels, here's everything you should know about it.
