Tuck Shop Nostalgia Indulgence: Lennons Aussie Icons High Tea

Brace yourself to step back into your childhood as the Lennons Aussie Icons High Tea masterfully blends the cherished tuckshop treat flavours with gourmet cuisine for a new High Tea in Brisbane.

Your favourite childhood finger buns, those ones with the bright pink icing with a hint of whimsical musk, are just some of the stars, along with Lemon Drizzle Cake and classic Buttermilk Scones.

You might have thought the iconic pavlova couldn’t get any better, but Lennons surprises your palate with a coconut crunch and a touch of passionate passionfruit. It’s an elegant twist on the classics that will transport you back to those carefree days of lunchtime treats and grandma’s lovingly baked sweets.

The dense Lemon Drizzle Cake with its zesty icing is another bite-sized treat that will hit you right in the nostalgia feels.

Even your favourite vegemite scrolls make an appearance in a mini size with all the punch of vegemite and the delicious ooze of cheddar cheese.
