What’s better than a slow summertime high tea? A slow summertime high tea that gifts you a complimentary Bobbi Brown lipstick!

These guys at Ostro just keep outdoing themselves: this summer, they’re celebrating sunny afternoons by bringing us a weekend high tea fit for Kate Middleton (or Meghan Markle for that matter!). To celebrate the launch of the brand new summer-inspired high tea menu this weekend, Ostro is linking up with cult beauty favourite Bobbi Brown to gift a gorgeous free lip colour to the first 50 lucky ladies to book their spots at tea. Grab your phones, girls, and book now, because you’re not going to want to miss this one!

Chefs Josh Emett and Daniel Na have redefined decadence with this experience. The tea menu comes in towers of perfect savouries and decadent sweets: this is not your gran’s cuppa. Featuring treats like glorious bacon and caramelized onion scones topped with maple butter, mini-croissant sandwiches with champagne ham and basil pesto, spicy prawns on brioche and roast mushroom and parmesan quiche, you’ll be begging for seconds. But save room, because the sweets lineup is just as strong. Between fresh takes on classics like cranberry orange scones and festive peppermint chocolate macarons to mouth-watering modern concoctions like charcoal pavlova with summer berries and green tea opera cake, you’ll be spoiled for choice. High tea starts at just $55 per person, but feel free to upgrade by adding a glass of Nicolas Feuillatte ($70) or straight to the top with a flute of Veuve Cliquot ($75). This is definitely a menu that will make your Insta followers go wild with envy!

For this weekend only, Bobbi Brown Britomart is treating the 50 first ladies on the list to a complimentary lipstick, plus a chance to win a makeup party for four. Lipstick vouchers are redeemable at Bobbi Brown Britomart and if you’re the lucky winner of the draw, you’ll be notified by 31st December. So, gals, go ahead. Treat yourself to a high tea at Ostro, score a bold lippy and launch your fabulous self into the summertime spirit!
