From vegan to a kids’ high tea, there are plenty of options for all.

High Tea by Cordis offers not just something for everyone, but a bunch of super-special things for everyone. Cordis gives kids something to create lovely memories with when it hosts creatively themed high teas. The first in the series, starting this month, is the Cody High Tea by Cordis, inspired by Cordis' mascot, the loveable red panda named Cody. Kids will love the bespoke menu that includes out-of-the-ordinary treats with curious names like "Down the Rabbit Hole" and "Let's Play Ball".

Also well catered for at Cordis are guests seeking vegan options. Cordis recognises the growing desire by guests to opt for vegan choices and is proud to serve a fully vegan High Tea by Cordis daily, with 24 hours' advance notice. Priced the same as the regular high tea, the vegan option is created with exactly the same level of care and creativity. Guests will love items like the sandwich with roasted capsicum, pesto and vegan cheese, and the sweet golden nutty truffle. Those after gluten and dairy-free options will be equally impressed by High Tea by Cordis – just enquire in advance and then relax in the knowledge that Cordis' talented kitchen team will spoil you very nicely.

After something a little stronger than tea? Cordis makes it easy to enjoy a refreshing drink with a number of add-ons to the regular High Tea selection. There are Cordis' famous tea-tails — alcoholic cocktails featuring Cordis' hand-blended range of tea — as well as French Champagne or sparkling wine add-ons, depending on what tickles your fancy.
