Saldechin, for me, is great in parts. The food menu is wide and varied, and the foods pretty good.
Thirty-two teas places it in good stead, you would think.
The problem I have is that the teas are all Chinese (OK, so it’s a Chinese tea room) and heavily favour greens and oolongs. There’s chrysanthemums and jasmines. There’s flavoured oolongs and greens. There’s an un-named white (looked to be Pai Mu Tan from a few tables away)
Price-wise, the teas are a little steep (hah!). A pot for two is twice the price of elsewhere for some of the fancier teas, and while it’s actually a pretty large pot, it’s not the nest value.
However, the venue is amazing. Built in the foyer of the original 1800’s ANZ bank, it’s full of marble and elegance.
It’s worth a visit for the ambience. They also have things like free jazz, high teas and a fair bit of alcohol if you are so inclined.
