High tea. Just the name itself draws upon images of posh ladies dressed to the nines sipping on china tea cups with their pinkie out. But high tea doesn’t have to be old–fashioned, in fact Orbit has changed the formula completely, straying from the traditional and adding a much more modern and sophisticated twist. Gone are the days of dry scones and pastries. Orbit welcomes a refreshing new menu.

We also offer a gluten-free, dairy-free vegetarian menu upon request. Please notify the team of your requirements when booking.

Plus we use Tea Total tea, specialists in loose–leaf tea, made to engage the senses with aromas, textures and flavourings all naturally produced to create a unique experience. Tea Total’s founder also personally guarantees its teas are fairly traded.

At 190 metres above the ground in the Sky Tower, high tea at Orbit truly is the height of sophistication. No where else in Auckland can you enjoy 360–degree panoramic views while dining.
