What started as a British ritual of socializing over snacks and tea, a bridge between meals lunch and supper, the idea of Afternoon Tea or High Tea has been embraced by many around the world. We pick the best spots in Jakarta to find the best pair of high quality tea and a selection of scrumptious sweets and savory snacks:
