Nourish Me High Tea with Antipodes at QT Wellington

Fancy yourself a glow-getter? Indulge in a deliciously darling glow up with sustenance for spirit and skin at our Nourish Me High Tea with Antipodes. From the outside, in, it’s all about self-care darlings!

For twelve glowing weeks, visages are radiantly rebalanced and revitalised with a menu inspired by the native bioactive ingredients found in Antipodes skincare. Think flaxseed and avocado tarts, kawakawa and orange duck croquettes, and banana, kiwi and honey cake with pineapple crisp to nourish and delight. There’s kefir-laden lox bagels and citrus tarts with kombucha gel to harness the power of microbiotic marvels. And for the skin? You’ll take home a full-sized Antipodes Culture Probiotic Night Recovery Water Cream.

Sip pretty in Hippopotamus harbourview sparkle with a selection of T2 tea, or fabulous fizz if you please.

Dew your skin a service, and come get cultured at ours.
