The Star Sydney’s new venue has pot of tea for $120 on the menu

The Star Sydney has opened a quirky new bar on the ground floor of the Astral Hotel.

G&Tea offers a menu celebrating a range of artisan tea and gin. Among the menu items is the highly prized Yellow Gold Tea Buds by TWG, coming in at $120 a pot. Its platinum-coloured buds are transformed into ambrosial jewels plated with 24-karat gold and the tea is served in an exclusive Gong Fu Tea Ceremony, conducted by a qualified and dedicated Tea Master.

The G&Tea mixologists have crafted a selection of Tea-Tails including the Green Tea Mojito with Green Tea, Tanqueray, Basil Seeds, Soda, Mint; the Tea Tini with Jing Green Apple Hibiscus Tea, Ink Gin, Vermouth, Lemon Peel and the Passionfruit Green Tea Whiskey.

A food menu is available featuring a range of gourmet sandwiches.

“The launch of G&Tea is another stunning example of our commitment to creating thrilling experiences for our guests and to transforming The Star into Sydney’s premier dining and entertainment destination,” said Dino Mezzatesta, chief operating officer of Hotels, Food & Beverage and Retail at The Star.

“The team has married the beautifully crafted space with a menu that is a playful yet sophisticated fusion of the finest flavours, guaranteed to see guests become lost in the wonderful world of tea and gin.”
