The snow is falling, lights are twinkling, and the air is filled with Christmas magic. The holidays are finally here, and the city is transforming into a winter wonderland. Spend the season with someone you love by enjoying some festive activities together. It's the perfect time of year to cherish those closest to you. A Toronto hotel is offering something extra special for the holidays, and it will make you feel fancier than a sugar plum fairy. Toronto's Nutcracker High Tea is the most enchanting place to go on a festive date this season.

Even tea has turned into a Christmas celebration at this hotel. The Shangri-La Toronto has transformed their traditional high tea into a Yuletide splendour worthy of Santa himself.

Take your friends, family, or loved one on an enchanting date to the Shangri-La's Lobby Lounge, where you'll be treated to a luxurious afternoon tea with a festive twist.

Inspired by the Nutcracker Ballet, the annual Nutcracker High Tea allows guests to indulge in some holiday magic and Christmas goodies.

You'll be treated to an array of lavish sandwiches such as Roasted Heritage Turkey with chestnut stuffing and cranberry sauce, and Maple Glazed Ham stacked with vintage cheddar, on a house brioche.

No high tea is complete without scones, and you can enjoy the specialty Golden Sultana soaked in Vanilla Scented Mulled Wine Spiced Scone, baked fresh from the oven. It comes with traditional clotted cream and seasonal fruit compote.

The sweet delicacies resemble a winter wonderland, with tiny Mont Blanc Christmas trees and gingerbread cookies stuffed with butter tart filling.

Indulge in traditional fruit cake, peppermint mousse, cranberry orange tart, and delicious black forest with mulled wine jam. 

Add some booziness to your experience with a complimentary glass of Kiss for Clara Cocktail, sparkling wine, or an Elderflower Fizz Mocktail.

You can choose from a wide selection of fine teas, including a festive Nutcracker Tea blend, which fills you with Christmas cheer with every sip.

The Nutcracker High Tea is $85 per person and runs until January 6.

The experience takes an hour and a half, giving you lots of time to fill up on the Christmas spirit.

To book your festive date, you can call the hotel directly.

After your tea, wander over to the Toronto Christmas Market for the perfect end to a magical day.
