Afternoon tea getting a makeover
    2017-August-4  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

FOUR Seasons Hotel Hong Kong offers an afternoon tea experience to rival the best of London. Now aficionados have another reason to visit, as the afternoon tea concept is getting a makeover that will elevate the art of tea in this storied tradition to a new level.

Since the hotel opened in 2005, guests at The Lounge, the all-day dining restaurant of Four Seasons, have spent blissful afternoons nibbling finger sandwiches, Devonshire clotted cream, homemade seasonal jams and one of the most delicious scones in town. Now, working with the pioneering luxury tea brand Tealeaves, The Lounge unveils an enhanced selection of seasonal and traditional tea offerings, tea cocktails, as well as pastry and savory bites inspired by the seasonal tea selection.

The opening seasonal tea selection includes Lavender Earl Grey, Energy Herbal, Mountain Berry and Imperial. In addition to 12 traditional tea varieties, guests can enjoy the seasonal teas served hot or in original iced tea infusions. For those who fancy a delightfully boozy afternoon, they can top up with a glass of Champagne Ruinart Blanc de Blancs at HK$185 (US$24) or pick one of the three tea cocktails crafted by award-winning bartenders at Blue Bar, each priced at HK$135. One on the menu, The Russian Earl Grey, is concocted with Belvedere vodka infused Russian Earl Grey tea, chocolate liqueur, Tia Maria and vanilla syrup.

Food items on the tea stand are further inspired by the seasonal flavors of the tea menu. For savory items, Italian executive chef Andrea Accordi gave a floral spin to his creation, adding lavender jelly to foie gras while pastry chef Ringo Chan whipped up a berry tea moist cake and Imperial Oolong creme with poached white peach.

A new tea experience comes to afternoon tea at The Lounge, where conversation flows to the melodies of the piano and hands are warmed by steaming cups of tea and the rays of the late day sun.(SD News)
