Tea with Tiffany
This summer, why have Breakfast at Tiffany’s when you can have Afternoon Tea instead. One of my favorite iconic hotels, The Peninsula Hong Kong will be partnering with legendary jeweler Tiffany & Co. to launch a special edition of the hotel’s renowned Afternoon Tea in the ever-elegant lobby, available only during the month of June.
The “New York Spirit” Afternoon Tea set will offer The Peninsula’s signature delicacies, from savory treats to the hotel’s signature freshly baked scones. Get a taste of Tiffany Blue while indulging into the spectacular top tier of cakes and treats which include macarons made with Madagascar vanilla and white chocolate.
Sample New York cheesecake with blueberry, cream and shortbread; lime and coconut cupcakes topped by edible pearls in white and Tiffany blue; and a confectionary recreation of Tiffany & Co.’s signature Blue Box made from vanilla mousse, strawberry marmalade and almond joconde sponge. Is your mouth watering yet?
To complete this beautiful tea experience, a sweet treat of an indulgent square of dark chocolate ganache with fragrant lavender. It’s topped by an intricate stamp that recalls the famous gargoyles that adorn The Lobby’s ceiling — a special chocolate creation that has been hand-crafted by The Peninsula Hong Kong’s resident Maître Chocolatier, Marijn Coertjens, winner of the “Best Belgian Chocolate Master” title in 2015.
Guests queue up early to get a table at this popular Hong Kong hotel, so be sure to make reservations in advance. The New York Spirit Afternoon Tea set is priced at HK$ 358* for one person or HK$ 628* for two. Reserve: +852 2696 6772 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
