Oh, we are at it again. The never-ending search for the world’s best afternoon tea is a challenge that some of us must face (though we aren’t complaining)!
Our most recent quest lead us to Hong Kong at the famous Langham Hotel to discover the British influenced afternoon tea that Hong Kong is so famous for. Upon arrival, we were excited to learn that we would be sampling the new Tiffin themed Afternoon Tea by Paul Lafayet, a true delightful mix of East meets West. After sampling a few Tiffin teas and being educated about their flavours by our host, we were able to choose a pot of our desired tea, which would enhance the flavours of our afternoon tea experience. This was followed by a presentation of the traditional three-tier stand filled with delicately presented treats to satiate our hunger. The first layer featured savories. Filled with the traditional finger sandwich offerings such as cucumber and egg salad, and outshone by the fusion offerings of a corn fed chicken and foie gras wrap and cilantro crepe roll with blue lump crab, the savoury offerings were perfect.
The top tier, which is the holy grail of high teas (in our opinion), presented intricately decorated petit fours, such as chocolate craquelin and gold flake decorate strawberry tarts.
This was followed with the presentation of warm and perfectly baked scones to the fill the middle tier. Overall, we enjoyed the flavours of our afternoon tea treats and the soothing accompaniment of the pianist, which provided a holistic afternoon tea experience. We recommend indulging in this afternoon tea experience on your next Hong Kong visit, especially during their themed Tiffin Teddy Bear experience for October.
