I am super excited to finally got a slot for the afternoon tea at Rosewood Hong Kong. I think I had been trying to book online for months, weekend is completely impossible ! They have two time slot for their afternoon tea, 2 pm and 4:30 pm, they are pretty strict with the timing. Afternoon tea for two is HKD 720 + 10% service charge. It does sound pretty expensive right ? When you go through the following you will have a different perspective. Cause I had the same feeling too, didn’t know what t
Afternoon tea for two is HKD 720 + 10% service charge. It does sound pretty expensive right ? When you go through the following you will have a different perspective. Cause I had the same feeling too, didn’t know what to expect !
My verdict: make sure you didn’t have lunch before you head over to this tea.... or else you will regret ! Cause unlimited REFILL !
First serving are their savory items:
A colorful rainbow sandwich, looks pretty simple but pretty delicious ! It wasn’t like the other places that serves hard or dry sandwiches ! This savory dishes changes seasonally !
Comes to the assorted savory tower !
- foie gras lollipop
- smoked salmon & salmon roe with sour cream
- crab toast
- charsiu pastry
- two other savory items that I forgot the name ! Will probably need to come back next time !
Second serving is my favorite items: scones & Madeleines !!!!
Madeleines came out of surprise, given that normally this is not a usual items for afternoon tea. Their perfect miniature size, warm and soft texture with a little crunchy edge..... I think I m in love with this ! ❤️
Scones comes with clotted cream and two different jams ! Scones was hot and flurry inside, didn’t have much flour after taste and the texture was perfect ! Yes I am pretty picky for scones !
If you are a sweet tooth..... this afternoon tea is a MUST ! Unlimited refilled of cakes and dessert from their pastry and chocolate trolly !
Yes I had ordered everything from the trolly to share.
- strawberry tart
- lemongrass cheesecake
- chocolate and raspberry éclair
- Mille feuille (this was absolutely delicious, the pastry was crunchy .... and the creamy layers was smooth and thick)
- financier ( this was a little too sweet for me and the size could have been smaller)
Last but not least their devil chocolate trolly ... also unlimited refill!
From the cart there are the following:
- Black Forest cake
- chocolate mousse
- cherry chocolate
- homemade white chocolate
- two other chocolate cakes
- signature butterfly kisses
It’s made with marshmallows filling and jam coated with thin layer of chocolate! The well balanced structure .... sour tone from the jam balanced off the sweetness of the chocolate and marshmallows!!!
