Amongst the 3 hotels in Admiralty, we had tried afternoon tea sets at Island ShangriLa many times and Conrad once. This time, we decided to try JW Marriott. We were surprised that price was not expensive. No wonder it was so hard to book. We had been on their waitlist for weeks before our booking was confirmed one day before. Busy places must have a reason?Price was $488 + 10% for two with welcome tea and coffee for Sat, Sun and Public Holidays. If you pay $200 + 10% more, you get a glass of Moe

Shortly after taking our orders, welcome tea was served to us. It smelt very nice of osmanthus and was just slightly sweet and super refreshing. Portion wise it was just like 2 sips with a giant ice cube.

There were 6 savouries. Each piece looked quite big in size. Their signature 鮑魚撻 and 虎蝦春卷配甜酸汁 already offered very great value for money and could really hardly be found elsewhere for afternoon tea sets.

It had a giant Tiger Prawn. As you could expect, the spring roll sheet was no longer fresh and crispy but the sweet and sour sauce was a great highlight to make the meaty prawn so appetising. I even finished the shell at the tail.

Abalone Tart 鮑魚撻

The abalone was not big but was pretty chewy and well seasoned. The tart base was quite crunchy. But the bad thing was that the combo of abalone and tart actually wasn't quite a match and it was just like using a mini tart base to hold the abalone.

Mango Lobster Salad with Caviar 芒果龍蝦沙津配魚子醬

The lobster pieces were very fresh and meaty and elastic to chew. The dressing was delicious and the sour mango cubes at the bottom were quite nice to balance the slightly sweet dressing. The caviar added preciousness to the dish.

Duck Foie Gras Pate, Melon, Raisins Brioche with Fig Jam 鴨肝醬配蜜瓜提子無花果醬多士

The duck foie gras pate was very smooth and not too greasy. It went great with the thin and crispy brioche. Fig jam flavour seemed to have been masked. Unfortunately the melon ball was too hard and not juicy. I think this could taste pretty refreshing and not so greasy even without so many fruits.

Iberico Ham with Fresh Figs, Wheat Baguette and Brie Cheese 西班牙黑毛豬火腿配鮮無花果布里芝士麥法包

The wheat baguette was very thin and crispy with some wheat to enhance texture. The brie cheese was quite thick. Together with the fresh figs, they helped to make the ham less dry. That said, I found it a bit too dry.

The tomato looked not so nice without skin to be frank. But taste wise it was pretty juicy in an interesting preserved plum sauce.

There were 6 sweets. Again each piece of sweets seemed quite big in size. Although many other eaters had commented that their sweets were too sweet, we actually found them ok.

The macaroon was so big and very fresh and crispy with moist interior stuffed by green tea stuffings. Yuzu flavour was not so strong. There was a very pretty hazelnut pearl on top to add texture. It was not too sweet to us. Quite a high quality macaroon.

It looked so pretty with some white thin chocolate slice surrounding the outer surface in a nice round shape like a ruby stone. There was loads of vanilla mousse inside balanced by the sourness of the strawberry and blueberry filling. The blueberry on top did not taste very good as it had been cooked but was nicely decorated by some edible gold.

Green Apple Cream, Pineapple Kale Confit with Rice Bubble Base 青蘋果忌廉羽衣甘藍蜜蜂菠蘿卜卜米脆底

It was made in a nice dome shape surrounded by a white thin slice of chocolate. The green apple cream was quite refreshing although the flavours of pineapple and kale seemed to have been masked. The rice bubble base was still crunchy. There were 2 thin shreds of green apples placed on top.

Chocolate Madeleine with Raspberry Marmalade 黑朱古力貝殼蛋糕伴紅桑子醬


The madeleine was made from dark chocolate so it was not sweet. But it was a bit too dry as the raspberry sauce inside could have been more.

There was one sweet which did not match the one specified on their menu. We asked the staff about it and even him could not tell us which it was about. Flavour-wise it seemed to be something made of sweet potato mousse and jelly, vanilla mousse and cream. It was quite nice. I particularly like the chocolate-made shell on top and the nice colourful decorative shreds on top.

We saw that they took out a lot of scones on a big tray and sorted them in the lounge before distributing the scones to us. If they could have done it indoors, it would have been better perception wise. That said, when the scones were served to us, the scones were still a little bit warm. The scones were sufficiently moist. I particularly liked how their crusts were slightly crunchy. The raisins scones were better because they smelt better. I usually liked Devonshire clotted cream more compared with jam but it was still cold and hard so it was not smooth at all. So I liked their blueberry jam more this time which was perfectly sweet with some real blueberries in it. Not the best scones we had ever had say at Four Seasons or Island ShangriLa but definitely not bad.

Iced Chocolate

There were two drinks included, either freshly brewed Graffeo Coffee or Tea WG selections. Tea only had a few choices including peppermint tea, earl grey, English breakfast tea without a list of tea menu to show you. We opted for two iced chocolates instead. They were just ok as they were not particularly smooth and we saw some chocolate sauce sunk to the bottom of our glasses after we had finished it.

In addition to the food, each of us got a small pack of branded skincare products to take away.

To conclude, the quality of the savouries was not like marvellous but they had quite a few signature items which were unique and reasonably good, making their savouries above average overall. Comparable with those at Island ShangriLa/Le Salon De The de Joel Robuchon. Their sweets were basically elaborately made with a lot of details and ingredients, making them good for photos and offering more complicated texture. That said, most of them seemed to be mousse, cream or ganache which made them quite similar in terms of texture.

Interior renovations were of the modern type with my favourite purple colour and metallic colours. Look at the light purple napkin in the picture. Ceilings were high. The seats could have been more comfortable with more cushions but they were spacious. Unlike Island ShangriLa, there was no live band.

Service was reasonable although there was no paper bag/envelopes to keep your used face masks. There was a 20% discount using HSB platinum credit card so that it was only $220 per head including service charge. Great value for money.
