Must visit: Enjoy tea at the Ritz with Pierre Hermé this August
At the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong
Tea at the Ritz is a delectably indulgent extravagance whichever city you may be in (and fortunate enough to secure a coveted reservation). The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong is bringing a new elevation to the leisurely pastime with a guest appearance from Pierre Hermé Paris. The exclusive 'Satine Afternoon Tea' will be served at the Café 103 throughout the month of August, and will dish out an array of sweet and savoury treats inspired by Pierre Hermé's famed Fetish Satine.
For the second time since its opening diners will have the opportunity to sample six different desserts from the Satine collection at Café 103, including the Chou Satine, created with a passion fruit crumble, orange marmalade, passion fruit and cream cheese mascarpone with crunchy shortbread pastry, and the Cake Satine, a reinterpretation of the classic pound cake, enlivened with orange zest and the aromas of passion fruit, as well as a selection of equally delicious savoury offerings. To complete the experience, guests can pair the tantalising treats with Pierre Hermé's custom-blended Satine tea, flavoured with aromatic passion fruit and orange essence. If you are in town, be sure to pay the tea room a visit, and hurry – it ends when August does.
