If you’re familiar with Hong Kong, you probably know that the Peninsula hotel is the most famous in the region. Almost equally as famous is their afternoon tea that takes place in the hotel’s lovely lobby. While showing my mother around the city, I thought it would be a great idea to treat her to an afternoon tea at the Peninsula.
We went for the champagne option to make sure we really enjoyed ourselves. The Peninsula Hong Kong offers Rose or Brut for an additional fee. Tea is great, but a little bubbly is a nice cherry on top.
After we took a few sips, it was about time to get our tower of treats along with our tea. I went with the Earl Grey and my mother went with the Swiss herb tea. Both good, and were great partners to all of the food! The Peninsula did a great job at decorating these lovely morsels. They all looked gorgeous.
I would say a majority tasted good but a few needed a bit more moisture. Also, they could have used a bit better clotted cream. Overall, the taste and look were lovely.
Throughout the afternoon, there were lots of staff members out and about ready to pour us more champagne and make sure we were happy. I did notice the queue of people that never disappeared throughout the whole hour we were there, so popular. It was a unique and lovely experience which can’t be replicated elsewhere because of this special property. There were a few places for improvement, but the end of the day, I would definitely recommend afternoon tea at the Peninsula hotel in Hong Kong!
