13 August 2021, Hong Kong SAR, China – Garden Lounge presents the most fulfilling tea drinking experience this summer with Tea-licious Afternoon treats spotlighting premium single origin teas from the JING range.
Three selected chilled tea beverages, including the invigorating Lemongrass and Ginger Tea, the fragrant Ceylon and Rose Tea, and the bold and uplifting Earl Grey Tea, are taking center stage of the afternoon tea experience. A delightful array of sweet and savoury treats are thoughtfully created to complement the unique character and taste of the teas.
The bright and zesty Lemongrass and Ginger Tea is a herbal infusion of intensely fresh lemongrass from Thailand and satisfyingly warm ginger. Its refreshing citrus aroma makes it the perfect companion to the Coconut and Pineapple Sable. The bracing herbal and spiced ginger tones allow the mild sweetness of seafood to shine through, enriching the flavour profile of Crab Meat Sandwich and Avocado Shrimp Tart.
The aromatic and enchanting Ceylon and Rose Tea from Ruhuna of Sri Lanka is a malty black tea with light notes of fruit. The medium-bodied Ceylon tea offers a clever balance to the buttery Apricot Financier whereas the sweet and fragrant rose garden finish is best paired with the equally fruity Raspberry Cream Crease Sandwich and Watermelon and Feta Cheese Sandwich.
An invigorating black tea lifted by fresh and exuberant citrus, the Earl Grey Tea is a definitive blend of natural bergamot extract and full-bodied Ceylon tea from Ruhuna, in the south of Sri Lanka. The Lemon Bergamot Cookies impart the iconic citrus note of the tea while the Black Truffle Chicken Roll Sandwich tempers the tea's natural fragrance. The bold and robust black tea is best enjoyed with the rich and indulgent Chocolate Blueberry Opera Cake.
