Hong Kong SAR, China, 4 August 2022 – Murray Lane at The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel has given traditional afternoon tea a manly makeover to include generous bites of homemade tarts and pies served with delicious tea and beer.
Dedicated to the macho palates, the hearty Gents’ Afternoon Tea appeals to both gentlemen and ladies looking for an alternative to the traditional sweet-dominated menu. Available every afternoon, the tea experience has swapped out dainty finger sandwiches for savoury bites of generous portion sizes. The Scotch Egg with traditional sausage stuffing and a crunchy coating is sure to entice. Another British staple, Yorkshire Pudding comes with roast beef and horseradish cream. Smoked Salmon Mousse is housed in a verrine glass and topped with flavourful salmon roe. Scones are given an elevated twist with beechwood-smoked cheddar cheese and complemented with fig chutney. Enclosed with an airy and flaky pastry, freshly baked Short Rib Pie is best paired with a pot of delicious tea served strong and hot.
Guests can also expect a delightful selection of premium cheese from blue stilton, smoked Idiazabal and comté cheese, served with quince and oatcakes. Equally indulgent are the sweet treats. From luscious Devil’s Chocolate Cake to Tiramisu in a glass and dainty Blueberry Pie, the dessert trio is a definitive enjoyment.
The Gents’ Afternoon Tea is available at HKD 728 for two persons, inclusive of a coffee or tea. Those looking for a complete experience should not miss the flight of four craft beers, for an additional HKD 148.
