Suzhou, China, 11 July till 30 Sep 2022 — ‘Summer has clothed the earth in a cloak from the loom of the sun, and a mantle too, of the skies soft blue, and a belt where the rivers run.’ Niccolo Suzhou offers a place of coolness to savour tea at new heights at The Tea Lounge, presenting to distinguished guests our new ‘Summer Indulgence’ themed afternoon tea. Using clouds as the grand canvas, the tea set is painted in summer colours with a palette full of seasonal freshness of ivory white, lime green and Moscato Rosé.
