29 October 2021, Hong Kong SAR, China – Popinjays takes pampering to the next level with the new and elevated afternoon tea concept. An indulgent experience for dessert aficionados, A Teatime Feast presents a delicate and delightful afternoon tea buffet to satisfy any sweet tooth.
As the elevators open onto the rooftop, guests are drawn to a lavish spread of sweet and savoury treats on display. The experience begins with a heart-warming selection of Cantonese petits fours served at the table. Guest can also select from an enticing array of savoury bites at the buffet station, ranging from 24-month Serrano Ham, Beef Pastrami and Honey Mustard Sandwich, Toasted Butternut Squash and Red Current Tart, Pan con Tomate and much more.
Served as an intermezzo to refresh the palate, a bite-sized spring roll will be offered before guests move on to oven-warm scones. Soft, moist on the inside and served with rich clotted cream and delicious strawberry and rhubarb jam, the freshly made scones in original and maple pecan flavour are sure to melt a heart.
Desserts are always the essential part and the biggest draw of an afternoon tea. A rotating selection of masterfully created confectionaries, from the luscious Green Velvet Opera and the autumnal Pumpkin Spice Tart to the festive Red Currant Vanilla Swiss Roll, is lovingly presented on the dessert tables to deliver a unique flair that is reminiscent of a Viennese patisserie. Of special note is the Pastry Chef’s daily creation showcasing his favourites recipes, seasonal ingredients as well as some most-requested cakes. Guests can expect classic sweets such as Mille-Feuille, Strawberry Shortcake, Lemon Tart, Coconut Passion Fruit Cake and much more.
With panoramic views of the Central District as the backdrop, afternoon tea at Popinjays promises to be the most flamboyant and Instagram-worthy experience of its kind.
