Hong Kong has an amazing array of afternoon tea options. They range from swish hotel buffets to cosy cafés. Some afternoon teas get creative and splice beauty and fashion with this classic culinary experience. Here are some of our favourites around town at the moment.
Glam Diptyque afternoon tea
HK$688 for two persons +10% service charge
The InterContinental Hong Kong has launched a Parisian-inspired afternoon tea. So fancy! This one, called the Diptyque Eau Capitale & Paris en Fleur Afternoon Tea Set, is in collaboration with Diptyque Paris and it celebrates the launch of the brand’s new fragrance, Eau Capitale. The afternoon tea is a combination of sweet and savoury treats inspired by Paris. And the collaboration works both ways; you’ll get a Diptyque sample as part of the deal, but if you’ve already purchased a fragrance, there’s a 20% discount when you present your sales receipt at the InterContinental’s Lobby Lounge.
