The hotel has two choices of afternoon tea, a traditional one and their signature chocolate afternoon tea. We went for the chocolate afternoon tea on the 103th floor, a chocolate themed lounged named 'The Chocolate Library'
I loved the idea that they called it The Chocolate Library and to go with the theme, they presented the cakes in a little book case stand.
It was the perfect variety. You got your savories and then your sweets includes a nutty chocolate brownie with a mousse topping, a praline filling piece of choclolate, chocolate macaron, a very light sponge cake with chocolate ganache, cheesecake, a mousse dessert and a devine chocolate tart served with the choice of tea or hot chocolate. Honestly I didn't have a favourite! Everything was up to my expectations but the only thing I wasn't too keen on was the few pieces of savories.
The sizes was perfect for afternoon tea, not too big or too small but I was very glad that I only had a very light lunch on the day otherwise I wouldn't have managed to finish everything. We did spend a good few hours there taking our time, enjoying our food, chatting and relaxing and just enjoying the atmosphere. This was the perfect way to spend a lovey afternoon especially because I have such a sweet tooth.
It was a shame the weather wasn't that great on the day, I couldn't get a better photo of the views outside. On a good day, you will see a spectacular, breathtaking view of Hong Kong Island.
...but it was quite scary looking down from 103th floor...
If I do go back to Hong Kong this year, I definitely would like to pay another visit and try their Traditional afternoon tea. I loved everything about the whole experience, atmosphere, food, service, decor, views. I would definitely recommend this place.
