In a city where the afternoon tea scene is brimming with options, the partnership between Sheraton Towers Singapore and Shanghai Tang offers a refreshing experience. Get ready for a tasty culinary trip imbued with the grace of the “Chinese Garden” home collection and the craft of fine dining at the Oriental Soirée Afternoon Tea.
Savouring Elegance with Shanghai Tang
Shanghai Tang, known for its distinctive blend of contemporary aesthetics and traditional Chinese artistry, ventures beyond the fashion world. The iconic “Chinese Garden” home collection introduces a touch of grace and elegance to the vibrant realm of design. “Crane Garden,” the latest addition to this collection, dances with the breeze of the mild season, embracing distinctive Chinese elements like cranes, ginkgo, and intricate window lattices. It brilliantly marries Western decorative arts with Chinese aesthetics, creating a cultural narrative for your daily life.
Just as cranes glide gracefully through the sky, Shanghai Tang also aspires to infuse your life with relaxation and bestow a blessing for a brighter tomorrow. This vision comes to life through the Oriental Soirée Afternoon Tea.
A Glimpse into the Past: 2017’s Shanghai Tang Afternoon Tea
Before we dive further into this culinary masterpiece, let’s briefly journey back to 2017. It’s important to note that this isn’t Shanghai Tang’s inaugural venture into the realm of high tea. In that year, they engaged in a collaboration with the InterContinental Hong Kong to present an afternoon tea set inspired by the fashion brand’s iconic designs. The tea set also incorporated seasonal items and Asian-inspired ingredients, elegantly packaged within a stunning Shanghai Tang lacquered box. It served as a tribute to the artful fusion of fashion and food, a concept that Shanghai Tang has perfected over the years.
Exquisite Culinary Offerings with a Cultural Flair
From now until December 31, 2023, the Lobby Bar at Sheraton Towers Singapore becomes the canvas for this artistic masterpiece. You can indulge in a delectable spread of sweets and savouries, each dish resonating with cultural subtleties. Imagine savouring Osmanthus Black Sesame Macarons, Jasmine Mango Pomelo Tartlets, and Smoked Salmon Blinis with Szechuan Pepper Crème Fraiche and Smoked Caviar. It’s an edible journey through China’s diverse culinary landscape.
But it’s the fusion of traditional Cantonese excellence with contemporary innovation that truly distinguishes this afternoon tea. The award-winning Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant serves two handcrafted specialities: Bird’s Nest Almond Egg White Tarts and Mini Chilli Lobster Bolo Buns. It’s a well-balanced mix of old and new.
Sip in Style
The Oriental Soirée Afternoon Tea isn’t just about food; it’s an experience in itself. You can complement your afternoon tea with a welcome Moscato or elevate your experience with specially concocted Lychee Mint Mocktails and Passionfruit Oolong Cocktails. The choice is yours, and each sip is a testament to the creativity and artistry that fills every corner of this experience.
