Afternoon Tea at Four Seasons Beijing

Afternoon tea at Four Seasons Beijing

I’ve taken a liking to afternoon tea in the past year or so and reckon it started from my experience at Cameron Highlands Resort. Then there’s the amazing afternoon tea at St Regis Bali that I’m still drooling about. Almost each hotel has its ‘special’, so it depends on which sandwich/pastry tickles your fancy.

Nibbles along the way…

Checked out the afternoon tea at Opus Lounge in Four Seasons Beijing last month – the hotel has a tea connoisseur yo! Then again, it’s China and they drink tea at the rate we Malaysians drink teh tarik.

Bloody Mary

For ¥158, I got a decent set of assorted sandwiches, cakes and scones, with your choice of tea. I let my friend have the tea and ordered myself a Bloody Mary. Yes, this is one of my favourite cocktails. My fridge has tomato juice and tabasco sauce for that purpose.

Golden raisins and plain scones

Wasn’t a fan of the scones here, but the clotted cream and strawberry preserves were good stuff. I liked the smoked salmon and horseradish on rye bread, but less so the chicken breast and honey mustard with fresh herbs on brioche.

With Holger 🙂

Service was a tad rigid, partly because most of the staff spoke “Beijing-hua” and my mandarin is as bad as my willpower over Holger’s macarons. Those were good macarons by the way.
