Tea time at the Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong never gets out of fashion. From Ferrari Junior to Damiani, fashion brands have more than once brought their designer touches to the much celebrated tradition of afternoon tea at the hotel.
Now dessert aficionados can, for the second time, look forward some afternoon tea treats designed by Pierre Hermé Paris’, the exclusive Satine Afternoon Tea will be served at the Café 103 in August, the new afternoon tea will dish out an array of sweet and savory treats inspired by Pierre Hermé’s famed Fetish Satine.
One of Maison Pierre Hermé Paris’ signature creations, Fetish Satine is a collection of pastries that combine the flavors of passion fruit, orange that is then enhanced with cream cheese. Guests will have the chance to sample six different desserts from the Satine collection including the Chou Satine, created with a passion fruit crumble, orange marmalade, passion fruit and cream cheese mascarpone with crunchy shortbread pastry. Other highlights include the Emotion Satine – featuring passion fruit compote, seasoned orange pieces, with cream cheese and shortbread pastry and the Cake Satine, a reinterpretation of the classic pound cake, enlivened with orange zest and the aromas of passion fruit.
