Containing essential oils that have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, when used in cuisine the lavender bloom imparts a delicate sweet floral flavour. Inspired by these attributes, the talented pastry chefs at The Okura Prestige Bangkok have created a wonderfully refreshing Lavender Afternoon Tea at Up & Above Bar.
From July through to September guests can indulge in sweet treats that include seasonal macarons, tannea milk chocolate bon bon, lavender and quark cheesecake, peach gateaux, lavender honey and yoghurt potted crème, chocolate and black current tart, pear and almond cake and traditional scones with clotted cream, jams and marmalade. Freshly brewed illy coffee, premium Mariage Frères or Saro tea are the perfect companions to these sweet delights. Along with the confections the Lavender Afternoon Tea also includes savoury bites and sandwiches such as vegetarian pesto brioche with ikura, traditional cucumber and coronation chicken sandwiches, and artisan salmon gravlax.
The Lavender Afternoon Tea is available daily from 1 July – 30 September 2019, 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. daily at Up & Above Bar. Priced from Baht 1,290++ inclusive of illy coffee, premium Mariage Frères or Saro tea for 2 persons.
