Sakura Afternoon Tea
As spring gets underway in Japan, the country’s famous Sakura cherry trees will be spreading their fabulous pink-hued petals, encouraging families to gather for dainty picnics under the fragrant flora. Now that wonderful experience is recreated at Up & Above Restaurant and Bar at The Okura Prestige Bangkok, where from now to 30th June the renowned Sakura Afternoon Tea for two pays tribute to the delicate flavours of Japan in full spring bloom.
Sakura or cherry blossom is nature’s beautiful calling card and the flower is a global icon of Japan and its traditions. Hence at lavish Up & Above Restaurant and Bar, the delicate Sakura Afternoon Tea is a celebration of the light flavours and beautiful aromas of seasonal Japanese ingredients that will delight the palette.
Highlights of the succulent savoury offerings are tasty crispy sakura ball and cheese tartlet with red wine, shallot and marmalade. But no afternoon tea worthy of the name is complete without a selection of comforting confections and those with a sweet tooth will fall in love with dolce delights such as Sakura lychee cheesecake, Sakura water cake kinnako crumble, a spectacular strawberry short cake, the hotel’s famous macaroons with wild strawberry filling, one of a kind strawberry yuzu scone and more.
An indulgent sharing experience for two in an enchanting setting, Sakura Afternoon Tea at The Okura Prestige Bangkok does exactly what spring does in nature – it rekindles enthusiasm for life and a sugar-coated Japanese wanderlust.
The Sakura Afternoon Tea package is available every day 2pm – 5pm and is priced at Bt1,750++ per set of two persons; Bt2,350++ per set of two persons inclusive of two glasses of Sparkling Rosé and Bt3,500++ per set of two persons inclusive of two glasses of Perrier-Jouët Champagne.
