A modern perspective meets classic European, this Limited Edition set was inspired by a Bangkok-based artist and illustrator, Jirayu Koo, bringing to life positive visuals from all things around her with a bold colour combination. Glom-Glom, Jira’s creation of a sweet roly-poly lady figure full of fun, excitement and confidence in the concept of floating in a summer of happiness, coupled with Executive Pastry Chef Franck’s mouth-watering creations, will provide guests with an awakening summer dream, very much worth experiencing.

 

The Summery Dream Afternoon Tea – Limited Edition features 16 unique miniature sweet and savoury items that come in all fun shapes, shades and colours, including the lemon basil and strawberry cube; hazelnut pyramid orange almond soft cake; mango raspberry dome and chocolate shortbread; matcha green tea financier and yuzu curd; vanilla pineapple tartlet with coconut whipped cream; assortment of chocolate leaves on chocolate soil; and sweet grissini with white chocolate crisp strawberry and milk chocolate pistachio.
