When Spring Blooms in the City
The new afternoon tea at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok blooms with inspiration from springtime
The arrival of springtime is marked by blooming flowers in gardens across the globe. Spring is not only a season, but also a symbol of renewal, vitality and beauty. With this in mind, Waldorf Astoria Bangkok and Executive Pastry Chef Andrea Noli are pleased to introduce a new afternoon tea set that blooms with inspiration from springtime.
“Growing up in Italy, winters always felt like the longest season of all. I remember I would sit by our big glass window at home and count down the days for the arrival of spring,” says Noli. “For many people, including myself, spring is the most beautiful season of the year. Not only do the days become longer, but the nature around us starts to wake up with new vitality and colors. I‘m bringing my beautiful Italian backyard to the tables here at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok, and would like you to join me in discovering a garden of happiness through my treats, which characterize flowers and nature during spring season.”
Guests may brighten up any day of their week by enjoying the new afternoon tea, from now onwards, at Peacock Alley between the hours of 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Indulge in a selection of sweet treats symbolizing the sights and colors of springtime including Garden Carrot Cake, Yogurt & Honey Bee, Spring Nest Tiramisu, Butterfly Macaron, Sakura Lemon & Raspberry Tart, and a range of Asian and Western-inspired savories. In-between these gourmet bites, sip a cup of your favorite Mariage Frères tea.
You may choose to be seated comfortably in the elegant corner of the hotel that is Peacock Alley with a view overlooking the Royal Bangkok Sports Club, or in a sofa with the backdrop of our beautiful Art Deco bronze clock that was designed by André Fu.
The afternoon tea set, which is available from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, is priced at THB 2,200++ including a choice of tea and coffee for two.
