Spotlight on afternoon tea

Institute members recommend their favourite places in Hong Kong to have afternoon tea

The Butterfly Room

“For the ultimate afternoon tea experience, I recommend The Butterfly Room at The Rosewood Hong Kong. From savoury starters such as black Angus steak tartare with truffle fries and smoked salmon and salmon roe with cream cheese, to desserts such as mini madeleines, apple tarts and homemade chocolate bon bons, this is the place to indulge. It’s one of the most popular spots for afternoon tea, so be sure to book in advance!” says Wong.

Kowloon Shangri-la Hong Kong

“I recommend having afternoon tea at Kowloon Shangri-la Hong Kong. Their afternoon tea set includes both savoury and sweet options, and their tea selection is impressive too – you can try regular teas such as Earl Grey and chamomile tea or more interesting ones such as Darjeeling and Assam tea. The hotel also regularly partners with brands to offer special afternoon tea sets. When I went last time, I enjoyed their afternoon tea set, which was offered in partnership with beauty brand Sabon,” says Wong.

“For a more inexpensive afternoon tea experience, be sure to try new eatery Ham6Baang6Laang6 (冚棒唥) located in Jordan. Their coffee selection is great, and I recommend trying their salted caramel crunch cappuccino. Their rice burgers are also quite popular, but my favourite is their toast with black truffle. If you’re a fan of art, the café also sells food-themed paintings, stickers, pin badges and postcards,” says Law.
