The hotel’s pastry chefs will create sweet and savoury treats, referencing the East-meets-West aesthetics and colours of the iconic Qeelin collections. These delights are served on a specially designed stand, in the signature gourd-shape of Qeelin’s Wulu collection, together with TWG tea or coffee.
The pastry items play with three main colours to represent the jewellery brand. Black and red are the brand’s signature colours while gold represents the wealth in Asian culture.
Representing the Bo Bo collection, the black shade is featured in a chocolate panda atop charcoal biscuit, chocolate ginger cremeux and chocolate mousse. The red scheme is a raspberry glazed jewel with gianduja cream to represent the Wulu collection pattern. The gold colour is a nod to the Chinese Year of the Dog and inspired by the Wang Wang collection, with mandarin-flavour cake, lightly laced with coffee, gold covered chocolate and a logo-emblazoned macaron.
The tea set also includes cream tea scones, other sweet delights and a selection of savouries, such as a Boston lobster and tom yum mayo soft roll; a duck liver mousse profiterole with coconut; Norwegian salmon gravlax, honey mustard and red onion, on rye bread; egg mayonnaise, black truffle paste and caviar; and a salami and mustard butter pretzel roll.
At Bt1,800-plus per set for two people, each Qeelin Afternoon Tea set includes a complimentary Qeelin gift certificate, which is redeemable at the Sette Peccati boutique, on the M Floor of Siam Paragon, available while stocks last.
