Up & Above Bar at The Okura Prestige Bangkok is crafting refreshing Lavender Afternoon Tea delights that will be available from July 1 through September 30.

Containing essential oils that have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, when used in cuisine the lavender bloom imparts a delicate sweet floral flavour. Diners can indulge in sweet treats that include seasonal macarons, tannea milk chocolate bon bon, lavender and quark cheesecake, peach gateaux, lavender honey and yoghurt potted creme, chocolate and black current tart, pear and almond cake and traditional scones with clotted cream, jams and marmalade. 

 

Freshly brewed illy coffee and premium Mariage Freres or Saro tea are the perfect companions to these sweet delights. The Lavender Afternoon Tea also includes savoury bites and sandwiches such as vegetarian pesto brioche with ikura, traditional cucumber and coronation chicken sandwiches, and artisan salmon gravlax.

 

The afternoon tea set is priced at Bt1,290 inclusive of illy coffee, premium Mariage Freres or Saro tea for two.

 

Make a reservation by calling (02) 687 9000 or email upandabove@okurabangkok.com.
