No trip to Kuala Lumpur is complete without experiencing Afternoon Tea (often referred to as “High Tea”) at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur!
The Afternoon Tea experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur is known for its exceptional service offering meticulous attention to detail and timeless rituals. The opening event was a homage to the great British tradition of afternoon teas and we were served the chef’s salmon paste with crackers, a simple concept yet absolutely scrumptious! Next, an elegant three-tier tower held an intriguing combination of staple and novel offerings such as freshly (and warmly!) baked scones, petite gourmet sandwiches, quiches, pies and desserts, all of which were accompanied with a perfectly-steeped pot of house blend, Chinese Tie Kuan Ying, a oolong with a very delicate and creamy flavor. Somehow we all realized there really is nothing quite so luxurious as sipping tea from a fine bone China cup and saucer tea set. Definitely a memorable ‘first’ experience for the boys.
I must say I was especially tickled by a teeny tartlet containing chocolate ganache, layered with chocolate fondant, adorned with a light lemon cream, accented with an icing sugar crust and a sliver of rolled chocolate. The layering was so perfectly put together and with just the right proportion of filling resulting in a delicious chewing. A true work of art.
Without any doubt, a luxurious and memorable experience I would highly recommend it to anyone or family visiting Kuala Lumpur. Treat yourself, you probably deserve it.
