Throughout April, families across Japan gather to enjoy picnics under the annual fragrant Sakura cherry tree blossoms. The pastry chefs at The Okura Prestige Bangkok have taken inspiration from this explosion of color and scent to create a special Sakura Blossom Afternoon Tea at Up & Above Bar.
Some of the savory treats include grilled sea scallops and mushroom tartare with balsamic; red tuna Tataki with black peppercorns and Wakame salad duck confit and berry tartlet; and Kani and avocado salad on rye bread, which pair beautifully with a glass of chilled Champagne or Prosecco.
Naturally, no high tea would be complete without a selection of sweet treats. At the Sakura Blossom Afternoon Tea they include cherry blossom custard, cream rolls, strawberry shortcake, seasonal Daifuku, Sakura macarons, Sakura chocolate truffle, pickled Sakura scones, and artisan clotted cream, jams, and marmalade. All make the perfect companion to a cup of rich Illy coffee or freshly brewed premium Saro and Mariage Frères teas.
