Ranging from deep purple to pale lilac in color, the beautifully scented lavender flower is a symbol of high summer. These attributes inspired the pastry chefs at The Okura Prestige Bangkok to create the Lavender Garden Afternoon Tea at Up & Above Bar.
From July to September guests can indulge in sweet temptations that include lavender macaron, lavender and bee pollen chocolate, lavender and black current cream roll, lavender wild blueberry cake, seasonal cream daifuku, lavender and blueberry tartlet, potted lavender crème and blackcurrant scones accompanied by 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. The best afternoon teas also feature savory bites and sandwiches and the Lavender Garden Afternoon Tea won’t disappoint with fabulous fare such as crab, avocado and nori tartlet, and white asparagus with sauce Hollandaise and capers, and a miniature club sandwich of smoked trout layered with cucumber and horseradish on rye.
