Afternoon tea in the clouds
Living in Sz has given me the opportunity to try out some pretty awesome experiences, this is one of them. Afternoon Tea on the 96th floor of a skyscraper
When you think afternoon tea, I’m sure you think relaxed, sedate, and peaceful. I’ll bet you don’t think sky high, and cloud views. With the St Regis you get both and more. Located on the 96th flor of the Kingkey 100 building this is afternoon tea in style. Surrounded by opulence and luxury this was truly a memorable experience.
After taking the lift to the 96th floor you’ll be wowed by the décor and the style. It just screams the finer things, and you know this will be a fun afternoon. The floor has 360-degree panorama views of the city below you, meaning, no matter where you sit you’ll be greeted by a sumptuous view. Feel free to walk around and drink in the views, or just snap some pictures.
The afternoon tea set at the St. Regis was truly special. It consists of a set of 12 items, including macaroons, mini sandwich, yoghurt, mini-pie, mini-croissant, cheese tart, chocolate torte, and scones with cream and jam. The set also includes a tea or coffee of your choice. Home made apple pie and cream presented to you by the chef himself is also included. The presentation, taste, texture and style of the set is breath-taking. The best example I’ve had in SZ so far.
How does it work? To go to the sky lounge you need to buy a food voucher which costs 230RMB, and you then deduct that from any food and drink purchased. The tea set costs 230RMB so it’s a good option, and while yes, it is expensive, but as a one-off treat, it’s definitely worth it. Sit back, relax and enjoy fine food, great views, and comfortable surroundings. Please note there is a 7% service charge that is applied to any purchases made.
