The limited-edition afternoon tea will consist of a tantalising mix of both sweet and savoury delights inspired by the use of key botanical ingredients found in Aromatherapy Associates products (which are also used by the hotel’s luxury spa).

Expect distinctive ingredients from the Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress collection to be weaved into the delicacies crafted by a team of award-winning pastry chefs, such as pure plant elements
like lavender and wild camomile, which are known for their calming properties. Also look out for other highlights such as the snow crab and melon which is infused with fibre-rich coconut, as well as the delectable poached shrimps with exotic lavender vinaigrette and decadent blackberry lavender tart.
