A visit to Hong Kong isn't complete without a visit to Afternoon Tea at the world famous The Peninsula hotel
Opened in 1928, it is easily one of the most internationally renowned hotels, with a large fleet of Rolls Royce and having appeared in James Bond films and 'The Dark Knight', it is definitely a must visit.
Luxurious old world feel
We arrived at around 3pm, and the afternoon started at 2pm. As there is a no bookings policy, there was (and always seems to be) a line, though it moved quite quickly and we didn't wait very long.
The Lobby menu with afternoon tea and other choices
Silver teapots - I would have preferred more fancy teapots and cups, but that's just my personal girly preference
Eagerly awaiting our tea and tier
Our lovely tier of goodies - sweets on the top, sandwiches & savouries in the middle and scones on the bottom
The raisin scones were lovely and warm with a decent serving of jam and cream, this plate also had a delicious crispy, puff pastry type finger as well
The sandwiches and tarlet were great too
And now for the plate that I was eyeing off as soon as the tier arrived - sweets!
Including a mini portugese tart, macarons, passionfruit tarlet and cakes - yum!
