Home Search Send to Friend Latest Travel News Asia Monday, 10 February 2014

The afternoon tea ritual with delicate sandwiches and warm scones is one that is normally preserved for women, an experience that Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is famed for in both Clipper Lounge and Cafť Causette.

This March, however, the hotel will launch a series of special afternoon teas for gentlemen to enjoy in the famed Captainís Bar and The Chinnery.

The Chinnery and Captainís Bar are both known and loved for their gentlemen's club-like surroundings, with leather booths and dark-wood furniture, and now men will be able to meet and relax, or secure business deals over two different afternoon teaís the Gentlemenís Power Snack and Gentlemenís Power Afternoon Tea, which have been created especially for them. Both of these sets will include a chilled draft beer of their choice served in the famed silver tankards.

The Gentlemenís Power Snack will feature a mini pulled pork burger, a truffle croque-monsieur, an English pie and a chocolate cigar. It costs HK$238 per person.

On the other hand, the Gentlemenís Power Afternoon Tea will include roast beef with mini Yorkshire pudding, pork pie, smoked salmon bagel, welsh rarebit and truffle croquet Monsieur, along with an array of sweet treats from The Mandarin Cake Shop such as a chocolate brownie, apple pie and, naturally, the chocolate cigar at HK$328

The beer can be changed to a 12-year Macallan whisky for an additional HK$40.

ďAfternoon tea can now be enjoyed by everyone,Ē said Director of Food and Beverage, Nicolas Dubort. ďWhilst ladies and children can enjoy delicate finger sandwiches, cakes, scones with clotted cream and our famed rose petal jam in the elegance of the Clipper Lounge and Cafť Causette, gentlemen can now retreat to the masculine setting of Captainís Bar or The Chinnery to enjoy a tea experience that we have created especially for them.Ē

The Gentlemenís Power Snack and the Gentlemenís Power Afternoon Tea will be available between 2.30pm and 5pm Monday to Saturday in the Captainís Bar and between 2.30pm and 5pm Monday to Friday in The Chinnery.

To celebrate the launch of these gentlemenís afternoon teas, The Mandarin Barber will also launch a tailor-made Gentlemenís Retreat package. This will allow gentlemen to enjoy not only the Gentlemenís Power Afternoon Tea, but also a 30-minute reflexology in The Mandarin Barber. The cost of this special package is HK$488.
