Hong Kong: W Hotel High Tea

W Hotel High Teal

If you have never experienced high tea then you MUST go. Every year/time I go to Hong Kong I try to make it to high tea. This was my second time trying the W Hong Kong’s  afternoon tea – and I must say, the atmosphere is spectacular and this high tea is unordinary and lovely. I think how the food and drink are presented are definitely at the crossroads of where East meets West.  The interior is inviting and the art found throughout this international hotel is fantastic, odd and bit over the top – but it works! Check it out!

Butterflies and mirrors reflect the walls and shows of the interior’s high ceilings. The high tea is located in the W’s WOOBAR . If you decide to experience this Kowloon high tea, I recommend calling a day in advance to make a reservation.

Winnie’s VIP Hong Kong W Card

My best friend Winnie always seems to find the best deals in town – she’s super savvy. She signed up for Hong Kong’s W VIP card which allows her to receive 25% off the restaurants, spa and amenities (excluding room rates); she also received 1500 HKD coupons at the W Hong Kong . We ordered the high tea’s set menu for two (for the three of us). See what I mean when I say “east meets west?”

We had a lovely time at afternoon tea. I miss my friends so much. I love hearing them speak Cantonese together (I hope to learn one day). Winnie and I speak Mandarin together sometimes and we talk about the days we lived in Beijing together. I can’t wait to see her next year and hopefully this summer in LA. The W’s high tea is one of the best in Hong Kong. My two friends, especially Lam Lam is definitely a food critic and knows her “stuff” being a baker herself. Even if she may disagree with me about the W’s high tea being one of the best in Hong Kong, I can’t wait to see where she suggests to go next!  Winnie and Lam Lam get ready for next year! Love you both so very much.
