High Tea at The Peninsula

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 29 December 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture.

The Peninsula is the grand old lady of Hong Kong. High tea there is a great experience anytime. This is especially so during the holidays. We couldn't get in before Christmas because the locals had booked it well in advance and the lines were hours long for those without reservations. After Christmas, the lines were much more manageable.

I would love to experience this tea time in Hong Kong. I brought back many teas from Zhanjiang, including one that was $120/lb. I bought 1/4 lb and have it on special occasions. I do have one picture of having tea there but the setting wasn't nearly as elegant. I will post it someday but its not that great of a picture. The Peninsula is beautiful, Thanks for sharing.
