For those who prefer their afternoon sugar-kick to be more balanced with savory nibbles, COCO’s new Tropical Matcha Afternoon Tea is the perfect choice for a break from a shopping escapade to Tsim Sha Tsui. Delicate green tea-flavored desserts, such as Uji Kyoto Matcha Warabi Mochi with Okinawa Black Sugar Syrup and Uji Kyoto Matcha Mousse with Konjac Jelly and Pink Chocolate Rice Krispies are mix-matched with tropical flavors of aromatic Coconut Pineapple Cream, Coconut Crumble with Caramelized Pineapple.
The powdered Japanese green tea selected by the Executive Pastry Chef of The Mira Hong Kong, Rick Chan, is the green tea powder from the Nishimura Banchaya Honten, Winner of the 41st Uji Tea Competition by the Kyoto Prefectural Tea Industry Cooperative, and a family with an impressive record of tea farming tradition which dates back to the 8th century. Elegantly yet playfully presented set of savories includes Mini Matcha & Salmon Rice Onigiri, a light Matcha Foie Gras Crème Brulee, and a Japanese-style Fruit Sando – or fruit and cream sandwich with floral fresh fruit arrangements in-between pillowy milk bread.
Each tea set is a chance to enjoy a blissful moment with premium TWG tea selection or one of COCO’s signature coffees at just $428 for 2 Guests with optional flute of champagne at $120 extra.
