Throughout April families across Japan gather to enjoy picnics under the annual fragrant Sakura cherry tree blossoms. The talented pastry chefs at The Okura Prestige Bangkok have taken inspiration from this explosion of color and scent to create a special Sakura Blossom Afternoon Tea at Up & Above Bar.
Family and friends can indulge in savoury delights that include grilled sea scallops and mushroom tartare with balsamic; red tuna Tataki with black peppercorns and Wakame salad duck confit and berry tartlet; and Kani and avocado salad on rye bread. These moreish offerings pair beautifully with a glass of chilled Champagne or Prosecco.
Naturally no high tea would be complete without a selection of sweet treats and those served with the Sakura Blossom Afternoon Tea are redolent of the fragrant flavors of spring. They include cherry blossom custard, cream rolls, strawberry shortcake, seasonal Daifuku, Sakura macarons, Sakura chocolate truffle, pickled Sakura scones, and artisan clotted cream, jams and marmalade. All make the perfect companion to a cup of rich illy coffee or freshly brewed premium Saro and Mariage Frères teas.
Sakura Blossom Afternoon Tea is available daily from 1 April – 30 June 2018, 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. at Up & Above Bar.
