Cafe 103 Ritz-Carlton [Hong Kong] - Sakura Afternoon Tea by Tokyo Ritz-Carlton's Chef Hideaki Tanaka

  Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong and Cafe 103 is currently doing a Japanese Sakura Afternoon Tea set, with the creations made by the Pastry and Senior Sous-Chef from Tokyo's Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Available from 1st of April to 13th of May except on Easter Weekend, it is priced at HKD $638 to $658 for two persons. For the included Drinks, customers can choose from their seasonal Sakura Tea or Hot Chocolates, as well as the normal Tea and Coffees.

Chef Tanaka from Tokyo Ritz-Carlton -
He is very friendly and explained in details about each of his Creations, albeit mostly in Japanese

A Sakura Easter Egg - 
A reminder that Sakura Blossom will happen close to Easter period...

Sakura Afternoon Tea Set for 2 Persons - 
The following items are created by Chef Tanaka.  There will also be around 2 Extra Daily items as a Surprise on the day of visit.   The highlights to me were the Shio salted Sakura Manjyu's,  Shrimps & Sakura Prawns Bread,  Sakura Berries Soy Milk Panna Cotta, and the Sakura Tropezienne with a crumbly top.  The Yuzu & Strawberries tart is actually quite refreshing sour too..

Matcha, Sakura and Berries Cakes - 
Layered almost like an Opera cake.  I think the Matcha taste in this could be stronger too.

The Afternoon Tea Set includes Drinks for 2 - Veuve Clicquot Champagne is Extra
Apart from these pretty morsels,  there will be 2 extra items presented as a Surprise element during your Visit.  Personally I think many Afternoon Teas in town look better than they end up tasting,  but on this occasion I really enjoyed this Tea Set as the taste was supple and softly spoken in accent just like Chef Tanaka,  plus not overly sweetened or made pretty with marzipane. The Sakura flowers input was only subtly perfumed...  As a bonus point,  I found out afterwards that we are also getting the real deal as it looks identical to the one served in Tokyo currently:  Tokyo Ritz-Carlton Sakura Afternoon Tea
