The best High Tea in Hong Kong - The Ritz-Carlton


I have a new High Tea crush. I tried it, loved it, and keep thinking about it. It's the High Tea from The Lounge & Bar, at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong. Amazing atmosphere, decor, views, food quality and presentation make of this my new favorite high tea in Hong Kong.
The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong is one of the highest hotels in Asia, occupying the 102 to 118 floors of the International Commerce Centre (ICC), Hong Kong's tallest building. The Ritz Carlton has two choices for high tea, a traditional one on the 102nd floor at The Lounge and Bar, and the signature chocolate afternoon tea on the 103th floor at Café 103.





The High Tea at The Lounge & Bar was everything one could wish for when it comes to a perfect high tea experience. Being the second tallest High Tea in Hong Kong right after the one just above on Café 103, the views from The Lounge & Bar are stunning! I loved the grand and modern ambiance too, very different from the traditional decor you would picture for an English afternoon tea, and this made it even the more special. The tables are spacious and not too close to each other, so even though the restaurant was full on our visit, the atmosphere was totally relaxing, as an afternoon tea is supposed to be!  The food was delicious, and the whole experience was magical. I couldn't recommend this afternoon tea enough!

Would I recommend it? If someone visited Hong Kong and wanted to go for high tea, this is where I would take them, and that's all that needs to be said :)

  5. This place looks absolutely magical, and the cakes look delicious! I've never been to high tea before and I know there are plenty of amazing places here in London where I could go to. Perhaps I should treat my mother-in-law soon and take her out - I can only imagine an afternoon in a lovely place like this one would be very memorable!

  12. I am travelling to Singapore on 10th July and onto HK on 16th July, I'm treating my dad to a bucket list tour and we start with the first bit of his list with afternoon tea at Raffles in Singapore washed down with a few slings. I was looking at The Pennisula & The Ritz Carlton to enjoy tea in HK, I couldn't decide which one but this review tipped the balance for me and I have just emailed to make a reservation. I have worked in hospitality all my life to a very high standard so my expectations are high, this place looks awesome and I can't wait to try it out. Thanks for helping with the decision making process and I will let you know after if its all that you say it is (my point of view of curse)


    A big thanks
