Pomegranate Oolong
Comment: Tasteless tea

Caffe Latte by Illy cafe
Comment: Much better than the tea

Harumi Bento Box (from top left to bottom right)- Steamed Egg Curd with Mushroom, Simmered Bamboo Shoot, Crab Mayonnaise Maki Roll, Baby Octopus Tempura, Salmon & Avocado Tartar, Fried Wild Yam with Miso Paste, Croquette Sandwich, Chicken Ham & Egg Sandwich, Shrimp & Chicken Ball and Sushi Rice wrapped in Fried Tofu.
Comment: I liked only the chicken ham & egg sandwich, salmon & avocado tartar and steamed egg curd with mushroom.

Selection of Sweets
Comment: I liked the Itchigo Tart (fresh strawberry & sakura cream), Blossom Bite (Cherry Mousse & Green Tea Sponge) and Plain & Matcha Scones

Itchigo Verine- Mascarpone cream, chocolate mousse, strawberry jelly and chocolate brownie
Comment: I liked this, not overly sweet, the best dessert in the selection of desserts other than the scones

Shiseido Macaron- Almond shell, Sakura raspberry cream
Comment: The cream was fine but the shell was too sweet for me, pretty macaron though

     The gorgeous presentation of the Sakura Spring Afternoon Tea caught my eye but taste wise could be improved. If you are a sweet person, you may try this high tea set while enjoying top-notch service. There is nothing fancy about the savory items. If you are here for a chit chat session with your besties and take lots of photos with the gorgeous view, this is definitely one of the best place to go. Be sure to make a reservation for this afternoon tea!
