Having an afternoon tea at The Ritz Carlton Hotel has always been in my list. And weeks ago, I was invited for an afternoon tea at The Lobby Lounge, The Ritz Carlton Hotel. So knowing that I am a huge fan of afternoon tea, how could I say no to such lovely offer. And here I am, having afternoon tea on a fine afternoon at The Ritz Carlton Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Afternoon Tea at The Lobby Lounge
The Lobby Lounge offers a wide selection of tea for you to choose, ranging from the classic earl grey tea, green tea, vanilla tea, fruit tea and many more. So to pair with our afternoon tea, we opt for the Irish Whiskey Cream tea simply because the name and combination sounds so interesting. Don't you think so ? The tea has a slight whiskey scent to it but no worries it's just the smell and it wouldn't get you tipsy. Anyway, to my surprise, this Irish Whiskey Cream goes very well with the savories in the afternoon tea set.
Did I mention that I love the way they keep my tea warm ? It's just so thoughtful of them to put the teapot above an ashtray looking stand with candles in it to keep the pot of tea warm. Actually small little gesture like this, are the one that makes a place feels warm.
As for the savories, they have chicken pie, Quiche Lorraine, plain butter scone, raisin scone with assorted jam and clotted cream.
It comes with sandwiches like chicken ham, cheese and salted butter sandwiches, northern smoked salmon, cucumber, cream cheese and chives sandwiches, egg salad, mayonnaise and fresh herbs sandwiches, and last but not least tuna salad, watercress and mustard mayonnaise sandwiches.
Pastry selection is the special part of this afternoon tea set, as the daily pastry selection is created by the Chef, featuring a variety of cakes, tarts, eclairs and madeleines. So you'll be expecting different pastries everyday. :)
The afternoon tea at Lobby Lounge, The Ritz Carlton sets the score pretty high in the overall presentation and taste. All the pastries and savories are arranged delicately on the tier, ready to pamper my palette and also eyes. I have to say I am very satisfied with the afternoon tea set here and if I were to pick my favourite, it would be the scones ! The scones were simply made to perfection, it captures the balance of a cake and bread, just the way I like it. Needless to say, their pastries were great too. Cakes were spongy and flavorful, chocolate truffle was sinfully yummy, so all in all they were tip-top.
