4everLuv is always on the look out for places to go on a special occasion. The Xi Shi Lounge at the Shangri-La Hotel welcomes in the Year of the Horse with a Chinese inspired Afternoon Tea, from January 31st to February 28th 2014.

We sampled BBQ pork brioche buns, curried tofu and almond wraps, duck spring rolls, and smoked salmon bagels with yuzu mayonnaise. The afternoon classics like orange infused scones with house made clotted creams and a selection of jams was delicious. The sweets were a twist on the traditional with green tea opera cake, egg tarts and black sesame rice balls in ginger soup.

We fell in love with the willow pattern tea service, which has a romantic fable of 4everLuv conquering an arranged marriage.

Come with your bridesmaids, girlfriends, mother and mother in law for a wonderful afternoon, of gracious service and tasty nibbles not to mention an assortment of high quality teas to drink while you discuss your future wedding.

Oh did we mention that any guest born in the Year of the Horse will receive a complimentary afternoon tea*

Chinese New Year Afternoon Tea is available from January 31 until February 28, for $38 per person. Afternoon tea is served daily from 11:00am to 5pm, with live classical piano on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
