I've always had a soft spot for Aesop products. I'm in love with their anti-blemish mask (if you break out, dab some on, leave it overnight and the blemish dries out immediately) and their fabulous face oil. So when I heard that Feast (the restaurant at EAST Hotel in Quarry Bay) was doing a crossover afternoon tea, I was keen to check it out.
The afternoon tea is inspired by Aesop's signature ingredients such as citrus rinds, juniper, sage, parsley seed rosemary, walnut, lavender and rose. Items on the tea include Smoked Salmon and Citrus-Dressed Cream Cheese Profiteroles, Duck and Juniper Wraps, Grilled Chicken with Sage in Parsley Seed Bread Finger Sandwiches, Rosemary-infused Focaccia Bread with Parma Ham and Provolone, Lavender and Honey Teacakes, Lime and Basil Macaroons, Chocolate Rose Creams, and Cranberry, Walnut and Praline Tartlets, along with a choice of tea or coffee. If you go on Saturday between 3pm to 4pm, there will be Aesop demonstrations onsite to introduce their full range of products.
The Aesop afternoon tea is priced at HK$165 for two from Monday to Sunday throughout November from 3pm to 5:30pm. All guests will receive a special Aesop gift together with a a complimentary skin consultation and product samples catered for their skin at the Aesop store at Cityplaza.
