It was a pleasure to be invited to the Lunar New Year Private Party at Shangri La Hotel London last week. We have collaborated with this fabulous luxury hotel for the past 7 years and hosted many exciting events such as tea tasting, tea-food and tea-alcohol pairings at The Shard. Last week, we were delighted to host the Tea Tasting event with the offering of 2 exclusive bespoke teas designed for Shangri La Hotel London as a part of their Lunar New Year celebration.
The signature Shangri La Welcome Tea, created by Camellia’s Tea House, is an uplifting and refreshing blend of white tea leaves, succulent apricot pieces and fine jasmine which combine deliciously to produce a delicate tea. This subtly sweet blend is filled with healthy antioxidant goodness that white and green tea are well known to offer. A marvel for the senses with its fruity aroma, elegant yellow rose buds and exotic mullein flowers which make it visually exquisite.
The delightful Shangri La Breakfast Tea has been designed using a blend of Assam, Sumatran and Yunnan teas. Hand blended to produce a wonderfully robust and dark infusion, this tea has a gentle and subtly spicy finish. This blend is a perfect tea for those who like a full-bodied black tea in the morning to help start their day.
Both bespoke teas are featured as Shangri La signature teas on their Afternoon Tea menu at Shangri La Hotel London.
