Weekend Tea for love high in the clouds at The Petrus

February is all about love and romance.
At Shangri-La, they will be serving "Tea for Love" during the whole of February at the Island Gourmet and Lobby Lounge.
During the weekends you can experience this at the Lobster bar and grill where there is a spectacular view of Hong Kong.

It is served with Perrier Jouet which has a dry and savoury note that goes well with the items in the tea set.

Started off with raisin and plain scones served with preserves and clotted cream.
Each bite was divine because the scone was crumbly and soft with lashings of clotted cream and a tad of jam to give it some sweetness.

Here was the tea set.

On the top tier, there was Perrier-Jouët mousse, Signature lychee milk chocolate sticks, Red berry fruit tart with Perrier-Jouët rose petal and
Lemon cake with red puff

To my surprise, they were not that sweet.
My favourite had the be the chewy lychee chocolate stick and mousse which was light and fruity.
On the second tier, there was Manjari chocolate with frosted strawberries, Raspberry macarons, Cherry and Perrier-Jouët cheesecake, Swiss rolls.

The Swiss rolls were wonderfully soft with delicious strawberry whipped cream in the middle and the chocolate dipped strawberries were a treat with the champagne.
The bottom tier were my favourite savouries!!
-Foie gras terrine, love apple and Perrier-Jouët jelly, chervil
-Jamón ibérico, green asparagus, quail egg, pink pepper
-Alaskan crab meat, rye bread, Thai basil
-Gravlax marinated with Perrier-Jouët, dill Sriracha mayonnaise
-Poached Boston lobster, vanilla infusion, pearls

The foie gras terrine was nutty and velvety while the lobster was springy.
As well as the Tea of Love, they have also created the AMOUR which is a refreshing light lemon sponge cake with Champagne infused cream.
