Christmas Themed Afternoon Tea Set
It's always nice to try a new tea set in an environment that makes you feel completely pampered. That's why I was happy to be invited to experience afternoon tea at the Trump Hotel Vancouver again. Similar to my last visit in the Fall, tea is served in their chic champagne lounge filled with plush booth seating and low marble tables. Here's a fun fact: serving tea and delicate treats on low tables and chairs was precisely the way that the practice of afternoon tea was intended. It's meant to be a time for leisure in the afternoon, bridging the gap between lunch and dinner. Within the elegant confines of the Trump Champagne Lounge paired with their five-star service, you and yours will really enjoy this winter tea get-together.
The new Christmas Nutcracker themed tea set features sweet treats in the shape of traditional Christmas motifs like reindeer eggnog, chocolate Christmas trees, Mouse King chocolates, gift box chocolate cake and more.
The savouries balance out this theme with a more serious and sophisticated offering like beet & goat cheese cone, mini bagel & smoked salmon sandwich and even baked oysters! This was definitely my first time having oysters during tea time.
Whimsical Christmas themed sweets sculpted into classic holiday motifs. The reindeer eggnog was my favourite. I also appreciated the chocolate art in crafting the Mouse King chocolate.
I find the scones at Trump hotels improving with each visit. Like Notch8 in the Hotel Vancouver, they also offer seasonal flavours for their scones. On my last visit, I had the pumpkin scone for the Fall season and this time I enjoyed the Christmas Morning Scone which is composed of cranberry, nutmeg, vanilla, orange and rosemary. It was served along with two other flavours: Spinach & Feta and Koto Uji-Matcha.
The luxurious tea collection is from TWG. There are over 11 to choose from for black teas. For red/roiboos, three; green tea, six; and herbal, one.
The Nutcracker Afternoon Tea will be available during the winter holiday season until January 2nd. I enjoyed the very festive atmosphere at Trump Hotel and more importantly, I also appreciated the thoughtfully prepared winter themed foods on the tea set. I think you will too! Until our next tea date.
