Ready for a visit to one of the most venerable British institutions in Hong Kong? At the Peninsula, which has always been a player in Hong Kong's history, tea time is paradise.
Between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. in the vast lobby, where gargoyles look out over ivory and gold columns that rise to the ceiling, your tea awaits you. A violin quartet plays discreetly. Savoury canapés and cakes come first. There's English bacon, local crab, and delicious organic vegetables. Let yourself be seduced by the simplicity of the cucumber sandwich at Peninsula, which is among the best in the world. And rarely will you taste scones quite as exquisite as they are here.
For desserts, English clotted cream from Devonshire, of course. Which goes perfectly with the sublime local fruit jams organic, of course.
