Lobby Lounge – Holiday Afternoon Tea [MEDIA INVITE]

Snow Man @ Lobby Lounge at Conrad Centennial Singapore

Celebrate this Festive Period with Christmas Theme Afternoon Tea curated by the team at Conrad Centennial Singapore. This delightful Christmas theme is available from now till 3rd January 2020.

We are welcomed by “The Grinch”. This welcome mocktail is made from mango, lime and soda water. Sugar crust is added on the lips of the cup to sweeten the concoction more. The Grinch has a nice colour combination, yellow mango at the bottom, blue lime in the middle and clear soda water at the top. Once you stir it, the green colour will slowly engulf the whole drinks. Luckily the drink tasted sweet and refreshing, unlike The Grinch that is full of bitterness towards Christmas.

Weekend Afternoon Tea consists of 4 courses, starting with Seafood Platter. Your palate will be treated with fresh Poached Boston Lobster, Irish Oysters and Fresh Prawns. The lobster prawns are firm and springy, and I have both of them plain and really enjoy the natural sweetness of the seafood. This season, the Irish Oysters are more subtle. I added a few drops of vinaigrette dressing to bring out the flavour of the oysters.

Slow Cook Beef Brisket, Mushroom and Caramelized Onion, Toast, Cheese Sauce and Guacamole Parsley is the second course. The beef brisket is tender and easily pulled apart when you cut thought solid toast. The bread used here is solid and hard, suitable to handle the heavy meat and jus from ingredients. I just wish there is some gherkin to balance the richness in this toast.

This time around I ordered Orange Pekoe tea to pair with my afternoon tea. The tea is aromatic and well balanced.

The third course is the combination of sweet and savoury bites base with festive theme. I started with the savoury selections first. Roasted Turkey, Orange Marmalade and Brie Sandwich in Rye Bread & Multigrain Tartlet Roasted Chicken, Cranberries and Raisin Jam, Baby Cress are my pick. The combination of savoury poultry together with sweetness from the fruits sure brought out the flavour of Christmas.

The sweet selections showcase to us the design that synonymous with Christmas. These include Chestnut Mont Blanc, Snow Man, Christmas Gift Box, Santa Sleigh and Christmas Ball.

My personal pick is the Snow Man and Santa Sleigh. Snow Man contains mango fillings, light and mildly sweet. Meanwhile, Santa Sleigh has a complex design and it delivers solid chocolate flavour. Since this is Christmas desserts, you can expect the desserts to be bold and sweeter. Do try and let me know which one you like as well.

The final course is Scones served with Clotted Cream, Mixed Spiced Apricot Jam & Homemade Strawberry Jam. There are two types of scones, plain and cranberry. My favourite mix is always the combo of strawberry jam and clotted cream. I find the apricot is bit too sweet for my liking.
