Lobby Lounge – Simply Strawberries Afternoon Tea [MEDIA INVITE]

Calling strawberries lovers, Lobby Lounge at Conrad Centennial Singapore is showcasing simply / everything strawberries afternoon tea. Executive Chef Mandar Mandav and his team use strawberries from Japan, South Korea, USA and Australia to curate these strawberries treats.

The afternoon tea starts with Strawberry Mocktails. It is refreshing and packs with strawberries, a sign of what is to come in the afternoon tea.

Soon after, the staff deliver Lobby Lounge Signature Multi-Tiered Afternoon Tea tray to our table. The crew gave a short explanation on each item and suggested that we start from the lowest tier and work our way up.

We commence with Homemade Strawberry Scone with Homemade Strawberry Jam and Clotted Cream. The warm scones release a sweet strawberry aroma. It is slightly crusted externally, while the interior remains soft and crumbly. The strawberry jam is solid, yet not overly sweet and goes well with the clotted cream.

Premium Japanese Strawberry with Valrhona Chocolate Dip (One serving only). The Japanese strawberries are big, juicy and sweet. Although the Japanese strawberries are delicious to eat on their own, the chocolate sauce seems to enrich the taste further. Yumz!.

The savoury part of the afternoon tea consists of Peanut Butter and Jelly with Cream Cheese and Avruga Caviar; Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Pincho; Mango Strawberry Tartlets; and Strawberry Tomato Mozzarella on Toast.

LD and I like the Peanut Butter and Jelly the most. The bread is soft and moist, while the peanut butter and jelly blend well together. The surprise come from the Cream Cheese and Avruga Caviar, which made this mini sandwich irresistible.

Mango Strawberry Tartlet
My second pick is Strawberry Tomato Mozzarella on Toast. It is delicately assembled and the creamy mozzarella cheese bodes well with the strawberry and balsamic vinegar. I might borrow this idea and make a big bowl of salad from the same ingredients next time we have a gathering.

The sweet part of the afternoon tea consists of Classic Strawberry Shortcake; Almond Strawberry Mini Tartlet, Mascarpone Strawberry Swiss Roll; and Earl Grey and Strawberry Mousse. LD personal pick is the Mascarpone Strawberry Swiss Roll. The strawberry flavoured Swiss roll is soft, moist and topped with a plump and juicy strawberry.

My pick is Classic Strawberry Shortcake. The sponge cake is light, soft and moist carries the diced strawberries and cream perfectly. #Strawberrygasm

Dragonwell Zheijiang Ronnefeldt Tea
All these delicious treats are paired perfectly with the wide selection of unlimited Ronnefeldt Tea and Brazilian Coffee.
