As I’ve been getting a (tad bit) older, afternoon tea has become one of my favorite things to do. It’s like one of the semi-affordable luxuries that allows me to really disconnect and relax.
Recently, I was invited to try out the Afternoon Tea Set at Marco Polo’s Connect Lounge. The Connect Lounge is located at the 24th floor of Marco Polo Manila and it has some of the best views of the Manila Skyline. It may be called The Connect Lounge but I think it’s the perfect place to disconnect from the bustling city life and re-connect with oneself!
The afternoon tea set begins with the Amuse Bouche Sherbet of the day.
Followed by a customized set of pastries from a wide array of selections such as mini cakes and a choice from four different flavors of Baguettes namely Tomato, Parsley, Corn, Original, and Squid Ink, with preferred toppings on top which will vary depending on the availability.
You may choose from the twelve flavors of tea, like English Breakfast, Jasmine Gold, and Caribbean Summer, or a cup of coffee.
For drinks, I opted for an upgrade to a glass of champagne!
Overall, I had such a lovely time having afternoon tea at The Connect Lounge. I would definitely do it again. The food, ambience, and service altogether was impeccable.
Afternoon Tea is available daily from 2:00PM-6:00PM for Php 788 good for 2 persons.
