The Langham Hong Kong Introduces The Ladurée Afternoon Tea Wth A Brand New Flavour


The Langham, Hong Kong x  Ladurée introduces The Ladurée Afternoon Tea and unveil an exclusive Langham flavoured macaron at Palm Court. It is filled with a custom-made rose ganache, complemented with notes of ginger, and sandwiched between two beautifully baked pink macaron shells. The delicate confections were designed and delivered from Paris to guarantee that each characteristic consisted of a mouth-watering crunch with a sweet finish.


This Ladurée creation is a reflection of the infamous Marie-Antoinette tea, which is a marriage of black tea from China and India with flavours of rose petals, citrus fruits, and honey. The Langham, Hong Kong’s Executive Chef Pedro Samper composes an original pastry piece called the Royal Blueberry Mousse with Ladurée Crystallised Violets. The light and airy mousse rests on a home-baked chocolate biscuit that provides a contrast in textures. Fresh blueberries, candied violet flower petals and white chocolate couveture are adorned on top. Served on the tailor-made “Langham Rose” Wedgwood tea ware, other accompanying sweet pastries have been designed to complement Ladurée flavours and colours. Guests can expect a Grand Marnier Floating Island, Orange and Ginger Flavoured French Canelé and a Praline Yuzu Tart.


On the savoury side, Chef Pedro’s petite bites range from smoked duck breast with mango chilli jam, to parma ham and tuna roulade with basil pineapple salsa, and free range chicken and liver pate with fig compote. The Palm Court bakery also includes a warm selection of plain and golden raisin scones served with Devonshire clotted cream with strawberry and rose preserve. Promotion ends 31st December 2015 and for reservations please call +852 2132 7898 or email tlhkg.fbservicecentre@langhamhotels.com
