After a long day on your feet exploring one of the liveliest cities in the world, it was great to have pre-booked much needed afternoon tea break... somewhere to put your feet up, drench your thirst with a cold Iced Muscat Tea and a Pai Mu Tan white tea melded with vanilla and slices of tropical fruit, whilst peering over a floor-to-ceiling window view of Tokyo on the 38th floor. I do like to sample high teas from all over the world, and although this set was not the most impressive, it was rather traditional yet prettily presented. For us, at that time, we just wanted relaxation time, sit in comfort and wind down after a busy day on our feet. Of course, it was just another excuse to indulge and spoil ourselves.
A much more varied and interesting afternoon tea, please click here to see a picture blog of a popular afternoon tea I had at the Ekki Bar & Grill (Restaurant now changed its name to MOTIF Restaurant & Bar) at the Four Seasons Hotel, Marunouchi, Tokyo.
