One-Ninety Bar @ Four Seasons Singapore - Festive Weekend Afternoon Tea
Afternoon Tea gets christmassy at One-Ninety Bar at Four Seasons Singapore. From now till the end of December, One-Ninety Bar shall get you into the mood of Christmas with its Festive Weekend Afternoon Tea.
The Afternoon Tea set comes with 2 rounds of coffee or tea. Coffee lovers, you won't be disappointed with the freshly brewed coffee. Looking at the coffee being brewed in front of me really got me into the mood!
The Savoury tier comes with 5 items - Beef Pastrami On Rye Bread, Honey Pumpkin On Sour Dough, Egg Salad Tart With Caviar And Salmon Roe, Tea Smoked Salmon On Seven Grain Bread and Smoked Turkey Ham On Whole Meal Bread. The highlight for me was the Tea Smoked Salmon On Seven Grain Bread for its mouth-filling texture.
The 2nd tier is filled with classic Christmas flavours - the rummy, spiced dried fruits that spells Christmas in every way. I like the Holiday Stollen, and I suggest having it first when they are served warm to you. If you enjoy a cinnamon bun, this will definitely satisfy your appetite. It is softer than a regular stollen, and less sweet too. Both the Mince Tart and Fruit Cake were just as yummy.
The 3rd tier has a couple of adorable looking sweets such as the Green Tea Azuki Bean Tart that is shaped into a Christmas tree and a pretty sky blue Peppermint Macaron embossed with a snowflake. Or something truly symbolic to Christmas, there's a mini Hazelnut Praline Log Cake as well.
The Freshly Baked tray allures you with its puffy Pumpkin Raisin Scones, Vanilla Scones, as well as crusty and buttery Brown Sugar Shortbread. I'm not a fan of scones that are too rich in butter, and thankfully these are not. Hence I love how I could really slather the Devonshire Clotted Cream over, along with the tart Strawberry-Rose Preserve and Spiced Cranberry Preserve. The shortbread is also a delightful addition to this section, which is not so commonly available elsewhere.
Available on Saturdays and Sundays 2pm to 5pm until the end of December 2019, the Festive Weekend Afternoon Tea is $48 per adult with a choice of tea, coffee or Audrey’s signature Valrhona hot chocolate or tops up to $62 per adult for an additional glass of Kir Royale.
