What better way for an event debut at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Hotel in Thailand, than an Afternoon Tea with the launch of the Silver Jubilee Gourmet! To present the Afternoon Tea was Dilhan C. Fernando – Director of the School of Tea and son of Dilmah founder Merrill J. Fernando, Robert Schinkel – award winning mixologist and Dilmah Brand Ambassador and Au- celebrated tea sommelier. Dilhan C. Fernando and Au led the tea pairing session while Robert Schinkel led the mixology component.
Upon arrival, guests were welcomed with the rare Ceylon Silver Tips White Tea in champagne flutes, paired with fresh strawberries. The Afternoon Tea menu included Dilmah’s transcendent Silver Jubilee collection of boutique teas and the highly exclusive and rare Uva Seasonal Flush of 2016, paired with, what Dilmah Tea Gastronomy has always been known for- tea inspired delicacies. Guests enjoyed Natural Jasmine Green Tea paired with Lapsang tea-infused aspic of Jamon Iberico and pickled apple, a cucumber finger sandwich with salted lemon jam, and goat cheese praline with orange gel; Silver Jubilee Earl Grey Tea paired with lemon tea financier, blonde chocolate cream puff and a light cheesecake; The Pure Darjeeling Single Region paired with a pistachio éclair and strawberry macaroon; Organic Sencha paired with the hotel’s signature coconut cake; and the pièce de résistance- The Uva Seasonal Flush of 2016 paired with green olive stuffed with vermouth gel.
