Afternoon Tea Appreciation at The Cake Club

Tea time at The Cake Club

Diamond Hotel Philippines brings the celebrated Afternoon Tea experience together with premium tea brand, Ronnefeldt.  Join the Afternoon Tea Appreciation event at The Cake Club, Bonifacio High Street on July 12 or 26, 2014, from 3 to 6 in the afternoon.

Together with Ronnefeldt Germany, Diamond Hotel has designed a special Afternoon Tea Appreciation session for guests and this unique tea time offers more than the usual luxury tea experience. The Afternoon Tea Appreciation class is a three-hour event where each attendee will be guided to know the History of Tea, different kinds of Tea and Infusions, proper Tea Tasting Ceremony, the difference of Afternoon Tea and High Tea, the Do’s and Don’ts of Tea Etiquette, and proper Tea Pairings.

The social inspiration for the elegant affair is attributed to Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861). Before tea came to Great Britain, the English generally ate two meals a day – breakfast and dinner, it’s hardly surprising that she frequently felt a “sinking feeling” in the late afternoons. Anna adopted the idea of afternoon tea and would invite her friends to meet her at Belvoir Castle, her summer residence, for an extra meal in the afternoon. This summer gathering was so popular that the Duchess continued it when she returned to London and soon other circles took up the practice of inviting friend over for tea. It quickly became a time for the rich and elite to get together, relax and share idle gossips. Today, it has evolved into a sophisticated casual event for good friends to share and enjoy.

The Afternoon Tea Appreciation event is only Php1,300 nett inclusive of light snacks and a giveaway.  For inquiries call 528-3000 ext. 1121 or 621-3176.
