Before we begin Baccarat’s afternoon tea, a trio of tea-based beverages.
First, Rose Petal. Strawberries, ginger, and lemon juice. Rosewater and sparkling water…
Second, Rosemary Matcha. Ippodo matcha and rosemary simple syrup. Yuzu, ginger, and lemon. Sparkling water.
Third, Matcha Cocktail. Cachaça and velvet falernum. Egg whites and lavender syrup.
And now it is time for the Prince of Wales afternoon tea…a vegan (!) afternoon tea. It’s the newest addition to the line-up at Baccarat. Other afternoon tea options: King Louis XV (and the former Prince of Wales format), Valentine’s Tea, and Tsar Nicholas II.
Each afternoon tea service pairs with a specific tea and the new Prince of Wales goes with Earl Grey D’Or (from Mariage Frères).
