(SPOT.ph) To partake in afternoon tea is not just an indulgence, but an art, or so we'd argue. The British tradition began as a way to sate the hunger pangs in between lunch and dinner—today it's a whole affair that involves tea, coffee, and other beverages along with savory and sweet bites for nibbling on alongside. Part and parcel of afternoon tea today is a visual element, be it in the location's interiors, or how the food and drinks look, and one ongoing afternoon-tea run implores you to channel your chic side, bring out your best frock, and dig into sips and bites that are as much a treat for the tongue as they are for the eyes. Check out the Kate Spade Afternoon Tea that you can try for a limited time at Raffles Makati.
Dress up and unwind at the Kate Spade afternoon tea at Raffles Makati:
The Kate Spade Afternoon Tea takes place at Writers Bar, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. and at 4 to 5:30 p.m. every day. Priced at P2,500 good for two, each set gets you a special tray of picturesque treats inspired by Kate Spade's Fall 2022—use of vibrant colors, retro patterns, and straight-cut sillhouettes and all.
These aren't mere eye candy, mind you. Just some of the must-try nibbles on the lineup are the Smoked Salmon & Dill Cream Crepes to Creamy Waldorf Tartlettes to Feta, Olives, & Avocado Pizzettes for savories; and the Butterscotch Macarons, Apple Cinnamon Verrine, and Cheddar Cheesecake with Candied Lemon for sweets. Scones, of course, are included—choose from Classic and Pumpkin variations—and you can choose from Writers Bar's range of tea and coffee to keep your food company.
This special themed tea is available only until November 14; you know what to do, fashion-forward Spotters. You can easily make your reservations via a Writers Bar online form.
