New Botanical Afternoon Tea at Statement

Statement is an elegant dining outlet located at Tai Kwun, the city's latest heritage and arts hub in Central. The restaurant occupies the second floor of the former Central Police Station, a heritage building that has been lovingly preserved. The elegant colonial building provides the perfect setting for Statement, which serves high-end modern British cuisine.
 
We were there to sample Statement's new offering of its Botanical Afternoon Tea set. Hong Kong's fondness for afternoon tea is longstanding; the popularity of the experience has been amplified as more restaurants and cafes serve up a dizzying array of scones, savoury delicacies, desserts and fancy teas.
 
Statement's Afternoon Tea is in collaboration with Ruinart Champagne. The set starts at $288 per person (for a minimum of two persons) or $388 per person with a glass of Ruinart Blanc De Blancs Champagne. Alternatively, you can also order purple Butterfly pea flower tea and Tanqueray gin. And for extra $500 per person, you will also be served Osetra Caviar Served with Plum and Mimosa Garnish.
The presentation is striking: a spirally metallic tray engraved with Ruinart's insignia, and a hot Instagram object. Savoury items comprise replenishable finger sandwiches that include Roast Turkey; Short-Rib Pâté and Cream Cheese; Cucumber, Celery and Dill; Beetroot, Carrot and Pesto ; and Smoked Salmon.
 
The raisin scones are made with rose perfume, Cornish clotted cream, and homemade rose and peach jam and raspberry jam – all of which are excellent. Then the bite-sized desserts are surreptitiously filling. They include Bittersweet Chocolate Cake, Salted Caramel with Rose Macaron ; Cinnamon and Carrot Shortbread Cake; Blueberry, Lemon and Lavender Cupcake; and Passion Fruit Mousse and Biscuit Crumble.
 
The tea set also comes with a fine selection of popular British teas. The flower-themed afternoon tea is available till June, so why not spend a relaxing and chatty afternoon with your friends at Statement and enjoy its afternoon delight. It is a perfect way to while away a wonderful afternoon.
