Strawberry Monts Blancs, meringue cookies and berry puffs and crispy bread topped with strawberry slices are all infused with the aroma of ripe strawberries, while strawberry jewelry, the signature Strawberry Afternoon Tea dessert served in an elegant jewelry case, adds a final layer of surprise. A choice of jewel-like desserts for every taste is available, inviting the perfect selfie. Savory items, served in generous portions, include squid ink chips with strawberry gochujang sauce, pastrami and onion sandwiches, mini tarts with smoked salmon and prawn and brandade croquettes.
