Hong Kong PART 2

I so loved all the amazing tea shops and small business owners selling all kinds of cups of tea! Known as CHA.

But my absolute fav’ place was for tea was at The Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong 🇭🇰 .The Peninula’s legendary Afternoon Tea is they say a ritual routed in British Custom with the Duchess of Bedford originally bringing afternoon 🍵 in vogue in 1830. Today the Grande Dame of Hong Kong honors this general tradition by elevating the art of Afternoon Tea in the legendary surrounds of the huge and grand lobby.

Here warm,buttery scones are accompanied by organic jam and clotted cream served on tiered, silver cake stands, alongside gourmet finger sandwiches and fine pastries.

My husband and I enjoyed the most delicious hot tea, warm scones, tea pastries, macarons, mini decadent chocolates ended the tea time.

Tea choices served were Assam, Darjeeling,Earl grey, Peninsula Breakfast Tea and Peninsula blend.

You could also select from: Almond, Caramel,Cinnamon, 🥭 Passionfruit, 🍑 Peach, Raspberry and 🌹 Rose teas.IMG_4134.JPG

The extra special topping was a glass of 🥂 Deutz Peninsula Brut 🍾 champagne.

It was so delightful and decadent! The grandeur of the hotel itself was quite the experience. Being in Hong King made it even better!

I glanced over at my husband mid-way of our feast and his eyes were glazed and I have not seen him so content in a long time. He like I am is almost always working. He told me he was so relaxed and found the process of enjoying Afternoon Tea very very relaxing. It was so nice to see!

I have been to High Teas in Europe and all over the US but have NEVER had a high Tea experience like in Hong Kong. The staff was wondeful too.

If you ever have to go to China on business or travel for pleasure. Try and take the time to have tea at the HK Peninsula Hotel. Well worth the luxurious and delightful trip!

From now through Christmas I will post daily tips and a few D.I.Y’s too.

You know the reason for the season and for me I don’t think it should be about stressing about and running all around town or online for gifts. However,that’s how it goes and I do LOVE to give. A gift,the gift of my time,a yummy baked good or giving a big hug and simply letting someone know how much you care for them. I don’t think there is enough love being spread around.

So, let’s get started with a new set of bath and body treats!

Rejuvelle is a brand of bath Bon Bon’s you know like the French yummy treats.But these aromatic delights wrapped in gorgeousness are made for the bath and not to eat.They indeed are lush bath bombs in a gift box.

Created by a mom for her daughter Alexa who was diagnosed with an auto immune disease which affects her skin. That is how these type bath bombs were born.A mother’s love and wanting other children and the whole family to enjoy this fragrant,good for the skin fizzy sensations in a tub.

They come in a variety of fragrances. Like Pink Grapefruit, Lavender,Vanilla and more.And something else to love is no ring around the tub!

Names include: Stressed Moms,Garden of the Gods,Vanilla Surprise and you won’t believe this but they even have one for SINUS Congestion relief!

Who knew you can float in a tub of lush bath bombs and they can give you sinus relief?

I think people need to chill out more and need to take a bath not a quick shower all the time. The bathtub is a great escape. If you have some stressed out gals and moms on your list. Think these beautiful bath bombs. My bedroom smells divine and I am hoping in a bath when I  finish posting this.If you have children this would be a safer to use fizzy gift for the bath.
