By June 1, 2012

Follow me on:

Jakarta's first ever haute couture afternoon tea will be pouring regularly between June 18 and 30 at the Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta, at Cinnamon in collaboration with ELIE SAAB Le Parfum.  To coincide with this exclusive event, the Mandarin Oriental's chefs will be serving up a sophisticated afternoon tea menu that draws inspiration from the collections of haute couturier Elie Saab.

The Haute Couture Afternoon Tea includes delectable selections like Smoked Salmon served with curry bread; Pistachio Baklava; Pineapple Mousse with orange segment and candied orange; Dome Passion with bitter chocolate ganache; traditional English Fruit Cake with exotic fruits and nuts; and Raisin Scones served with an assortment of jams and cream cheese.

Guests who make reservations for the tea buffet (IDR 200,000 plus 21% government tax and service charge) will also get to personally discover ELIE SAAB Le Parfum, and will receive an exclusive gift set (while stocks last).

Born in Beirut, Elie Saab is most famous for couture gowns frequently spotted on the red carpet.  Her gowns have become favorites of celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Mila Jovovich, and Beyonce.  ELIE SAAB Le Parfum brings the brand's classiness to more women who want to take home the Elie Saab experience for themselves.

Cinnamon serves Afternoon Tea daily from 2:30 to 6:00pm.  Cinnamon's afternoon teas change every month to allow guests to experience the best of the season's offerings. Reservations are recommended; guests can book on +62 21 2993 8823 or via e-mail at mojkt-cinnamon@mohg.com.
