Cafe 103 Ritz Carlton [Hong Kong] - Ecuador Republica Del Cacao Afternoon Tea

  Café 103 at Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong is constantly updating their Afternoon Tea promotions with different collaborations from around the World,  and for the November 2017 period,  they have welcomed the Confectioner and Pastry Chef Javier Guillen from Spain, who will work on the dessert items using the Ecuador Republica Del Cacao Chocolates ranging from 31-70% chocolates from Central and Southern America.   If you are a chocolate lover,  you may have heard that recently the Ecuador and Peruvian sourced chocolates are the hottest commodities right now,  with some heirloom cocoa bean varieties only available from these bordering countries, much like Venezuela chocolates have previously dominated the high end chocolate market for a period.  Here for the entirety of the November month,  you can sample some of these at the Café 103 Tea set at $388 per person,  or $638 for 2 persons including Drinks.  Weekend surcharge is $20.




Afternoon Tea Set with Drinks,  HKD $638 for Two Persons -
Weekend is HKD $658.




Scones with Clotted Cream & Jam -
I have tried Café 103's Tea set a few times lately,  and I believe the Scone quality has improved.  It is now more spongy with less gluten,  a pillowy feel which I like and more UK style aligned.





Ecuador Republica Del Cacao Chocolate Tea Set - Ritz-Carlton Café 103
This tea set is here to stay until end of November,  and with various natural Single Origin chocolates sourced from both Central America and South America,  including from Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, etc.  This really suits me as a pure Chocolate lover,  especially for Milk to Dark Chocolate items!



Coffee Bean with Mixed Berries,
also Feve Cacao with Caramel Milk Chocolate & Hazelnut Milk Ganache. 
The coffee pod shaped chocolate is actually quite strong in the coffee and chocolate taste,  it's definitely created for Chocolate lovers. 




Panama Hat with Passionfruit & Banana, Almond -
Red Rose of Raspberry mousse Chocolate crunch




Guanabana Jelly with Peanut Paste, Chocolate Mousse -
The Soursop fruit is according to some research very healthy,  and here only the clear juice is used from the Americans sourced fruit.  Which makes this Tea Set more the exotic and unique for Hong Kong context for me.. 





Azteca Chocolate with Coconut -
This Mexican symbol chocolate is fun to see and eat,  plus currently in the World,  the cuisines in the America's are almost up there with the Nordic and Spanish food movement!




It was again a Fun afternoon up here on the 103rd Floor of Ritz-Carlton Hotel,  Hong Kong -
These days,  with all the buzz going on around the city,  you just want to pull back and chillax a bit away from it all.  I am not sure how others who tried this Tea Set will feel,  but personally since I have spent some time living and working in that region before,  it brings back nostalgic memories and makes me want to plant a trip back to Central and South America to explore their Food Scene there again soon!
