❤️💌Valentine's Day Afternoon Tea💌❤️
Lobby Lounge, Marriott Al Forsan
Highlights: Eclairs, Savory Sandwiches, Canele, 25% off with Best BitesTo raisin or not to raisin? When it comes to scones, I say, raisin! Now I know I may be in the minority, but Marriott Al Forsan has sided with me and their scones have raisins and it warms my heart! 💘The overall presentation of the spread is amazing, a very nice selection of savory and sweet with a lot of little Valentine’s touches. The scones are buttery and moist, served warm in a pastry basket alongside decadent Nutella churros, sweet crustoli type breadsticks, and canelé. I’m not kidding when I say I was daydreaming about canelé that very day, so I was delighted to see this custardy French pastry in the basket of treats!
The sandwiches, each cut into a cute heart shape, were lovely. Classic flavours of cucumber, salmon and roast beef. The roast beef was the best of the bunch, with a nice seedy bun and tender roast beef inside. The eclairs were yummmmm, bursting with tangy lemon curd and strawberry jam. The cute little “tea time man”, as we called him, was made from French macaron and raspberry filling, delicious! We saved the cute white chocolate bear for last. We almost couldn't bring ourselves to cut into him! He was filled with a rich milk chocolate and coconut mousse. No regrets! This afternoon tea is great value and comes with free-flow tea or coffee. Spread the love! ❤️
