An exquisite hi-tea with DoubleTree by Hilton, Penang

By Anonymous - Monday, August 20, 2018

Warm scones, finger sandwiches, exquisite pastries, yes! It is no surprise that I am a huge fan of hi tea [ or afternoon tea to some ] and desserts. I love hi tea because of its bite sized pastries and cakes and how there seems to be something for everyone from savory to sweet. The fact that I can take nice #taitailife photos with my friends is also one of the reasons. Lol.

So, last weekend the butterflies of The Butterfly Project was invited to an exquisite hi-tea experience at DoubleTree Resort by Hilton *jumps in joy and it's not just any hi-tea, its a hi-tea with an activity “BB Beauty Art Deco”. Time to get crafty! Girls love beauty and hi-tea don’t they? And to make this even better, we all got really awesome goodies from Althea Korea in our goodies bag too! A big Thank You to DoubleTree Resort by Hilton , Althea Korea and The Butterfly Project! Kamsahamnida 감사합니다

Afternoon tea at  DoubleTree Resort by Hilton is presented at the Axis Lounge. The lounge is calm, comfy, fairly spacious and has a great view of the Straits of Malacca Ocean.

The hi-tea set came in a 3 tier setting with both savory and also sweet treats. It is RM64 for 2 pax with free flow tea. This is how the hi-tea sets looks like, from botton savory to top sweet.
I personally love the Jasmine scones with cream and strawberry jam, just the way I like it. I also loved the tea flavored chicken quiche. The seared fried shrimp on green tea bread was also very nice, the Green tea macaroon was a little too sweet for my liking. If you noticed the bread here is all Green Tea Sandwich bread, I am a fan of green tea so even the bread alone was really nice.

The set also comes with a wide selection of Dilmah T-Series Designer Gourmet Teas. If you are a fan of teas, you would know that Dilmah is a very well establish brand which originated from Ceylon [ renamed to Sri Lanka in 1972 ] and Ceylon has a reputation for producing some of the world’s finest tea.
We had the opportunity to choose from a wide selection and we choose one the Rose with French Vanilla, Moroccan MInt Green Tea and the Single Estate Darjeeling. Needless to say my favorite was the Rose with French Vanilla which has a pleasing aroma of roses and a tinge of vanilla. Perfect for a girly girly session like this one.
Sipping tea and gossiping would be a very usual hi tea activities for girls, but well not today. Because we were busy putting our creativity to test with the BB Beauty Art Deco activity. We were taught by Sidney on how to decorate our BB Cushions with cute decodens.
Our piping skills were put to test as we had to pipe the glue onto the Althea Petal Velvet Powder cover before placing the decodens on top. I may have baked in the past, but it is just so different with glue. Lol, but I successfully completed the task on the Althea Petal Velvet Powder  and I am pretty proud of my artwork. What do you think?

I was having so much fun decorating that I decorated the BB Cushion that I brought along “ A:Concept ”. Thanks to Mamasan Tammy for giving us more decodens to choose from! My decor got story one ok? I didn’t simply put only….what's being decorated on my BB Cushion are actually all my favorite stuff! There’s a ‘M’ which is McDonald’s because I always crave for McDonald’s French Fries, admit it, you guys do too! Then the ‘Biscuit’ and ‘cereal’, well those are my staple food, I eat them everyday and can survive on them alone and coffee. ‘Donuts’ and ‘Chocolates’ are my favorite snacks. I have a rack at home filled with chocolates for emergency. Lol. So, what are your favorite things?

We were also treated to a surprise by the nice people of DoubleTree Resort by Hilton, we were each treated to a freshly baked cookie! Not just any cookie, it is DoubleTree’s signature cookies which is still on of the best cookie around. This cookie is available worldwide. Lol. Well, we had a great time there and there were a lot of photo-taking spots perfect for OOTDs too! Oh yes, close to Axis Lounge is also the entrance to TeddyVille museum  where you can also take great photos. I will leave the TeddyVille Museum and Hotel review for another time as I will be having a stay-cation at DoubleTree Resort by Hilton,Penang  somewhere in October for someone’s birthday. So, what are you doing this weekend? Why not head over to DoubleTree Resort by Hilton, Penang and enjoy a girly session with your girlfriends? Deets below!
