(2 February 2023 – Bangkok, Thailand) Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, one of Bangkok’s most happening addresses, debuts an all-new afternoon tea that takes this afternoon pastime to new heights, quite literally. Served at the 30th floor at the Maa-Lai Library, the “Afternoon Tea at the Library” is the highest elevation afternoon tea served in town, crowned by a panoramic view of the lush Langsuan greenery surrounds.
Maa-Lai Library is inspired by the concept of a cosy library corner in a private home. A place where imagination is set aflutter, this contemporary cocoon is bathed in the afternoon sun’s rays, as the ideal venue for lounging, reading and enjoying light refreshments. The elevated, relaxing space has its own spacious terrace to enjoy the weather and the unobstructed vantage points so you can watch life happen.
Afternoon Tea at the Library fulfils its library theme with unique refreshments served in a customized wood “book”, the Pocket Edition and the Premium Edition.
The Pocket Edition includes highlights such as crab meat curry spring rolls, Pad Ka Prao chicken in edible Thai money bags, pecan tart with maple cream, and blood orange cream Choux au Craquelin. The Pocket Edition is available at THB 1,190++ per set for 2 persons and is served with premium Thai loose-leaf tea blends from Monsoon and coffee.
For an extra afternoon indulgence, the Premium Edition comes with an array of luxurious bites such as burrata cheese in Italian pesto, Canadian lobster ceviche with green apple and celery, 28-month Jamon Iberico Pata Negra served on sourdough bread, crunchy pistachio and lime meringue tarts, gianduia praline éclairs as well as mango and star anise crème brulée. The Premium Edition is available at THB 1,400++ per set for 2 persons and served with high-end Thai loose-leaf tea blends from Monsoon or coffee.
