Winter Palace Tea – This black tea is embellished with notes of strong forest honey and chestnuts.

The Winter Palace Tea (the white pot) has a sweet aftertaste.

Heart of Happiness – A magnificent and enveloping creation of white tea leaves handcrafted into a heart bouquet of amaranth, jasmine and dragon lines.

Heart of Happiness is light in taste.

Roasted Duck

Sliced on the spot and served with sweet plum sauce and hosin sauce. Thin and goes well with the sauce.

Grilled vegetables (in a bowl), Seared Tuna, Smoked salmon on some greens and cheese, Cheese on tomato slice.

The grilled vegetables are soft and well flavoured.

Lamb stew, Fried chicken, Stir-fried vegetables, Steamed Seabass

The lamb is well cooked, while the fried chicken is abit hard. The steamed fish tends to stick to the teeth.

Soft custard like filling in it.
