Introducing The Silverneedle® Collection Afternoon Tea Experience Timeless Tea Trails In The Mekong Region


Tea ceremonies are synonymous with Asian service as the ultimate act of welcome.  Through the SilverNeedle® Collection Afternoon Tea Experience, this timeless tradition comes alive and brings a new era of grace and elegance to the historic destinations of Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Luang Prabang.

SilverNeedle® Collection’s six premium blends of tea are testament to the bonds that afternoon tea has brought together over the centuries, as well as the long voyage that they took to arrive in South East Asia.  Served in the Northern Lanna capital Chiang Mai at 137 Pillars House, on the historic Rattanakosin Island in Bangkok at Riva Surya, and in the former French colonial town of Luang Prabang at Kiridara, the blends chosen reflect the foundation of tea growing in Thailand and Laos, first introduced from China in the 14th century using Formosa Teas. Following an evolution in the tea trades through the first Western contact with the Portuguese, the Europeans and the British gradually took to drinking tea in the 17th century, culminating in the exquisite experience of the afternoon tea. 

Built in scenic locales which convey a tapestry of fabled moments in South East Asian history, the hotels in the exquisite SilverNeedle® Collection offer a menu of unique and authentic experiences which tie them closely to their respective communities.

In launching its Afternoon Tea experience, SilverNeedle® Collection Hotels have crafted menus with a combination of local delicacies and regional teas, to showcase the service that has become a hallmark of excellence throughout the brand.  We extend the graciousness and warmth of diverse Asian cultures to create lasting memories for our guests.  The SilverNeedle® Afternoon Tea is the perfect way to experience one of the many unique and authentic experiences in a most special and desirable location.

The SilverNeedle® Collection Afternoon Tea Experience offers our guests a chance to sample the unique Royal Darjeeling blend from India, the Classic Earl Grey selection from Sri Lanka; the subtlety of Thailand’s Aromatic Lemongrass and Calming Chamomile herbal infusions; and the fragrant Superior Jasmine blend from China. And of course, our finest Signature SilverNeedle® Yin Zhen brew from Fujian Province – the ‘grand dame of white teas’- is a definite must try.

 Gathered for just a few days each spring, more than 4,500 buds are needed to make one pound of this rare tea, making it an emblem of excellent hospitality that inspired the name for SilverNeedle® Hospitality.

The SilverNeedle® Collection Afternoon Tea Experience is available to hotel guests and day visitors of SilverNeedle® Collection Hotels.  Our Afternoon Tea guests can indulge in a three-tier-curate stand filled with freshly prepared savoury sandwiches and pastries paired with sweet desserts and cakes.
