Take Time to Smell the Flowers at Conrad Centennial Singapore’s “Language of Flowers” New Afternoon Tea Experience


Tea connoisseurs may now look forward to a floral-themed symphony as they partake in the inventive ritual of afternoon tea at the lobby lounge of Conrad Centennial Singapore.

Conrad Centennial Singapore’s luxurious Lobby Lounge in Singapore is bringing back its famed “Language of Flowers” Afternoon Tea series with a new instalment. From 1 May 2024 to 31 July 2024, this elegant afternoon tea event will take visitors on a sensory adventure into the magical realm of flowers during a private afternoon rendezvous.

Savory pastries perfectly paired with tea.

Executive Pastry Chef Richard Chew and his team have painstakingly crafted a cuisine that continues to honour the spirit of floral language, drawing on the long history of floriography. Indulge in a delightful smorgasbord of sweet and savoury treats that will take your taste buds on a whimsical tour of a seasonal flower garden.

The fragrant scents of Chrysanthemum Rise, a delightful combination of chrysanthemum tea, cherry blossom syrup, and calamansi juice, beckon guests to an elevated tea experience as they take a seat.

An Afternoon Tea Like No Other

Beginning with the Sakura, a serving of sakura mousse accompanied by raspberry jam, red velvet sponge, almond sable, and honeycomb, guests are treated to tastes of delicious sweetness. The sakura blossom, a hallmark of the spring season and a word that may indicate both smile and laughter, is the ideal flower to use as a tea party starter. Osmanthus, a flower frequently hailed as a sign of love and passion in the Far East, has a pleasant perfume and a peculiar flavour that you will like. The osmanthus jelly, Joconde sponge, and sable dough are a lovely complement to the similarly fragrant osmanthus cream.

Make your afternoon a special treat.

There is a delectable assortment of savoury treats served for the afternoon tea as well. Crab rillette with celeriac, crème fraîche, ikura and coriander cress on brioche is the delectable Yellow Daisy, the joyful flower, that guests can enjoy. The Victorians used the word “alyssum” to describe flowers as “worth beyond beauty”, and this meaning is carried over into the Alyssum, a dish of smoked salmon, cucumber, cream cheese, cranberries, and trout caviar served on hazelnut bread.

Have tea like how the Royals do.

Homemade raisin and traditional scones topped with clotted cream and wild strawberry jam round out the experience.

On weekdays, the “Language of Flowers” Afternoon Tea costs S$50++ per person, and on weekends and public holidays, it goes up to S$52++ per person. It comes with two hours of free-flowing TWG Tea and Bacha coffee and you can add Lillet Rosé Tonic for $10++ per glass or two hours of unlimited Prosecco for S$28++. There are two daily seatings for the afternoon tea: one from 1pm to 3pm and another from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.
