Get A Taste Of Provence At Raffles Makati’s Afternoon Tea With L’Occitane


Take a break from the bustling city of Metro Manila by indulging yourself to afternoon tea inspired by the beauty of Provence.

Beauty and wellness brand L’Occitane has always provided us with products made from the freshest, most natural ingredients from the south of France and the Mediterranean. So it should come as no surprise that Raffles Makati got in touch with the brand for a one-of-a-kind collaboration, launching their fourth themed afternoon tea series at Writers Bar.

Inspired by the natural beauty of Provence, the hotel’s special afternoon tea features a delicious medley of savory and sweet treats. There is the Pissaladiere with Kalamata olives, fresh anchovies on Focaccia bread, mini brioche sandwich with chicken, pine nuts, roasted tomato, basil, a Nicoise salad in a crunchy cup, and goat cheese with honey, lavender and grapes on country bread. For those of you who have a sweet tooth, you will be delighted to find pastries such as peach mirliton, calisson of orange and lemon confit, pistachio religieuse, lavender macaron, white chocolate mousse tartlet with black currant cremeux and finally, their honey, lemon and almond madeleines. Of course, a proper afternoon tea isn’t complete with freshly baked scones—theirs is baked with dried apricots and almonds and accompanied by traditional clotted cream, strawberry preserves and lemon curd—and a selection of fine teas.

Raffles Makati’s themed afternoon tea with L’Occitane is available from 2:30 – 5:30 PM daily starting July 16 to September 30 at Php 1,500 for two.

Raffles Makati is located at 1 Raffles Drive, Makati Ave, Makati, 1224. For more information about their afternoon tea with L’Occitane, call their Restaurant Reservations at 795 1840 or email [email protected].
