While Japanese families will enjoy their picnics under the cherry blossoms next month, the pastry chefs at Up & Above Bar of The Okura Prestige Bangkok create their very own picnics with a special Sakura Blossom Afternoon Tea.



From April 1 to June 30, families in Bangkok can indulge in savoury delights that include grilled sea scallops and mushroom tartare with balsamic, red tuna Tataki with black peppercorns and Wakame salad duck confit and berry tartlet, and Kani and avocado salad on rye bread. All pair perfectly with a glass of chilled Champagne or Prosecco. 

The selection of sweet treats evokes the fragrant flavours of spring with cherry blossom custard, cream rolls, strawberry shortcake, seasonal Daifuku, Sakura macarons, Sakura chocolate truffle, pickled Sakura scones, and artisan clotted cream, jams and marmalade. The set will be served with a cup of rich illy coffee or freshly brewed premium Saro and Mariage Fr?res teas.

The Sakura Blossom Afternoon Tea will be available from 2 to 5pm and ranges from Bt 1,190-plus inclusive of premium coffee or tea for two persons, Bt1,690-plus with Sake or with two glasses of Prosecco and Bt2,750-plus with two glasses of Champagne.
