Afternoon Tea at Connect Lounge, Marco Polo Hotel, Manila
Connect Lounge, located at the 24th floor lobby of the Marco Polo Ortigas Manila features an afternoon tea service that shouldn't be missed.
The sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere of the lounge is the perfect venue to appreciate the expansive view of the Sierra Madre mountains while sipping on their wide selection of perfectly crafted coffee drinks and tea selection from German tea-makers Althaus. Choices of delectable treats include the traditional tea set or the Asian-inspired version which aside from classic scones, jam, and clotted cream features some great savory finger foods and dimsum delights. They include two of everything so you and your date get one of each treat. Along with all these comes Marco Polo's usual brand of excellent service which all-in-all makes for a wonderful afternoon affair.
