There’s a new princess in town! (Drum roll please…) Meet Princess Jellaena Clare, protector of the Peppa Pig clan, first toddler in attendance at Taipa central park, Duchess of dim sums, Countess of cakes and the Princess of tea parties. This brave little girl scoured the streets (erm.. hotels) to sample the tastiest treats of the best afternoon tea sets in Macau.
Four Seasons Macao
The elegant Windows Restaurant is located at Four Seasons Macao. They are offering a Kid’s afternoon tea set that’s super cute and colorful. Clare immediately smiled and gasped with delight upon seeing the charming crockery inspired by a royal theme. The animated designs on top of each treat were truly appetizing and enticing to look at. The staff members were warm and friendly. They gave each of the little diners a stuffed toy, crayons, and other coloring materials. Clare received a red reindeer whom she totally adores. The kid’s tea set is priced at MOP $148 each.

The Lobby Lounge at Mandarin Oriental offers a unique Asian twist on their wonderful afternoon tea set. The glutinous ball with lotus paste and egg yolk paired with tea was our favorite. It’s not as uppity as the other locations but I did get a bit of scare with Clare and the furniture around us. We could have washed the dishes at the hotel for weeks if she broke the lined up vase at the lobby lounge. Clare also received a coloring set and some crayons to while away the time in between the scrumptious delicacies. The afternoon tea set is available at MOP $398 for two persons between 2pm to 5:30pm.

The St. Regis Bar features a modern and stylish space. We dined in the intimate surroundings of The Vault which was great because Clare kept running all over the place pretending to be a princess. She found the classic tea set truly impressive. For the mommies, you’d be happy to know that they have a wellness tea selection including Buckwheat and Bamboo Tea while the fruit tea selection includes strawberry dreams, summer peach, merry berry, and apple twist. The classic afternoon tea set is priced at MOP $348 for two.

Each of our outings was an exciting day. It was a meaningful time for me and Clare to bond and explore Macau. We took the bus to each of the locations by the way which proves how accessible it is to travel around the city. What’s more meaningful to me is the realization that the true tradition of Afternoon Tea that has been passed on from each generation is taking the time to spend with your loved ones. As parents, we must ensure that our children feel loved by our presence and that we value them by allotting a specific time to truly understand their fears and hopes alike.
They say that your first born child will always be special. It’s the first time for everything as a parent and you allow yourself the tolerance to commit mistakes and learn every small step by trial and error. It’s safe to say that the next time we go out for an afternoon tea, we are not sitting near any breakable furniture ever again!
