The following course is the Scallop bathed in Kumquat Lemongrass Sauce, a vibrant duet perfectly enhanced by Liu Xiang Jian Shui Xian Tea from Being & Tea’s finest collection. The menu reaches its peak with the Roasted Duck adorned with Five-Spice Hibiscus Strawberry and Plum Compote, accompanied by Duck Wonton, designed to be experienced with Wu Yuan Jian Rou Gui Tea, offering a sensory revelation.

The elegant gastronomic journey concludes with a dessert of Poached Meringue topped with Aged Pu’erh Da Hong Pao Gelato and Caviar, followed by a final sweet array of Mignardises.
