Keep calm and carry on with this luxurious, healing high-tea set

You can’t stay cooped up at home forever. Whether you’re heading out for dinner or a spot of grocery shopping (not hoarding, please), it’s important to pay mind to proper social health etiquette, more so than ever.

Knowing this, InterContinental Singapore has partnered with luxury beauty brand Chantecaille to offer a new afternoon tea experience that makes heading out worthwhile (and safe). The new Classic Afternoon Tea: Chantecaille Rose de Ma ($88 for two; $118 inclusive of two flutes of Champagne) will be made available at the hotel’s spacious lobby lounge, and it’s one place that’s really tight with their social distancing and sanitisation measures.

Highlights from the three-tier set include a strawberry, orange blossom mousse tart topped with delicate floral chocolate; sakura mousse with peach jelly; and a delightful dome-shaped rose tea, cardamom cremeux, vanilla sponge on lemon shortbread.

Accompanying the charming selection of sweets are savory treats. Find a prawn mousse pita with pomegranate; salmon thyme quiche and feta cheese cranberry roll, peach rose jam with dried fruits and nuts. There’s also a dessert station where you can get unlimited servings of ice cream, baked crumble and bread pudding.

Each afternoon tea guest will receive a complimentary Chantecaille gift bag too, featuring the brand’s signature skincare range. Each product in their Rose de Mai range is powered by this rare rose that blooms for only three weeks during the month of May in France. Rich in vitamin C, it possesses powerful antioxidant properties, helps calm the complexion, and supremely moisturizes the skin.

So if you’re heading out for a treat, make it one that’s good for you.

The Classic Afternoon Tea: Chantecaille Rose de Ma is available at InterContinental Singapore from Apr 1-Jun 30 (Mon-Thu 2-5pm; Fri-Sun 1-3pm & 3.30-5.30pm). $88 for two, or $118 inclusive of two flutes of Champagne.
