Like love, chocolate is an eternal source of inspiration,

‘Like love, chocolate is an eternal source of inspiration, exciting the noblest emotions.’ Eugene Weiss is the inventor of “high-chocolate”.  He created Weiss as an excellent brand through the art of blending cocoa beans from different highly-reputable cocoa producing regions. The passion of Eugene Weiss has been passed down from generation to generation and 130 years later people still feel the same emotion as at the moment of Weiss chocolate’s first production. Since 1882, Weiss roasters and chocolate-makers have perpetuated their know-how and love for their job to the next few generations. At Weiss, excellence is created through the selection of cocoa beans and raw ingredients, which come from the world’s best regions to guarantee inimitable flavours. Thanks to specialised techniques, Weiss can innovate by variating the blending of cocoa beans to obtain a unique chocolate flavour. Weiss also introduced the roasting of dried fruits to produce intense pralines or to create carefully designed fine aromas and spicy notes.  This collaboration between The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong and WEISS springs from the same pursuit of excellence and the passion for innovation.

The WEISS Chocolate ‘Rubik’s Cube’ Afternoon Tea includes a series of special desserts - assorted chocolate bonbon, citrus and double chocolate panna cotta, Gianduja crunchy chocolate tart, sesame white chocolate coffee sphere and chocolate chips scone with mascarpone cream. The refined  melange of tastes is simply full of surprises. Take a bite, let it melt in your mouth, and feel the flavors gradually explode on your taste buds. As a perfect balance to this amazing chocolate dessert treat, the culinary artists of The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong have also put together an imaginative selection of savory dishes for your enjoyment.
