Enjoy the art of fine tea, indulgent sweet treats and warm conversation
in one of Portugal’s most historic settings
Sintra – February, 2017 – In today’s frenetic, hyper-connected world there is nothing more luxuriously indulgent than taking precious time to enjoy great conversation with friends or family over Afternoon Tea, ideally served with creamy scones, delicate sandwiches and perhaps even a glass of Champagne.
And there is nowhere better to savour this unforgettable experience than at Penha Longa Resort in Portugal—a centuries-old sanctuary of calm and tranquility set in 220 hectares of Sintra Mountains’ Natural Park.
“Afternoon Tea at Penha Longa is the perfect way to spend a highly civilised afternoon. It not only brings friends and family together but also celebrates the warmth of conversation and laughter,” says the resort’s Director of Food & Beverage Jason Silva.
At Penha Longa the quintessential experience of Afternoon Tea has been refined to a high art and is now available every day in the resort’s B-Lounge. Two delicious options are served daily from 3.30pm to 6.00pm—the Penha Longa Classic and the Penha Longa Signature.
With the Classic, Afternoon Tea connoisseurs can enjoy scones, butter and compotes, smoked salmon and cream cheese finger sandwiches, chocolate financiers, red berry tart and, of course, the finest teas. The Signature, includes profiteroles, raspberry pave, chocolate financiers, grilled vegetables and pesto focaccia as well as smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches, scones, tarts, a range of specialist teas and a sparkling glass of Champagne.
“Sitting down to enjoy a refreshing cup of tea—perhaps with indulgent cake or two—in the historic setting of our hotel overlooking the natural wonder of the Sintra Mountains is unforgettable. We are looking forward to welcoming all those who want to share such a unique experience with their family or friends,” says General Manager David Martinez.
