Tea for Two

An all new afternoon tea experience awaits at Capella Singapore

Singapore, 18 June 2013 – In densely populated Singapore it is often hard to find space away from the madding crowds in the city. Inspired by its rich colonial heritage set within a tropical Asian paradise, Capella Singapore offers guests the opportunity to disconnect from the daily distractions with an intimate weekend afternoon tea in its fine dining Chinese restaurant, Cassia.

 Starting 15 June 2013, Cassia will be serving an oriental Dim Sum Tea Set which highlights a variety of traditional delights including both sweet and savoury items. Guests can look forward to Cassia’s signature Steamed Barbecued US Kurobuta Pork Bun with Black Truffle; Steamed Siew Mai topped with Abalone; Deep-fried Taro Box with Chicken, Prawn, Scallop, Mushrooms in White Sauce and Homemade Cream of Avocado, just to name a few.

 The Dim Sum Tea Set will also be served with a choice of Chinese Floral Tea, Green Tea or traditional Pu’er Tea.

 Staying true to Capella Singapore’s colonial past as the Royal Artillery Officers’ Mess, Cassia will also be serving a quintessentially British Colonial Afternoon Tea.  The Colonial Afternoon Tea offers a similar combination of sweet and savoury bites with items such as Salmon Burrito with Olive oil Caviar; Cream Cheese, Pesto, Fresh Tomato and Cheese Lavosh; Cranberry Scone; Lemon Tart Meringue and a Chocolate Pastry Cream Éclair among many others.

 The Colonial Afternoon Tea is served with a choice of fragrant White Tea, Green Tea or Black Tea. The Colonial Afternoon Tea is also available at The Knolls from Monday to Friday.

 Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Capella Singapore’s Sentosa location is an accessible escape that everyone deserves. Whether it is on a laid-back quiet afternoon of catching up with friends, a long overdue family gathering or a business meeting, Capella Singapore is an ideal place to take pleasure in the delight of enjoying a session of afternoon tea.


 Dim Sum Afternoon Tea is priced at S$39.90++, available on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays at Cassia from 3:00pm to 5:00pm

 Colonial Afternoon Tea is priced at S$39.90++, available on Monday to Friday at The Knolls and Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays at Cassia from 3:00pm to 5:00pm
