Travel through food and explore Fukuoka with a Yamecha-themed afternoon tea at The Lounge.
This May, the Swissôtel Nankai Osaka collaborates with the Fukuoka Prefecture and JA Fukuoka City Agricultural Cooperative, bringing the famed Yamecha for the month’s afternoon tea theme at The Lounge.
The partnership is in line with the hotel’s food and beverage theme in 2021, allowing diners to travel to different places through food. The hotel aspires to showcase an ALLSAFE culinary journey, addressing the longing for travel given the current situation – through an exploratory approach without the need for physical travel.
The afternoon tea in May focuses on one of Fukuoka’s most recognized produced, Yamecha. Dating back to 1423, the Yame tea was introduced by Japanese Buddhist monk Master Shuzui, with a tea production method produced in Yame city, on the island of Kyushu in Southern Japan. This type of tea is differentiated from others with its full and rich flavour, along with some bitterness and astringency. Produced following the highest standards and care from cultivation in tea fields to processing in factories, the tea is recognised for its premium quality – further exemplified after winning the top price at Japan’s National Tea Fair.
FUKUOKA’S YAMECHA AFTERNOON TEA at The Lounge features sweet and savoury delights crafted by the hotels’ culinary artisans, to include:
Sweets: Yuzu Yamecha milk roll cake | Yamecha pudding | Black sesame and Yamecha ganache | Yamecha and mascarpone mousse | Yamecha and nut tart | Yamecha MONAKA | Yamecha petit fours
Savoury: Crab and Cashewnuts Cocktail | Raw Ham and Pea Tendrils | Grilled Zucchini and Carrot Cheese | Champignon and Bacon Quiche
