Especially true for the unattached among us out there, perhaps the thing that one looks forward to the most during the excitement surrounding the Lunar New Year festivities is Chap Goh Mei?
And why not, since Chap Goh Mei, set to happen on the 15th night of Lunar New Year, is often considered the Chinese equivalent of Valentine’s Day, especially so in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan!
Thus, with all this in mind, how about making plans for a rather delightful teatime affair featuring the Caorunn Peranakan Affair Teas set, perhaps with that special someone, at the Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur in the heart of Chinatown in KL for some ‘let’s get to know each other’ chit chat with a difference?
Available from February 1st to 15th, the Caorunn Peranakan Affair tea set can be enjoyed at either Lady Yi’s Tea House or Jann KL within the hotel. What’s more, the special set is served on one-of-a-kind Peranakan porcelain, lovingly handpicked by one Yuin Yi – a bit of a porcelain expert whom the tea house is named after, to honour the deep history of Straits Chinese homeware.
And yes, you and your partner may then look forward to Indulging in tasty treats like chilli prawn pie tee, braised tamarind duck in Chinese pancake and lightly charred otak otak sandwich while sipping on Lady Yi’s Signature 11 Treasures Tea and enjoying each other’s company…
There’s also plenty in the name of sweet treats, courtesy of desserts inspired by Peranakan classics such as onde-onde, pulut hitam and kuih bahulu, among many others…
But best of all, this is actually also a collaboration between Caorunn Gin and Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown is in partnership with GinRumMe, the biggest gin and rum festival in Malaysia. Hence, the Caorunn gin tea set promotion includes all the above-mentioned offerings, plus three cocktails from Jann KL – the Caorunn G&T Signature Serve, Caorunn Raspberry & Sonic, and Tea & Gin with tea of your choice. This kind of saves you two the trouble of adjourning to a bar for drink now, doesn’t it?
Of course, Caorunn gin is handcrafted in small batches at Balmenach Distillery in the Scottish Highlands, with a unique blend of handpicked Celtic botanicals and classic gin botanicals distilled in the world’s only working Copper Berry Chamber to extract maximum flavour. Just imagine how tasty the cocktails will be, eh?
