Hi-tea, Every afternoon at Hotel Yak and Yeti
Each day has its own signature
It’s not just brunch, lunch and dinner any more even your tea
is being served with a grand style. Hotel Yak and Yeti has come up with a special afternoon event
called “Hi-Tea” at the Piano Lounge. It is thus an old and hallowed British
tradition brought to life at the multi-star hotel. “This daytime event has been started at the insistence of
guests who often gather at the Lounge for meetings and other casual
get-togethers,” reveals Surendra Thakuri, sales and communication manager of the
hotel. So, each day, from 3 to 5 pm, the lounge is refurbished with
the day’s thematic tea party. According to the day, the laid out and served tea
snacks and munchies differ. Even the flavor of the tea is attuned to the
particular day’s theme.
Such as, while Sundays are ruled by chocolate-based delights
and lemon tea, Mondays are dipped in cheese with the aroma of jasmine tea afloat
in the air. The lounge hosts its guests with the Oriental theme and Tibetan tea
on Tuesdays. And Wednesdays are meant for typical Nepali tidbits and Yarsagumba
tea while Thursdays captivate all with special English muffins and pastries.
During weekends, Saturdays are reserved for tints of South Indian flavors, and
Sundays mark the hosting of Boston Tea Parties. So it’s all yours to choose from on the appointed day!
With the cozy sofas, armchairs and well-lit surroundings, the
after-lunch hours could be perfectly spent in the Piano Lounge. The Hi-Tea also
caters varieties of coffee and iced teas in the flavors of mango, mint, lemon,
black currant and Ceylon Supreme. The price tag of this classy Hi-Tea party
comes to be around a reasonable Rs. 299, exclusive of taxes. In the meantime, Chef Krishna Kazi Basnet advises, “Be sure
to try the Chocolate Choux of Sundays, Vegetable Sushis of Tuesdays, and
Pastries on Thursdays.
