Andaz Seoul Gangnam, a lifestyle hotel by Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, has launched the “Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea Set,” featuring a combination of winter desserts, finger foods and savories in addition to coffee or tea.

The afternoon tea set is available at Jogakbo Bites and Wine bar until the end of February next year from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily, offering a colorful dessert arrangement with scenes from Christmas and the end of the year. Last orders are at 4 p.m.

The menu items are served in a box reminiscent of a Christmas present. The meal items are stacked on top of dry ice at the base of the box to add an impression of snow and mist.

The sweet menu items are composed of seven desserts, including a rose chocolate mousse, macarons and cookies.

Savory items include raspberry and cheese scones that are crispy on the outside but moist on the inside; a bacon and spinach mini quiche made with provolone cheese and parsley; and a honey baked ham and cheese sandwich with Gruyere cheese.

The menu can be enjoyed with unlimited tea or coffee.
