Waldorf Astoria Beijing, in collaboration with Italian creative firm SELETTI, now hosts a galaxy- and Mars-themed afternoon tea through Nov. 22.
The afternoon tea experience includes 3-D projections besides each table setting, with projections centered around space travel and high-tech exploration. The afternoon tea menu gets a space-age touch as well. Guests enjoy crispy fish skin craters with black garlic puree and caviar; space grain-fed wagyu beef pho spring rolls; crystalline melon with feta cheese and black caviar; and Apollo 16 wagyu katsu sandwiches on milk bread. Desserts include nebula mini doughnuts, meteorite crystal rock lychee mousse and R3-D3 Milky Way chocolate cake. The menu was inspired by the items Apollo 16 astronauts enjoyed during their mission, as well as molecular gastronomy.
3-D projections change according to drink temperatures at a place setting. For example, if the 3-D projector senses a hot drink, it might display a Mars landscape; if the drink is chilled, it might display a colder planet in orbit.
“I am extremely excited with the innovative attempt for Into Deep Space 3D Projection Afternoon Tea experience. Our Waldorf service extends beyond offering a luxurious and sophisticated service, we also provide guests an unforgettable and tasteful experience in visual and tactile aspects. This time we promised to provide guests an interactive 3D projection experience second to none,” said Brian Tong, general manager, Waldorf Astoria Beijing.
