In the land of espresso and cappuccino, tea may seem like a poor relation, but this season there is a new and sophisticated ritual focusing on this traditional beverage. The Tea Moment at Park Hyatt Milano hotel features teas by Dammann Frères, the oldest French tea company, now part of the Illy group famous for its coffee. In the Cupola, the beautiful travertine-lined lobby, guests and visitors can enjoy a tea menu accompanied by a series of delectable culinary pleasures created by chef Andrea Aprea.
Damman Frères was the first company to introduce tea to France in 1692, in the days of King Louis XIV. The blends on the menu include English Breakfast, Jasmin, Bergamot, Darjeeling, Green Gunpowder, White and many others. For a touch of indulgence, accompany your tea with a goblet of Ruinart R champagne.
The Tea Moment at Park Hyatt Milan is available from 20 November 2013, for the entire 2013-2014 winter season.
