Seabourn is enhancing its Afternoon Tea Service with the addition of luxury tea brand TWG Tea. Established in Singapore in 2008, TWG Tea (The Wellbeing Group) offers over 800 different single-estate, fine harvests and exclusive tea blends from renowned tea estates in every tea-producing region around the globe.
Seabourn’s new Afternoon Tea Service, available from 4–5pm daily in the Observation Bar, features loose-leaf tea selections from TWG Tea such as English Earl Grey, Imperial Lapsang Souchong, and Highlands BOP Ceylon.
They are served on handcrafted china from Bernardaud, the family-owned French porcelain company originally established in Limoges, France in 1863. Each piece that bears the company’s signature brings the grace of simple luxury to everyday life and demonstrates that, after two thousand years, porcelain continues to prove its worth as an exceptional material.
Afternoon Tea will also be accompanied by a set selection of sweet desserts and savoury snacks including gluten-free and vegetarian options, presented on a stylish three-tiered display tray at the guest’s table in the Observation Bar.
Seabourn’s enhanced Afternoon Tea Service is now being offered across the Seabourn fleet, with the TWG brand implementation ongoing and set to be completed in the coming weeks.
Seabourn’s High Tea, a variation on Afternoon Tea, is offered on select afternoons with formal white glove service and live cooking features or themed menu options as accompaniments. Examples of High Tea themes may include The “Viennese” High Tea with apple strudel, The “Parisian” High Tea with Crêpes Suzette, The “Venetian” High Tea with Zabaione, and The “Royal” High Tea with English Trifle, which will typically feature more substantial food items than the Afternoon Tea service. Live piano music also accompanies the High Tea experience.
