Looking for a date idea to wow your partner? Look no further than Shangri-La’s exclusive Afternoon Tea in partnership with Cirque du Soleil’s KOOZA. The limited-edition afternoon tea set offers a beautifully curated collection of mysterious delights that are a treat for your eyes and taste buds.
Shangri-La Toronto is a luxurious and iconic hotel nestled in the heart of the city. With its sleek and modern design, the hotel offers a sophisticated and elegant ambiance that captivates guests from the moment they step foot inside. The hotel’s impeccable attention to detail and world-class amenities ensure an unforgettable stay for its discerning guests.
Step into the Shangri-La’s lobby lounge from Thursday to Saturday, where you’ll be greeted with friendly staff, offering you a choice of their wide selection of premium teas (our recommendations: the Shangri-la Signature Blend Black Tea and the BiLuo green tea) and choice of a glass of prosecco or sparkling mocktail.
Partake in the taste of glitz and intrigue with creative pieces like “THE ARIAL ACROBATIC” (beef tartare), “THE WHEEL OF DEATH” (pastry topped with egg and truffle), “The Enigmatic Trickster’s Sweet Mystery Boxes” filled with vibrant, fruity flavors and mousse.
Just when you thought you were done with the beautifully presented tower, you’re presented with the star of the show, the “Silk Ribbon Entremet” strawberry cake. We were thoroughly impressed with the fine silky exterior details of the Entremet cake!
There’s also a roster of talented musicians providing live classical music entertainment while you enjoy this delicious spread that’s almost too pretty to eat.
To wrap it all up, we finished the set with “THE INNOCENT” with raspberry jam and lemon and vanilla Madeleines to cleanse the palette.
Ultimate Cirque du Soleil Escape
To make the date even more memorable, consider getting the Ultimate Cirque du Soleil Escape. KOOZA is an innovative journey viewed through the perspective of The Innocent, an endearing yet naïve clown looking for his place in the world.
