The color of 2022 is mint green, but it has always been a nice color to have around during hot weather for its psychological cooling effect. Moreover, mint flavors, especially combined with chocolate, have been getting more popular in Japan in recent years, even spawning a buzzword チョコミン党 (chokomintō, literally "chocolate mint party") to describe those who love them.
If you find yourself in the Venn Diagram of people who live in the Tokyo area, love mint green color, mint and chocolate flavors, pastel colors, sweets, all things cute and romantic, afternoon tea parties and Alice and Wonderland, you're in luck!
Hilton Tokyo is having an "Alice's Peppermint Tea Party," a summer lunch and sweets buffet inspired by the story of "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll, from Friday, May 27th to Wednesday, August 31st, at the hotel's first floor Marble Lounge.
In a space decorated in refreshing mint green colors, you can enjoy not only chocolate mint sweets by Executive Pastry Chef Osamu Harita, but also 20 kinds of sweets using fruits like white peaches, muscat grapes, and melons, not one or two but three chocolate fountains including the "Mega Mint" fountain, and 10 kinds of savory items including roast beef, quiche, and of course, sandwiches. You'll also have a choice of 15 kinds of drinks including Ronnefeldt tea, a high-end German tea brand. The price will be 5,000 JPY per person (5,800 JPY on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays) and the event will be held from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm (2:30 pm to 5:30 pm on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays).
