For February, our group of friends gathered at the Origami Lounge on the 3rd floor of the Capitol Hotel Tokyu Tokyo for a strawberry-themed afternoon tea session.
The lounge was quite lovely. The only complaint we had was that our party was sizable, 8 people, and they put us right smack in the middle of room which in itself wasn't the problem. The problem was the sunny afternoon, and being in the middle of the room means no shade and we had the sun in our eyes the whole time. It was so bright and so hot at one point that we all started putting on hats and sunglasses, kind of ridiculous. So if you go in a big party, be sure to ask for a table in the shade.
But I'll be fair and give them credit for being accommodating. One of our friends don't eat seafood of any kind, and another was vegetarian. The chef came out and made sure they both were happy with their altered tea sets.
As you can see, the tea set is Japanese fusion and came in a 2-tiered bento box wrapped in colorful satin furoshiki. Everyone got a different color. Mine was blue.
Here's the savories tray.
And the sweets tray. Overall, save for the blasting sun we had a great time chatting and snacking away the afternoon. It was great!
