It was a tale of Tea. And Cocktails.
Tea Tails, if you like.
The Ronnefeldt Cocktail Afternoon was held on Saturday, 11th October 2014 at The Smoke House, Majestic Hotel KL.
Tea-infused cocktails and canapés delighted guests, who were totally intrigued by the unique concoctions prepared by the hotel’s resident bartender, Johnnie the Barman.
Among the Ronnefeldt inspired cocktails that were served during the event were the Conservatory Punch, Straits of Tea and Silver Tea Cobbler. There was also a selection of mocktails, namely the Jasmine Passion and Halcyon Days, for guests who preferred an invigorating non-alcoholic beverage.
Executive Chef Mohamad Zaidi and his culinary team perfectly complemented the stimulating beverage selection by preparing tea-infused canapés such as King Crab Meat Croquette, Peking Duck Pancake with Sweet Bean Vinaigrette, Ronnefeldt Orange Flower Tea Gravlax and Ronnefeldt Crème Brûlée.
Guests were also kept engaged in a talk on Ronnefeldt Tea and the teatails presented by Andreas Aufmkolk, Regional Director of Ronnefeldt Asia Pacific.
Jeffrey Mong, general manager of The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur told us that the hotel had been serving Ronnefeldt tea since the opening of the hotel. The Smoke House was also the perfect venue for an event of this nature as the place served some of the best cocktails in town.

Definitely one of the more interesting cocktail sessions we’ve been to this year. We’ll probably never look at gourmet tea, quite the same again!Follow me on Instagram : @agentcikay
