Tea and style, in a perfect blend. Elegant afternoon tea at The Writers Bar in Raffles Makati is elevated with an elegant touch from Italian style icon Furla for a unique experience...

High Tea and high fashion come together in a luxurious weave as The Writers Bar in Raffles Makati brews yet another afternoon tea concept threaded by luxurious Italian style for a memorable and seamless experience. In an exclusive event, guests were treated to the savory and sweet decadent creations of Executive Chef Bela Rieck for afternoon tea as well as a sneak peek at the 2022 Autumn/Winter Collection of Furla at The Writers Bar.  Read on for a unique preview of afternoon tea and Italian style with #FURLAAfternoonTea at Raffles Makati...  

The towering structure of Raffles Makati is a familiar sight in the busy Makati commercial and business district, home to a variety of sumptuous dining experiences as well as the afternoon tea tradition... The Writers Bar. Since my very first afternoon tea experience so many years back at The Writers Bar, I've always been impressed with the creative "pocket concepts" behind each themed afternoon tea offering at Raffles Makati (for more on the innovative afternoon tea themes at The Writers Bar, see my previous posts, Afternoon Tea with a New York Twist at Writers Bar featuring designer Kate Spade from 2014, Breakfast at Tiffany's? Make That Afternoon Tea at Tiffany's. At Writers Bar...from 2016 and Tea with a French Accent: The Royal Afternoon Tea Series Featuring Marie Antoinette at Writers Bar from 2017). The newest afternoon tea offering is a continuing series in a long tradition of unique experiences at Raffles Makati, this time with a lavish Italian flair.

Taking its cue from previous editions of afternoon tea themes, the #FURLAFternoonTea at The Writers Bar is yet another imaginative concept combining art, style, fashion and tea in one harmonious fusion for a unique afternoon tea experience (for more on Afternoon Tea at The Writers Bar, see my earlier posts, Show Me The Honey: The Honeyholic Afternoon Tea for Two At The Writers Bar in Raffles Makati Hotel from a few months back and Doing It Right: Tea Etiquette at The Writers Bar's Queen Victoria Royal Afternoon Tea from 2017).
