Above & Beyond x Loom Loop

Each guest who are having an Afternoon Tea will walk away with an exclusive gift from Loom Loop, who have created a card holder exclusively for Above & Beyond that features a bold forest green and navy blue design, mirroring the theme of the latest collection, which pays homage to an ancient Chinese legend. The legend tells a love story about a cowherd and a fairy, their love wasn’t allowed so they were banished to either sides of the Silver River and once a year a group of magpies would form a bridge allowing the lovers to reconnect, hence the running magpie motif in the latest collection.

Above & Beyond X Loom Loop Afternoon Tea Set is available every weekend from 10 June 2017 until 30 July 2017 and priced at HKD438 + 10% for 2 persons with tea and freshly brewed coffee

Above & Beyond is located at 28/F, Hotel ICON, 17 Science Museum Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, Kowloon, Hong Kong
