which starts in June.

They've had the standard afternoon tea set with their own blended tea/coffee and all the other 'works' mentioned for some while.

@serrano,gaijintraveller: My eyes popped the first time I saw those prices too. .but then when I had it, was super nice and good to treat yourself to such luxuries once a while. I definitely recommend.

Trying to ape the Ritz in Lo9ndon. Actually you can spend a nice long afternoon, have a few cups of different tea and some sarnies and cakes etc. I think not too bad. Might give it a go - might be a change from getting hammered over an expensive lunch

That is a ridiculous price for tea. It looks as if the jam is served in jam jars. Don't they make their own in their kitchens and serve it in dishes, which should be silver at that price?

13% service charge! So, 9,040 yen for some tea and desserts. Cripes...
