The French Kitchen: Green Forest Afternoon Tea Featuring Matcha, Pistachio and Sustainable Seafood

The French Kitchen offers an unforgettable afternoon tea experience with an elegant assortment plate and lavish dessert that highlights a different theme each season.

Green Forest Afternoon Tea(4/16 – 6/30)

Grand Hyatt Tokyo The French Kitchen Green Afternoon Tea 1400

From April, the chefs at The French Kitchen will craft a Green Forest Afternoon Tea with desserts such as shortcake and tarts made with high-quality yet “irregular” shaped fruits as well as made using whole fruit chocolate. The whole fruit chocolate offers a fresh fruity taste and, is made with 40% less sugar and 100% pure cacao fruit, 70% of which is normally discarded as waste. A selection of matcha and pistachio-flavored desserts will be offered along with savory bites incorporating sustainable seafood, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the “Green Fund,” a local NPO dedicated to rebuilding and revitalizing forests.

*Please note that photos are an image and the desserts will be served at the table on individual stands.

    About the Green Fund

    Green feather campaign 640C

    Since 1950, the Green Fund has been promoting the “Green Feather Fundraising” movement, but in 1995, the “Green Donation Law” was enacted, and forest development by volunteers through “green fundraising” was promoted, not only in Japan but also on a global scale. They receive donations from companies, communities, schools and workplaces, and are engaged in various initiatives, including forest development and human resource development in Japan and overseas through volunteers and NPOs.
