Tranquili-Tea Unveiled: A Serene Spring Affair at Onyx Bar & Lounge, Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North
As spring unfolds its vibrant canvas, Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North welcomes the season with Tranquili-Tea, a delightful tea experience at the picturesque Onyx Bar & Lounge. Launching on March 1 and continuing until April 30, 2024, this seasonal tea affair promises a perfect blend of relaxation and celebration against the backdrop of sweeping desert and Valley views.
Teatime, according to Director of Food and Beverage, Rita Vale, is not just a break but an opportunity for refined relaxation. Guests can bask in the abundant Scottsdale spring sunshine, streaming through the floor-to-ceiling windows at Onyx, while indulging in a custom tea menu and specialty sips. For more details, comprehensive information can be found on the company website.
The menu unfolds with a tempting array of tea sandwiches, each a culinary masterpiece. Options include smoked salmon with herb Boursin spread, cucumber, dill, and brown bread; Arizona heirloom tomatoes with homemade whipped ricotta, grilled peaches, dehydrated strawberry, and pomegranate gastrique; prosciutto fig with jamon Serrano, black mission fig, and pear; southwest egg salad and bibb lettuce on a mini brioche bun; and a classic cucumber sandwich with whipped butter and fennel pollen. Complementing these savory delights are scones, including buttermilk and apricot, served with lemon curd, clotted cream, and housemade orange marmalade.
The pièce de résistance of Tranquili-Tea lies in the artistry of Executive Pastry Chef Yudith Bustos, who presents an exquisite selection of sweet teatime treats. The Beehive, combining coconut mousse and honey cake with passionfruit caviar, steals the show. The Onyx, a creation of chocolate mousse, salted caramel, and hazelnut crunch, tantalizes the taste buds. The Cactus brings the flavors of the southwest with prickly pear and cheesecake mousse, while The Sunset features citrus cream, seasonal fruit, and meringue.
Accompanying the culinary delights are a variety of RISHI teas, including classics like Earl Grey and English Breakfast, as well as unique blends like Chamomile, Jade Cloud, Artemesia Ginger, and Chilean Cranberry Citrus.
Tranquili-Tea offers one seating daily from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, and reservations are a must. The experience is priced at USD 80 for two adults, with an option to elevate it for USD 125 by adding bottomless sparkling sips, featuring Mimosas, Bellinis, Aperol Spritzes, and sparkling wine. Don't miss out on this enchanting rendezvous with tranquility and taste at Onyx Bar & Lounge this spring.
