There’s no denying that Hong Kong loves a great afternoon tea – and now with so many venues offering takeaway tea sets, it’s never been easier to get your scone on.
We’ve rounded up 10 of the best takeaway afternoon teas currently available in Hong Kong… so all you need to do is get the tea-cups, and dig in.
Four Seasons Hong Kong
Four Seasons might just be home to our favourite scones in Hong Kong – and with their afternoon tea often booked out weeks in advance, the takeaway set is a superb option for getting that all-important scone fix.
In addition to their much-loved scones, their new autumn afternoon tea set includes indulgent sweet treats like red velvet cake and uber-adorable teapot-shaped cassis and violet macarons, alongside equally delicious savouries like gin-cured salmon tartare with caviar, and a foie gras mousse and quince jam napoleon.

Each set also includes one cute Conrad 30th Anniversary Teddy Bear, for you and your teatime companion to fight over later.

Their classic set comprises a variety of finger sandwiches – flavours include coronation chicken, cucumber with mint cream, and Norfolk-cured ham and mustard – alongside a daily selection of pastries and cakes. Of course, no good afternoon tea is complete without scones, and Fortnum’s serves theirs with a trio of their signature preserves: strawberry, raspberry and lemon curd.
