Rihga Royal Hotel Kyoto will hold “Strawberry Fair 2023 – Sweets Trip x Oita Berryts”, offering afternoon tea sets and sweets themed on local brand strawberries. The period is from January 4 (Wed) to April 30 (Sun), 2023.
Afternoon Tea & Dessert of “Rare Strawberry Variety”
The “Strawberry Fair 2023 – Sweets Trip x Oita Prefecture Berryts” is a “strawberry-filled” sweets fair that uses an abundance of local brand strawberries. The strawberries used in the event are the rare “Oita Berries,” which are only distributed in Kyoto in Honshu.
The sponge is finished in white to highlight the “bright, dark red” color of the berries. In addition, the strawberries other than the main ones, which are visible, are hidden so that customers can “look for strawberries” as they eat. The lineup includes afternoon tea sets, parfaits, and cakes.
Berry Meats Afternoon Tea” to be enjoyed in “checkered” stacked boxes
The popular “stacked box” afternoon tea set has been updated with new tableware featuring a “checkered pattern” and strawberry design, replacing the traditional bamboo stacked box, in conjunction with the Berry’s collaboration. The highlight of the set is the third tier, filled to the brim with Berry’s tiramisu. The balance of the mascarpone cheese cream and sponge soaked in Berryts syrup can be tasted.
The regular <Two-Tiered Stack> is filled with seven savory items on the first tier and strawberry cream puffs and apple mousse on the second tier. It also includes one fresh berries. The set also includes warm “Strawberry Zenzai”. It is also served with vanilla ice cream, so you can enjoy the sweet and sour taste of strawberries with sweet red bean paste and vanilla.
Shortcake with a distinctive red color of berryts
Two desserts were offered: a cake and a parfait. The Berryts shortcake “Mont Rouge,” made with glass, has a white sponge to show off the Berryts’ bright red color. The cake crumb is also a key feature of the cake, with a shredded cake crumb that has a hollowness texture on the surface.
Berryts shortcake “Mon Rouge” 1,800 yen for a single item / 2,000 yen with a drink
Parfait with a cross between sweets and strawberries
The most appealing feature of the “Choucré Blanc” with its impactful appearance is that you can enjoy various combinations of sweets x Berryts in a single parfait. The combination of millefeuille and Berryts, chocolate parfait and Berryts, and many other combinations are possible because Berryts has a good balance of sweetness and sourness.
Berryts’ parfait “Choucré Blanc” 2,200 yen (single item) / 2,400 yen with drink
