Taking inspiration from the beauty brand's Re-Nutriv Ultimate Diamond line, the set features delicacies infused with black truffle – often known as edible black diamonds. Highlights include mini lobster sandwiches with black truffle mayonnaise and glittering chocolate truffles. Guests will also receive a Re-Nutriv face or eye massage service voucher with every tea set, redeemable at any Estée Lauder boutique in town. $218 per person (Daily 3pm-5.30pm). Until Sep 31.
