Milk Magazine 訪問 DK Cuppa Tea: 希望透過 開拓飲食領域,令更多人接觸並嘗試了解香薰 ~ DK Aromatherapy 總監 Kat Lai

香薰治療是一門高深學問,涉及大量專業知識,但其神奇療效大抵對於外行人來說,就如塔羅占卜,只是「信則有不信則無夢」的術士之說,大多抱住觀望態度,點到即止。DK Aromatherapy於中環及銅鑼灣有兩間分店,前者提供香薰按摩治療,後者主打香薰產品DIY興趣班。至於為何將看似風馬牛不相及的餐飲元素融入其中,是源於店主Kat從事與香薰相關工作也有20年經驗,發現對香薰有興趣的早已一戰其中一份子,不感興趣的話,再多的Workshops與香薰治療課程也收不到預期效果。抱着「對香薰冇興趣,也至少會坐低飲杯嘢」的期望,Kat相信DK Cuppa Tea開辟了讓我引來接觸香薰的一個新途徑。短短30分鐘的訪問,他深入淺出地向我解釋了有關香薰的一對基本概念,如香薰油的不同使用方法,如何區分天然香薰油與人數香精、兩者功效上有何不同、易容短短三分鐘時間分享了過百種精油的三種基本分類,及如何看他們的基本功能選擇適合自己的一款。那香薰與飲食有何共通之處?其實飲食也是治療的一種,要用眼欣賞、用嗅覺探索、用美國品嚐、也要用心感受、因此DK Cuppa Tea以此概念,推出了「五感享受芳香玫瑰下午茶」,滿足不同感官需要。三層式的點心架上,同樣放上各樣精緻的甜品與小食,但比坊間的英式下午茶,就多了一還是用玫瑰精華的環節,確保點餐的人士是享受被玫瑰簇擁的夢幻感覺。店內裝修執並未刻意加入過多設計,一切以舒適為主,個人尤其喜歡樓睇下隱蔽角落,那片綠草與花飾佈置,令人精神放鬆;地板亦舖上柔軟地氈,可席地而座,與朋友暢談一天想必是人生樂事。

1.溫馨小角落
DK Cuppa Tea 整家店的氣氛浪漫寧靜,予人身心放鬆的感覺,暫時遠離繁囂。店面積不算大,只放了不到十張餐枱,其中一面更放上過百款香薰精油,可供售賣。在門外經過,隨時會唔以為是香薰精油小店。

2-3.極致五咁享受方向玫瑰英式下午茶空,每位$298/兩位起
三層式的下午茶有意式火腿,芝士、橄欖及分子黑松露香草醋珠開始,再配以芝士和薰衣草英式鬆餅,佐以法國純天然玫瑰果醬及奶油。第二層有法國天然玫瑰精華製成的意大利芝士蛋糕及杯子蛋糕;頂層即有有機玫瑰純露製成的北海道3.6牛乳布甸,建議最先享用,不易放得太久,最後以玫瑰花瓣點綴的石板街朱古力作結。

4.任食雪糕
下午茶最後會議自家製雪糕作結,只要坐在每位君點選這一款玫瑰下午茶,就可飲食三款口味的雪糕!包括柚子、豆腐和薑味,客人亦可以個人喜好配搭不同果仁。正在雪糕的容器跟件心事,特別設計有助保溫,賣相也更吸引。

5.自製香水
下午茶包括在店內使用玫瑰精華「香水、花水及香薰油」,但不可帶走。如喜歡香味的話可考慮另加$100參與迷你香水工作坊,按個人喜好製作出一支獨一無二的十毫升香水帶回家,也增長基本的香薰知識。

6.雲雨香茶 單叫$98
全份下午茶最Fancy的亮點可為這一杯簡單而隆重的雲雨香茶,同樣是店主的主意,將自家製的有機棉花糖放在熱茶上,升起的蒸氣慢慢將棉花糖溶化,就營造出下雨般的效果,在陰天日子裏享用,更有詩意!除玫瑰花以外,顧客亦可選檸檬薄荷或伯爵茶薰衣草兩款花草茶。
