Earlier this month, Marco Polo Lingnan Foshan held a charity event with Guangdong Lion Club, a well-known charity organisation based in Guangdong Province, at its hotel lobby during Dragon Boat Festival.
The hotel was honoured by the presence of the Chairman of Guangdong Lion Club and some of its members. The event began with a video introducing the Signature Earl Grape Iced Tea, followed by a live demonstration of the correct way to serve the Earl Grape Iced Tea by the Director of Restaurants, Bars & Events Mr. David Zhou.
Every Earl Grape Iced Tea Drink is delicately and meticulously prepared by our tea master, which contributes to its excellent taste. Cold Earl Grey tea, the base of the beverage, is poured over seedless green grapes and elderflower-infused ice cubes. The green grapes are slightly pressed in order to create a rich taste while several flavours are melded together, completing the thirst-quenching drink hailed by many as the perfect summer refreshment. Every glass of Earl Grape Iced Tea is presented with a freshly baked Lokum or Turkish delight. The sugar-based confection is the perfect accompaniment to the Earl Grape Iced Tea, as it helps to accentuate the various flavours resulting from the beverage.
As an introductory special, the Signature Earl Grape Iced Tea was priced at only RMB10 that day and all revenue generated was donated to Guangdong Lion Club publication fund account as charity. “I am extremely pleased our charity partnership with Marco Polo Lingnan Tiandi Foshan was a success,” said the chairman of Guangdong Lion Club. “It is really meaningful and special to have raised funds for our organisation and I look forward to holding the next charity event at Marco Polo.”
