Blanc is one of the place Iwant to try for a long long time. They have a sunday brunch that only costs 39 euros per person, including a glass of cava and hot drinks. Unfortunately either was I too broke or unavailable, I was not able to make it on any of the sundays.

Afternoon tea is available everyday from 17:00 to 19:00. All the sandwiches and cakes are on the table which we can help yourself. You may order drinks, and get something to munch on from the table, and paying them at the prices according to the A La Carte afternoon tea menu, or you can get a package, with either tea, Jing teas, or a glass of Cava, and help yourself to whatever you want on the table. I on purposely chosen to come on a Tuesday, because from Turesday to Saturday, there is a pianist playing live music on the beautifully snow white grand piano in the lounge.

As a caffaine addict, not having a package with coffee really was the most disastrous fact about this afternoon tea at Blanc. Being not a huge fan of teas, I order a package with tea, and a capuccino to cheer myself up.

The capuccino was hearty. It came with two petit sponge bites which were lovely. There are bits of almonds inside. They are slight caramelised, chewy on the exterior, buttery and moist inside. Their sizes are perfect for dipping.  The Capuccino was covered with smooth, creamy froth, and the strength was just right to by liking. The milky flavour was not too overwhelming but soothing and tasted naturally sweet which is gorgeous with my sugarless coffee.

For the teas, there are quite a number of choices. In Blanc, before pucking your teas, the waitresses will bring you all teas available to so you could have a snif of all of them before making up your mind. Not being a huge fan of teas, I am not sure how to judge the Arabian herbal i picked. Though it came elegantly with a ancient style tea pot, and 3 pies of that delicious sponge.

For sandwiches, there were two types availble. One of which is the common option - Jamon Iberico. Although sandwiches were served cold, the baguette used was nice and crunchy. I always love the Pa amb Tomaquet. Not only dies the tomato makes the bread moist than ever, its sweetness balances the saltiness of Jamon. With this perfect match and fresh. Read, it was simple and fulfilling.

According to the menu, the other sandwich available should be with ruccula, olive sauce, dried tomato and cream cheese . However on the table I only found cereal bread with cucumber, carrot and avocado. I love avocado and vegetarian sandwiches, but this one seriously a little dry and bare. The fillings were so insufficient that basically all I could taste was the fresh, grainy cereal bread. The bread was wonderfully fresh, but I would ask for more at places like Blanc.

The first cake I tasted was the Chocolate Texture. The central was this crunchy praline, topped with vanilla custard-like cream, all coated with chocolate mousse and dark ganache. The mousse was rich and indulging, and vanillacream was light, cold which reduced the sickiness of all the chocolate on each layer. The amount of sweetness was just right. It was definitely goodness for all chocolate cravers.

I had doubt with the matcha mochi at first. I mean this is the same logic as you wouldn't order sweet and sour chicken at places claiming to serve Chiinese food to white people in Europe, right? Surprisingly, the mochi dough was extraordinarily fluffy and soft, very freshly made. Inside was some mochi mousse, which was strong, velvety, very light and airy. Of course you can not expect the matcha flavour to be as rich as the matcha icecream from Chacha Sweethouse, but it would work nicely as a sweet treat withyour teas and coffee if you'd prefer something light.

However the lemon meringue tart was rather than disappointing. The lemon curd was refreshing, while the meringue was creamy but not fluffy enough. The base of the tart is a buttery piece of cookie. Its texture was almost like a  thin slice of shortbread I personally think it was a little overly buttery as a refreshing dessert. So at the end I giving up on the tart base.

I also tried a matcha financier, which was outstandingly good. Its texture is a lot like the petit sponge that came with the coffee and teas, with rich aroma of matcha. It didn't look particularly outstanding but the rich matcha flavour really move me. Almost as strong as the matcha butter cake I find in Cha-no-wa!
