VistaJet International Ltd. is bringing tea to the forefront, so guests can sip and savor in luxury.
VistaJet is a global business aviation company. It charters corporations, governments and private clients to 187 countries, covering 96 percent of the world. Members of the private airline – who receive access to a fleet of 360 aircraft – can now enjoy sparkling tea mocktails and a special tea service, all in honor of China’s traditional Mid-Autumn Festival, which honors the harvest moon.
According to VistaJet, a full moon symbolizes a full circle, representing reunion and togetherness in many cultures in Asia. And as many across the region mark the harvest moon with special events and celebrations for Mid-Autumn Festival, VistaJet is creating memorable moments – with tea – at 45,000 feet up in the sky.
Departing from Singapore, while enjoying the Michelin-starred dining on board, VistaJet members can taste the handcrafted mooncakes custom made for VistaJet by Shangri-La Singapore, filled with premium ingredients and less sugar. Pu-erh tea accompanies the mooncakes, creating an enchanting blend of earth notes and robust woody aromas.
The mooncake tasting experience is completed with sparkling tea mocktails – a Bellini Vista and Night Flight – made with unique recipes created only for VistaJet by Fortnum & Mason for the Mid-Autumn festival.
With organic sources from the U.K., Bellini Vista is a mocktail twist on the Bellini classic cocktail. It pairs well with the berry notes and dry edge of the Rose Sparkling tea. The citrus of the drink provides a balance with a Bergamot aroma that elevates the zing finishing of mooncakes.
Night Flight’s ripe fruitiness provides a lovely, interesting pairing with the floral notes of the original sparkling tea plus the herbal, savory fragrance of fresh thyme and gentle spice of cold brew chai. It balances off the sharp and edgy notes with mellow and malty mooncakes. At Hong Kong’s 181 Fortnum & Mason Restaurant, located at the city’s iconic Victoria Harbor, VistaJet members can also enjoy the festive tea mocktails – compliments of VistaJet – when dining in the restaurant.
“For VistaJet, being global means adapting our service to the culture of our guests,” said Matteo Atti, chief marketing officer at VistaJet. “Savoring the Mid-Autumn festival in China with tea and mooncakes; sipping sake with Tsukimi dango, admiring the full moon in Japan; flying families back to their hometowns to pay respect to their ancestors during Chuseok in Korea – we like this time of the year because it celebrates the ties with our families and loved ones.”
The special tea offerings are a part of VistaJet’s “Full Moon on Board” experience, and its only offered in September. To learn more about VistaJet, visit VistaJet.com.
