Since ancient times, the art of making tea has been intrinsically linked with Chinese cuisine. Golden Flower was the first in Macau to provide personalized tea pairing services. One of the country's most prominent regions is Sichuan, the birthplace of the tea tree and the world's tea culture. Sichuan is also where the earliest written records on tea tree planting can be traced back to the Mengding Mountain. Blessed with a beautiful mountain range, abundant rain, and a misty and wet climate, Sichuan nurtures a variety of tea trees. Golden Flower's team of professional tea artisans has thoughtfully selected more than 50 types of tea from all over China, including many tea varieties from the Sichuan mountains to pair with Sichuan dishes and regional delicacies. The tea artisans also cleverly craft their own special teas to complement the restaurant ambience and the four seasons. To echo the design of Golden Flower, which is themed around a flower garden, the tea artisans have created their own "Golden Flower Signature Tea" blend with fresh, floral aromas. And, in harmony with the season's climate, guests may select from top-quality teas that are most beneficial for their health.
Designed by Wynn Design and Development, Golden Flower's interior mirrors the exquisite Chinese cuisine on offer. The restaurant reflects China's historic influence on the world, featuring a tea lounge and reception room that is inspired by a room from the home of British tycoon Frederick Leyland known as the "Peacock Room," now on permanent display at Washington D.C.'s Freer Gallery of Art. Other extravagant touches include a red-and-white cloisonné mosaic floor from Ravenna, Italy and Mariano Fortuny light fixtures that borrow from the aesthetic of Chinese silk lanterns. Complementing the opulent interior, is tableware by award-winning designer Alan Chan and staff uniforms by Rene Ozorio, the creative director of Jim Thompson, the Bangkok-based silk design house.
