Niccolo Suzhou collaborates with fine jewellery brand Qeelin of Kering Luxury Group to launch a co-branded Bo Bo afternoon tea from October 1 to December 31, 2022.

Inspired by Qeelin’s modern artistic interpretation of traditional elements, Niccolo Suzhou further explores its ‘Spirit of Discovery’ on creative delights, accentuating the brand’s contemporary chic style.

The series of tea delicacies offers a new sensory experience above the clouds to distinguished guests made up of modern elites and leaders. 

Since Qeelin’s founding in 2004, every piece of jewellery has carried rich cultural connotations, reinterpreting traditional symbols with stylish designs intended for daily wear, infusing pieces with new life, and adding contemporary meaning to Chinese heritage.

Named after the Qilin, an auspicious Chinese mythical animal and icon of love, Qeelin fuses unbridled creativity with excellence in craftsmanship. It brings a touch of playfulness and surprise into the world of fine jewellery. 

Pandas are the muse for Qeelin’s Bo Bo collection. Today, 46% of the natural habitat for wild pandas is not covered within conservation zones, causing severe damage to their environment.

Through partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Qeelin hopes to artificially restore bamboo forests to improve pandas' enviornment and to establish better frameworks for their management and protection.


The creative pastry team of Niccolo Suzhou captures the fashion elements from Qeelin’s Bo Bo collection, using the signature colours of black and red and a panda-shaped tea stand to reclaim the artistic ‘art of dining’ energy.


The hotel’s talented pastry chef, Laem, also creates exquisite desserts with panda elements that delight the taste buds.


The New Bo Bo themed afternoon tea set is priced at RMB588, inclusive of five tailor-made savouries, five themed desserts and the chef’s special pass around.

Guests can also indulge in 10g of exclusive caviar with Blinis and two glasses of Niccolo Prosecco by adding RMB100 when ordering.

Experience freedom by revelling in the cloud-high tea experience while appreciating the modern creativity of afternoon tea delicacies.

The Qeelin’s Bo Bo collection of jewellery will officially be launched in November 2022.

And the desserts are inclusive of Strawberry Heart, Red Velvet Semifreddo, Cream Cheese Orange Cannoli, Salted Caramel Chocolate Bo Bo and Panda Tangerine Pastries.

The special pass-around of the tea set also excites the senses with a handcrafted duo of red velvet and squid ink shaomai.
