Where are Munich’s well-heeled women sipping oolong these days? We’d venture to guess it’s at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, which just partnered up with Jimmy Choo for an unusually shoe-centric tea service.

The Jimmy Choo Fashion Afternoon Tea takes place in the Lobby Lounge and Mandarin Bar, which is all leather club chairs and plush, patterned sofas. The tea, available through February 28, takes its cues from Choo’s 2014 Cruise collection. So think pointy toes, metal studs, and python skin—but, um, sugar-dusted? (Just go with it.)

The service starts at $53 a head, and offers goodies like chocolate-raspberry macaroons, fruit-caviar shooters, and organic green tea. And then, there’s the piece de resistance: pink candy purses, filled with chocolates. (Modeled, of course, on Jimmy Choo’s swanky bags.) There are some glitzy extras, too: Guests get a glass of bubbly and a gift set with the fashion brand’s perfume.

So, the tea service itself is definitely cheaper than a pair of Jimmy Choos. A stay at the hotel, though, is a different story. We took a peek at rates for this weekend, and they range from $783 to $1,460 a night.
