TWG Tea ♥ ♥


After checking in my bags I still have an hour to spare before my Yung Kee century eggs (to-die-for!) are ready for pick up, so I thought I'd have a hurried but nice afternoon tea at TWG.

There's a pretty tea boutique on one side

And a handsome tea room on the other

OMGTWG's got over 1,000 single estate fine harvest teas and exclusive blends!
Each blend is assigned some sort of serial number, too. The more I read the description
of each selection, the more overwhelmed I get. I am confusion.

So I just asked the lady to give me their signature tea - the 1837 Black Tea.
"1837 Black is a unique blend of black tea with notes of fruits and flowers from the Bermuda Triangle
which leaves a lingering aftertaste of ripe berries, anise, and caramel. A timeless classic." 
I loved it. I also added a little sugar because the sugar scooper was too cute to ignore. :)

These were the selection of cakes and pastries for the afternoon tea set. They all looked kinda sad.

Something merry christmassy from the boutique caught my attention.
Strawberry Mille-feuille with Matcha Green Tea.

It was flaky, yes, but the cream wasn't as matcha as I wanted it to be.
Still finished the whole thing though. Not a single crumb left.


Excited that TWG in Greenbelt 5 is opening tomorrow. :)
