Food Trip: Late Afternoon High Tea at TWG Tea Salon and Boutique Singapore

Food Trip: Late Afternoon High Tea at TWG Tea Salon and Boutique Singapore

 

“Nothing fancy. We’ll just stroll down Orchard Road then probably go to Marina Bay later” was my response to my fiancé while we were dressing up one late Saturday afternoon in Singapore.

 

Fast forward to 20 minutes later. We find ourselves in Ion Orchard holding Louis Vuitton belts. Nothing fancy?

 

Fast forward to 15 minutes later. We find ourselves still in Ion Orchard. This time, looking at a bag in Hermes. Nothing fancy?

 

Fast forward to 10 minutes later. We find ourselves seating in TWG. Nothing fancy.

 

“THE TWG TEA STORY

TWG Tea was established in Singapore in celebration of the island’s great history as a trading post for teas, spices and fine epicurean products. TWG Tea, which stands for The Wellness Group, is a luxury concept that incorporates an international distribution network to professionals, unique and original retail outlets and exquisite tea rooms. A veritable tea institution, TWG Tea is passionate about sharing their expertise and has become a point of reference for tea lovers thirsty for knowledge.”

At first glance, it is everything fancy. Guests might be put off by the exquisite interior of the restaurant but TWG does offer affordable dishes.

The TWG Tea Salon is a homegrown brand of Singapore that has won over the taste buds of many tea and dessert lovers. Its growing popularity was mainly driven by the variety of exclusive and interesting tea blends and tea-infused delicacies .
For tea, we had the world’s first rich aromatic black tea accented with fresh notes of rare TWG bergamot and pure dark chocolate – – TWG Tea Earl Grey Chocolate.

Our uber delish tea-infused meals.
TWG Tea Lasagna. Oven-baked layers of pasta with bolognaise ragout with TWG signature homemade tomato and fresh basil sauce infused with Moroccan Mint Tea.

For dessert, nothing beats TWG Tea Macarons, TWG Tea’s renowned crispy almond biscuit with a soft centre. I am eternally hooked to the Napoleon Tea & Caramel flavor. Infused with TWG signature teas, TWG Tea has transformed the macaron into a uniquely memorable confection.

TWG takes pride in offering to its guests an excellent dining experience, inclusive of courteous service (except for one lady who discouraged me from taking pictures of the teahouse with my DLSR), fabulous food presentation and lovely cozy warm ambience.

Note to myself. Visit the new TWG teahouses in Manila when we get home. For now, our fancy late afternoon affair is almost over.

 

Loving high tea care of TWG. Now that’s fancy!
