So the other day me and Farhana went out to have our sushi session like usual at Pavilion..and before we end our day and went home, we stopped by this posh Tea Salon & Boutique called TWG, situated nearby Prada, Bvlgari, Chopard, stores in Level 2 around Couture area. It was my third time dining here. I wanted to have their tea and cake that day..
TWG Tea is an absolutely lovely spot for an afternoon tea with your ladies! What differentiates this tea boutique from the others is definitely their awesome idea of integrating their signature teas into savoury recipes that created a unique flavour introducing their patrons and tea lovers with the great sensations when they dine here!
This restaurant offers a wide selection of teas from all over the world. I think it was more than 300 selection of teas that you can choose! I had a hard time choosing what to order! The prices of the tea selection ranging from RM18 - RM377! Oh, I wonder how does that RM 377 tea tastes like?! I had tried a RM 10k tea before, from China.. it was a really, really good tea, but I still think that was waaaaayyyy overpriced! Although that tea that I had was more like a healthy tea kind of drinks. So I wonder how does this posh tea from TWG tastes like!
They have the Menu, the Tea Book and the Tea List.. So take your time to read them all!
Here's some of the extensive tea list that they have. Such a long list of tea with too many options to choose from with lots of interesting names! Sexy Tea, Secret Tea, Love Tea, Silver Pearl Tea, White House Tea, Rose Zephyr Tea, etc etc!
I ordered a Magic Flute Tea with its 18k gold-plated teapot. It smells like bubblegum but tastes like a caramel or something.. The pot is non-refillable condition, by the way. tskk
Like any other tea cafe, they also have the Tea Time Set. The Tea Time Set Menus start from 3 pm to 6 pm with 3 sets to choose from: 1837, Chic, and Fortune. I ordered the Chic set for RM 46 which includes the TWG Tea from the tea list, a choice of warm toasted sandwich (turkey ham, vegetarian or smoked salmon), a choice of 2 freshly bakes scones/muffins served with jelly and whipped cream or 1 patisserie from the trolley
The afternoon tea set arrived in a beautiful tray!
I chose 2 freshly baked scones served with jelly and whipped cream, instead of muffins..
Warm toasted sandwiches with gruyere cheese and smoked salmon, served with delicate green salad and house vinaigrette. I gotta say, I don't quite like it! It tasted weird, I only had a bite! >__<
We were spoiled with so many options to choose from the menu, but I was particularly interested in their Chocolate Fondant Cake when I came here so I made Farhana eat everything else that was on our table! haha... She ordered some macarons. (Which I don't quite like as well. haha)
I suddenly had this weird craving for their chocolate cake. I don't usually like chocolate cake actually. And the last time I tried this cake, I couldn't even finish it! I only had two bites of it.. I think it was too rich and too chocolatey for me. But I don't know why on that particular day (I was PMS-ing) I wanted this cake so bad! I've been craving for a lot of sweet stuff, including this Chocolate Fondant cake from TWG, so I just had to have it! (I finished everything, sampai licin! hehe)
Anyway, this warm chocolate cake is served with a light custard cream and a scoop of homemade Vanilla tea ice cream. The cake was dark and intense. Which made the custard cream and the Vanilla ice cream a perfect combination for its light flavour and texture. This is an awesome menu to order if you're on PMS and needed something very chocolatey! haha
Farhana and her cutie pie, Yusuf! Her baby was crying all the time we were there..and she said, "This is why we don't do tea!" haha.. Gotta enjoy my afternoon tea before I get a baby then! LOL ;p
Overall, I spent about RM 78 here, if I'm not mistaken.. And I'm definitely going back to this tea salon again to try many more of their tea! I think RM 46 for the afternoon tea set sounds good value for money. Tapi tak kenyang la. Nama pun minum petang, right? hehe. Oh, and the tea is not refillable though. So one pot may not be sufficient for 2-3 person. You may need to order more..
