The lavish tradition of afternoon tea has been around for centuries. With hotels and other establishments offering it more nowadays, the famous British custom has become well-received and has also undergone innovative twists.
Proof of the global sensation’s popularity on our shores is the local success of TWG Tea. Renowned purveyors of fine teas as well as modern tea accessories, the brand opened in 2012 and is now celebrating its solidified place in the Philippines.
Celebrating TWG Tea’s sixth anniversary with a special menu
Marking this milestone, the TWG Tea Salon & Boutique in BGC launched the Anniversary Menu. The special à la carte menu showcases a mix of tea-infused items for a unique gastronomic experience.
The menu has seven different dishes as well as the option to pair it with over four hundred tea variants. Diners can start with a Tokyo-Singapore Tea-infused Soft Shell Crab Salad for an appetizer. Their rich diversity of flavors can be seen in two delectable seafood main courses. The first in a delicate Poached Cod in a Black Nectar Tea-infused broth and, the second, a Seafood Pasta drizzled with Matcha oil.
On the heartier side, the Duck & Foie Gras with apricot chutney infused with Alfonso Tea is a decadent choice. Likewise, the Braised Lamb Shank in Riviera Tea-infused red wine on a spiced pumpkin risotto is also noteworthy.
Finally, TWG Tea has two desserts to cap off the meal. Refresh with the Apple Surprise‘s apple mousse with Vanilla Bourbon Tea-infused custard and a mango coulis heart. In contrast, why not end with the sweet note of the Chocolate Kahlua with Truffle infused with Chocolate Tea?
Above all, their special edition Anniversary Tea is not to be missed. The black tea blends hints of exotic fruits from the Bermuda Triangle and Tahitian Spice, and is simply tea-licious!
Six iconic collections for six illustrious years
For its six years here, TWG Tea curated collections of the finest tea and signature tea accessories as a tribute to the celebration. Each is truly a testament to TWG Tea’s continued commitment to tea lovers for years to come.
