I have a “thing” for tea. It’s is my drink of choice. I prefer a cup of malty Assam or citrusy Earl Grey over a demitasse of espresso or a goblet of red wine any day, any time.
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to discover TWG Tea, a Singapore-based luxury tea brand, à la Mariage Frères or Le Palais des Thés. TWG Tea’s hundreds of blends, stocked apothacery-style in their stylish boutiques, can cost from $4.50 to $4,500 for 50 grams!
I popped by their lovely little tea house on the third floor of ION Orchard to pick up 100 grams of Singapore Breakfast Tea and to munch on two tea-infused macarons. (The Moroccan Mint Tea macaron was a bit overpowering, but the Grand Wedding Tea, passionfruit, and coconut macaron was divine.)
My dear New York City friends: Dean & DeLuca on Madison Ave carries TWG Tea.
Do you drink tea? Do you have any favorite blends and brands?
