While I love my coffee, I am also a tea drinker.
There are now a lot of TWG branches in the Philippines, and I have been to two of them Greenbelt and Newport City (Resorts World Manila).
*Not to be confused with Twinnings, another tea company. TWG tea stands for The Wellness Group, and this luxury tea company “is a luxury concept that incorporates an international distribution network to professionals, unique and original retail outlets and exquisite tea rooms”. TWG originated from Singapore.
Fancy, lovely and very English! They have very luxurious uniformed look in all of their stores.
My first TWG visit was on Dec 2012 , and have been coming back once in a while. I love their macaroons!
They also serve cake.
Their tea boutique is also quite a colorful eye candy!
Usually we go for the tea time set (Chic-Royal set), since it is a little bit of everything with the option to add more If you like. The one we chose consists of a pot of tea, sandwiches (- Prawn with Silver Moon Tea infused cream, Smoked salmon with Mascarpone and chives, Roma tomato and Moroccan Mint Tea infused sauce) and scones. *but we opted to add another tea pot.*
And added macaroons. (50php per piece) My favorite is the Napoleon tea & Caramel.
Their prices really reflect “couture” tea.
But they make up for it with their luxurious ambiance, the place is good for dates, bonding moments with friends and family. Just don’t come here in a hungry mode as there is a waiting list (on peak hours), the service can be slow, staff is friendly and knowledgeable about tea.
