Tea time at TWG Tea Salon & Boutique Greenbelt
Pretty much a late post, because my colleagues and I actually dined at TWG Tea Salon & Boutique last week. But the experience was very much worth it. I mean, it’s not everyday that I get to do something indulgent when it comes to food.
We prepared for this probably-once-in-a-year-if-not-a-lifetime event, which is to eat at this really posh tea salon in Greenbelt 5. The store was pretty intimidating, with its gold and brown interiors reminiscent of Singapore in the 1800s. But the staff was very accommodating, answering our queries from the teas they offer to the food that could match the drink you like.
(Sorry for not posting much photos of the interiors, was too busy browsing through the menu.)
I was pretty set on the tea that I wanted: Chocolate Mint Truffle Tea.
My friends weren’t sure what to get, though, so the waiter was kind enough to make us smell a few sets of tea leaves. One of them opted for the same tea as mine, the other went for Silver Moon, a kind of green tea with hints of fragrant strawberry. She paired her tea with the one thing she wanted to order: Wagyu Burger.
My other friend had Eggs Benedict.
As for me, the waiter recommended that I go for something light to complement the taste of the tea that I chose. So I went with the TWG Tea Salad.
My other friend, who came it a bit later, ordered Bain de Roses Tea Macarons at PHP50 each. He said it tasted like rose. I didn’t attempt to taste it. Hehe!
To be honest, I wasn’t really sure if my tummy would be satisfied with the salad I ate. I got surprised that I felt full even before I finished my plate. I think the foie gras did it.
Happy smiles there. The verdict: Yes, we were so glad that we went on with the plan of dining at TWG. It may be pricey (for us “commoners”, LOL!) but the food was superb and the tea selection was “wow”. The staff was great, too.
I never thought I’d be literally splurging on food. But then, I think it’s good to really indulge once in a while.
