Raise your little pinkies, tea addicts – TWG Tea Salon & Boutique has opened in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur!
Known for showcasing an illustrious heritage of the finest and most luxurious tea traditions from around the globe, infused with a contemporary, epicurean sensibility – TWG Tea Salon & Boutique boasts grandeur that is timeless, yet surprisingly modern.
If you frequent Singapore for shopping, you would have seen this extremely luxe establishment at premier malls such as Marina Bay Sands and ION Orchard.
The maiden KL boutique will be located in the Couture Pavilion section, and TWG Tea’s newest 2,300 sq. ft. destination will mark the brand’s fourth international opening in two years – after Tokyo, London, Hong Kong and Dubai.
The intimate 56-seat Tea Salon features TWG Tea’s signature rattan-backed black velvet chairs and crisp white linens. Featuring a tea-infused sweet and savoury menu, gastronomes will be delighted by an exceptional dining experience with dishes carefully developed with select TWG Teas, such as the Wagyu Burger accompanied by 1837 Green Tea infused vinaigrette, and TWG Tea Lasagna prepared with a handmade tomato and basil sauce infused with Moroccan Mint Tea.
TWG Tea-infused desserts are meticulously handcrafted daily and include delicacies such as the Chocolate Fondant served with a light custard cream and a scoop of homemade Vanilla Bourbon Tea ice cream, 8 vibrant flavours of tea-infused macarons – including the popular the Napoleon, a jet-black macaron infused with salted caramel and Napoleon Tea – and a breath-taking selection of tea pastries served with TWG Tea jelly and whipped cream.
Tea offerings include unique harvests from the most prestigious gardens and renowned tea blends, prepared behind the bar according to TWG Tea’s exact specifications and meticulously served in characteristic Design Teapots plated in 18k gold, hand-blown glass French Teapots, or iced in tall crystal stemware.
The Tea Boutique
The TWG Tea Boutique captures the imagination with hard wood mahogany tea counters, brass weighing scales and walls of TWG Tea signature yellow artisan tea tins filled with more than 450 of the most celebrated fine harvest and exclusive tea blends in the world, all of which may be purchased by weight from 50 grams in sachets or perfectly accessorised in one of TWG Tea’s 45 bespoke tea tins.
Brightly coloured, whimsical packed teas are aplenty, such as the Haute Couture Teas, the brand’s most anticipated and celebrated tea collection which features unique tea blends crafted by TWG Tea innovators according to the flavours of the season and packaged in designer hues that reflect the latest catwalk trends.
With hundreds of exquisite tea accessories to complement the selection of teas, including exclusive TWG Tea designs such as hand-blown glass Mirage and Medina teapots, mirror-finish platinum Glamour Tea Bowls, and the much acclaimed Design Teapot which keeps tea warm for over an hour, it is a pleasure indeed to select just the perfect gift or create a bespoke hamper for that special someone, whatever the occasion may be.
In addition to an astounding array of takeaway tea-infused patisseries of all varieties and sizes, the TWG Tea Boutique in Kuala Lumpur will also offer 12 chocolate bonbons composed of dark, milk and white chocolate infused with the brand’s iconic tea blends, including Earl Grey Fortune, 1837 Black and White Night Jasmine Tea, alongside an assortment of 6 gourmet chocolate bars encased in jewel toned packaging.
