TWG certainly know their teas, and this elegant establishment in the heart of the Shoppes Mall adjacent to Marina Bay Sands is a delightful way to while away a few hours sipping tea or having lunch. We have eaten dessert here before, but this time we just needed to rest our weary legs from shopping. As we sat and watched the dishes come out for other diners, every meal looked sublime, especially the crispy skinned fish.
It’s a place to be seen, locals dress up to dine here or have afternoon tea, and the wait staff look immaculate.
We were offered a range of menus – food, specials, and tea, as well as a tea catalogue to describe each tea on perfect detail. There are hundreds of teas on offer, and I chose an iced Apricot tea, where my partner chose a hot Kenilworth orange pekoe.
We also chose some macarons to nibble on – the dark one was a Napoleon tea and caramel, and the red one was a black tea and blackcurrant.
As you would expect, everything was perfectly presented and delicious. My apricot iced tea was served with a sugar syrup in a jug so that I could add as much as needed. The apricot flavour was lovely and made for a really refreshing drink. The Kenilworth was clean and flavoursome. Macarons were made with care and the flavours really shone through.
TWG is synonymous with style and elegance, this is the perfect place for afternoon tea.
