Lovely weather we’re having today, innit?
I’m sorry – when someone mentions tea, I like to whip out my annoying, posh accent. Ha 😀
It was a nice afternoon, so Mi and I stopped by for tea at this posh tea place called TWG at Sunway Pyramid. It’s a small open cafe in the middle of the concourse area, cordoned off by glass walls. The waiters were all dressed up like butlers in white button up shirts and black pants. A large tea selection lined the walls, and little golden tea pots sat on the shelves. The display cases had colourful yummy macarons and cakes just screaming to be eaten.
Priding themselves as ‘the finest luxury tea brand in the world’, TWG offers well over 1,000 single-estate, fine harvest teas and exclusive blends.
Tea-related items like this ornately carved teapot were on display in glass cases around the cafe.
Some of the different teas available. There were tea leaves from all over the world, be it Western or Asian tea, like Pu-Erh or Tieguanyin. You can also buy nicely packaged ones to take home.
We ordered the Darjeeling set at RM30 which came with two scones + jam and cream. The pot of tea costs RM19 each, and was only good for three, shallow cups. 😡 The tea was aromatic and fragrant, but not much different from the sachet ones I usually drink at home. Maybe I just don’t have the tongue of a tea connoisseur.
The scones were nice: Crumbly and not too doughy.
They also have breakfast and brunch, but be prepared to fork out some money. If you feel like splurging on having tea in a classy environment, then head on down to TWG. They also have branches in Pavilion KL, KLIA and The Gardenz, Mid Valley.
