TWG Tea Salon and Shop Singapore

Great Afternoon Tea

If you consider yourself a high tea connoisseur then a visit to TWG Tea Salon will be a delight, where you will find not only hundreds of unusual blends but also some tea-inspired cakes and desserts. There are three tea rooms in Singapore, where you can get a treat and a cuppa at any time of the day. However TWG is extremely popular with the crowds in the early afternoon for their traditional tea and cake sets, so it is worth booking ahead.

Established in the city in 1837, due to the important location of Singapore in terms of the tea trade, the brand is now famous around the world for its unusual and luxurious blends. Although many of the tea rooms are located in shopping malls, stepping through the gold and glass doors takes you back in time. The ambience reminds you of a London tea salon in the early 20th century, starched white linen, dark wood and shiny marble floors. Having tea here is a real pleasure, the waiters are attentive and happy to share their knowledge of the brews with you, and every cup and cake is prepared with utmost care.

It can be tricky with such a large number of teas to pick from, especially given that their names do not give much away... What exactly does ‘A Weekend in Paris’ taste like?! Unless you are a professional then it is best to take advice from those in the know, who will bring you a selection to sniff to help you make your selection. Popular choices include Chocolate Earl Grey, Pink Garden with tiny rosebuds and Happy Birthday tea, a celebration of vanilla and red berries. I went for the Weekend in Singapore blend, which – in a nod to the parks and nature in the city – is a fragrant mix of caramel, berries and anise. Tea comes served in a china teapot, kept warm by an 18 carat gold plated casing.

The food menu is equally appetising, whether you are looking for lunch or just an afternoon snack. TWG Tea Salon Singapore is also a great place for Sunday brunches with six sets available which include a main course, scones, dessert, juice and your choice of tea. Sticking with tradition, we recommend trying their tea time set menus which deliver a classic afternoon tea experience, with finger sandwiches, and scones. Most of the dishes have a slight tea twist to them, which complement rather than overpower these well-known snacks. This includes cucumber and earl grey infused cream cheese, prawn with silver tea cream and chicken with Comptoir des Indes tea infused crème fraiche, although the highlight has to be the aromatic TWG Jelly that is served with the scones.
