March 15, 2016
On March 20th, 2016 in conjunction with World Macaron Day or "Le Jour du Macaron”, celebrate with a beautiful and colourful selection of delicious TWG Tea-Infused Macarons. The Urban Tea Merchant will be donating half of the proceeds from TWG Tea Macarons sales on March 20th to BC Children's Hospital.
TWG Tea is passionately innovative in the conception of tea-infused patisseries of exquisite taste and uses only the purest natural ingredients. All macarons are carefully infused with a selection of TWG Tea's Exclusive Tea Blends and perfected by TWG Tea’s legendary Executive Patisserie Chef, Philippe Langlois.
Executive Patisserie Chef, Philippe Langlois says: "TWG Tea macarons are one of those beautiful but also one of the most fragile patisserie creations and must be made entirely by hand from start to finish. To ensure that our customers in Singapore and around the world enjoy our macarons at their best, we have made the bold and costly investment of building state-of-the-art macaron laboratories in every city where we open, and train our pâtissiers in the art of crafting our unique tea-infused macarons recipes fresh every day."
In Singapore, the process begins in TWG Tea’s state of the art patisserie laboratories each morning at the break of dawn to ensure that the tantalizing almond cookies are always perfectly crisp with a chewy centre. Each macaron is infused with a signature TWG Tea blend and features the freshest and most exceptional ingredients with no artificial flavourings or preservatives. To cater to the Asian palate, the sugar in these jewel-toned confections has been painstakingly reduced by a third, making TWG Tea macarons unique in the market, tastier and healthier than their counterparts. A treasured favourite, TWG Tea sells over 6,000 macarons a day in Singapore alone.
