Tea and Mooncakes: TWG Tea Crafts the Perfect Match

September 09, 2015

Tea & Mooncakes, Mid Autumn Festival

Throughout history, tea has been served to accompany sweets, to balance flavours and refresh the palate. TWG Tea has instituted the contemporary tea experience giving customers the opportunity to learn more about tea – and tea pairing – which has created such a trend these past eight years.

As with the origins of mooncake and tea pairing, there are different variations abounding in countries across Asia. Tea culture developed in the past into an object of veneration and trade throughout the world.

In the spirit of celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival, enjoy some of TWG Tea's exclusive tea blends that honour this season's flavours:

TWG Tea’s first and most beloved exclusive blend Silver Moon Tea was specially conceived and carefully blended by our team of experts to pair with any variety of snow skin or traditional baked mooncakes. A light and fragrant melange of green teas – the perfect variety of tea to complement desserts and sophisticated patisseries – is blended with a very aromatic and heady bouquet of ripe wild berries which finishes with a hint of sweet vanilla which subdues the sweet overtones of snowskin mooncakes and balances the rich notes of traditional mooncakes, making the Silver Moon Tea the perfect blend to accompany your celestial voyage this season.

To characterize the elegance of Singapore’s taste and multifarious cultures and tea traditions, TWG Tea launched the Singapore Breakfast Tea, a natural blend of green tea, black tea, rare spices, and notes of sparkling citrus fruits to pair with the rich and complex flavours of the traditional baked skin mooncakes,
