This mid-Autumn festival, TWG Tea takes inspiration from traditions and a desire to redesign modernity by advocating to the beautiful and sophisticated traditions, with the new red and gold Longevity Mooncake gift box that contrasts the most revered and precious ingredients with exquisite Asian flavours.
TWG Tea Mooncakes are entirely hand-crafted in Singapore by TWG Tea’s Chef Pâtissier with meticulous effort to blend flavours in absolute harmony. Each artisanal Mooncake is perfectly shaped and delicately embossed with TWG Tea’s logo devoted to unify a myriad of flavours and aroma of our signature teas and to perfectly pair and enhance a unique tasting experience. Continually setting the trend of blending modernity with tradition, TWG Tea congregate families and friends to savour delectable mooncakes as sweet memories of reminiscence fills the occasion.
Setting the trend for the entire Mooncake collection this year is the Longevity Tea; a precious essence of a magical mélange of rare white teas. Legend says that drinking a liquid potion containing the auric metal or to savor it out of a golden cup would make the drinker immortal. This Longevity Tea is also infused into a timeless favourite; the traditional Constellation Mooncake. Its golden crust encases a brown lotus filling with a hint of ginger scattered of roasted melon seeds and a classic salted egg yolk heart.
Ever attentive to tradition, TWG Tea embodies the exclusive vintage Pu-Erh 1993 into the traditional Moonlight Mooncake, a golden brown crust abundant with smooth white lotus paste. This delicately lavished Mooncake uses one of the finest Pu-Erhs in the world which had mellowed with age, developing a sweet and slightly earthy aroma. Perfectly balancing and enhancing a sweet and flowery flavour, it envelopes a fresh reminiscent of the earth after a morning rain with sprinkles of black and white sesame seeds.
TWG Tea shares three of its most distinctive tea blends in the spirit of the approaching Mid-Autumn Festival, each intricately crafted to be savoured in perfect company with a traditional mooncake. A distinguished cup of TWG tea is the perfect match.
