Nothing is more thrilling and glamorous than sneaking away for a sumptuous afternoon tea with loved ones at TWG Tea. The made-in-Singapore luxury tea brand known for its extensive selection of exclusive handcrafted tea blends, TWG Tea is pulling out all the stops this Christmas with decadent delights revolving around its limited edition Forever Noel Tea from the Grand Mode Tea Collection.
A sparkling house-brewed green tea blended with a festival of flavours and warm winter spices, Forever Noel Tea ($48/100g) infuses into an aromatic cup with soft lingering notes of hibiscus, cinnamon, clove buds and orange peel that will bring warmth to heart and home this holiday season. Encased in a luxurious shade of emerald and gold, reminiscent of a Nobilis fir Christmas tree, the collectible tea tin is adorned with sleigh bells and mistletoe to celebrate this season of merriment.
To complete the TWG Tea experience, enjoy your special tea blend with complementing Forever Noel Tea-infused sweets such as Forever Noel Tea & Raspberry Chocolate Bonbons (from $15 for a box of 6). Indulge in a dark chocolate bonbon with a tangy ganache of raspberry purée infused with Forever Noel Tea, delicately crafted by hand and sprinkled with raspberry crumble.
If you love the brand’s legendary macarons, you must try the Forever Noel Tea Macarons (from $15 for a box of 6) washed in a merry red shade. The sweets are handcrafted with a Forever Noel Tea-infused apricot ganache delicately filled between crisp almond shells sprinkled with gold feuilletine bits.
