Since the opening of the first TWG Tea Salon & Boutique in the Philippines in 2012, TWG Tea continues to charm tea lovers and gourmands alike with the finest selection of tea, modern tea accessories and the art of tea gastronomy. This year, the luxury tea brand and leading tea innovator marks its 6th anniversary of exponential growth and expansion in Manila with a special anniversary à la carte menu to delight devotees with an extraordinary tea-infused culinary experience.
At the forefront of tea gastronomy, a myriad of fine harvest teas and exclusive tea blends is artfully incorporated into each specialty dish, imparting unique flavours and introducing a whole new world of sensations to diners at TWG Tea Salons & Boutiques.
The celebration begins with an appetizing starter of Tokyo-Singapore Tea infused soft shell crab on a bed of mesclun salad with sesame miso dressing (PhP545).
Showcasing a rich diversity of flavours and tastes, delectable seafood main courses include a lusciously poached cod with caramelized brussels sprouts, potatoes and shimeji mushrooms in a Black Nectar Tea infused broth (PhP655); and the delicious seafood squid ink pasta with scallops, mussels and shrimp, drizzled with Matcha oil (PhP895).
For those who prefer something hearty, savour on the perfectly pan-seared duck breast with caramelised foie gras, celeriac, apple butter, and apricot chutney infused with Alfonso Tea (PhP1,355).
Lamb shank tenderly braised in Riviera Tea infused red wine with spiced pumpkin risotto (PhP1,645).
End the gastronomic journey on a sweet note with a rich and smooth dark chocolate with a coffee panna cotta pudding, glazed with a dark chocolate kahlua concoction topped with a chocolate truffle infused with Chocolate Tea (PhP275); or opt for the refreshing green apple mousse layered with Vanilla Bourbon Tea infused custard on a vanilla sable crust with a mango coulis heart (PhP275).
The anniversary menu is available from 14 to 25 November 2018 at all TWG Tea Salons & Boutiques in the Philippines. TWG Tea Salons & Boutiques are located in Greenbelt 5, Shangri-La Plaza, and Central Square.
