TWG Tea Salon & Boutique

I was incredibly tempted to visit TWG Tea Salon and Boutique after reading Jean and Fatin‘s reviews on it. Its located at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and great place to hang out if you’re up for high tea with friends and family. I’ve gotten my chance to be here after brunch at Acme with the girls.

Let’s make it short and call it TWG. This place adapts classic and modern interior decoration. What’s classic is the tea cannisters placed on wood shelves that can be found all around TWG. The marble tiles of deep green with gold borders make it luxury and modern.

They have a variety of cakes from small to larger size, different types of chocolates, macarons  and more. They are such temptation isn’t it? By looking at the colors of it just made me feel happy. The units of display also matches the flooring tiles as well.

There are three menus to begin with and one of the menu which is in the middle has cute tokens ( I think that’s what you called it) embedded with TWG’s name on it hanging out it. My bad for not taking down the name of the waiter, he is very polite and served us extremely well. We were not quite used to being addressed as ‘Madam’ but its all good.

Chocolate Fondant

‘TWG Tea’s warm chocolate cake served with a light custard cream and a scoop of homemade Vanilla Bourbon Tea ice cream’ – TWG Tea Salon and Boutique

I ordered this and was craving for chocolate that day. Fatin highly recommended it because she had it good on her last visit. The chocolate flavour is so rich and intense, the texture is like firm cream cheese. I wasn’t expecting the strawberry to be there! Kills my guilt from having all the sweetest things. I love the ice cream, the tea infused ice cream had a tinge of bitterness to it but not overwhelming. It goes very well together with the cake but when it comes to the end at finishing the cake, it was too sweet for me and the sourness from the strawberry did help to tackle the sweetness.

Crème Brûlée

‘A refreshing return to the traditional French confection, these two miniature crème brûlée are delightfully infused with two of our exclusive TWG’s Teas, Phuguri Dajeeling and Vanilla Bourbon Tea’ – TWG Tea Salon and Boutique

This is Fatin’s order and the crème brûlée comes in two little cute pots, totally different from what we usually see on crème brûlée. The difference between both is the creamy texture. I think on top of it is caramelized sugar, which adds great fragrant to the crème brûlée and its a little crunchy.

Tea Pasteries – Financier with Matcha Tea

‘Served with TWG Tea jelly whipped cream’ – TWG Tea Salon and Boutique

This three tier of goodies was Jean’s. They seems to come with somewhat tasted like cakes but they are moist, crunchy outside and soft inside. There are two flavours ordered by Jean which is green tea and chocolate. I love green tea and I’m still sticking to it even if they come in different forms.

Price: MYR13.50

Tea Macaron

‘TWG Tea’s reowned crispy almond biscuit with a soft centre. Infused with our signature tea, TWG Tea has transformed the macaron into a uniquely memorable confection’ – TWG Tea Slon and Boutique

I can’t remember which macaron that Jean ordered but I know there’s chocolate. The peach colored macaron smells amazing, just like Lancôme L’Extrait. It has rose scent to it and pretty sweet to my liking though  I had a quarter of it. The chocolate is good because it has a little bitterness to it, like dark chocolate.

MYR4.00 each

Its definitely a great experience though its a little wee bit expensive for me but I think it’ll be good to go for it occasionally. TWG Tea Salon and Boutique is now located at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Level 2 Couture Pavilion.
