TWG Tea Salon & Boutique @ Pavilion, KL

Saturday, January 4, 2014

I must confess, I think I'm a little too obsessed over afternoon teas after having one in Majestic Hotel. I'm currently on a quest to search for the best afternoon teas in town! And so, I found myself having a date with my girls at TWG Tea Salon.

It was a Sunday and it was really packed in TWG! They do not accept reservations on weekends because they have very limited space :'( Since Vivien hasn't arrived yet, me and Angeline decided to walk around Pavilion. We were very lucky that the second time we went in, there was no queue anymore and they had a few empty tables.

They had a special festive menu for Christmas 
TWG has a long list of different types of teas, I think it was about 8 pages long!
We couldn't decide so the waitress suggested "Pink garden tea" as we were craving for floral tea.
We ordered the Fortune Tea Set(RM55) which comes with a warm toasted sandwich of your choice, scones/muffins served with TWG tea jelly and whipped cream, macaroons and a pot of tea.

*The pot of tea can only fill 3 cups and it is not refillable.
The bottom dish is the TWG Tea Croque Imperial which has smoked salmon and Gruyère cheese served with fresh salad tossed in house vinaigrette. The sandwich was seriously mouthwatering, one of the best sandwiches I've eaten in my life.
Second tier, freshly baked scones!
I have a fear of scones ever since I ate the ones at Majestic Hotel because it was really hard! Vivien insisted we ordered scones because it is a must-have in afternoon tea. I seriously didn't regret listening to her, these scones did changed my perception towards scones. It was warm and it went really well with the TWG tea jelly & whipped cream. We tried to order again but they were all sold out! WHAT! :'(
Top tier: TWG signature macaroons
Our choices were Bain de Rose Tea, Earl Grey & Chocolate and 1837 Black Tea & Blackcurrant.
My absolute favourite is Bain de Rose Tea, it wasn't too sweet and I love the rosy scent!

TWG has a total of 10 flavours which are sold at RM5 each:
Napoleon Tea & Caramel
Camelot Tea & Praline
Earl Grey Fortune & Chocolate
1837 Black Tea & Blackcurrant
Moroccan Mint Tea
Bain de Roses Tea
Lemon Bush Tea
Grand Wedding Tea, Passion Fruit & Coconut
Vanilla Bourbon Tea & Kaya

Main Course: Smoked Norwegian Salmon (RM46)
Smoked Salmon with roe and mascarpone cream cheese sprinkled with Gyokuro Samurai tea leaves, accompanied with toasted brioche. The smoked salmon was really fresh!
Our warm toasted brioche was really soft in the middle and crunchy on the sides!
Main Course: Wagyu Beef Burger (RM43) *recommended*
Grilled Wagyu beef burger served with lettuce, tomato and Emmental cheese topped with horseradish mayonnaise and served on a homemade bum. It is accompanied by marchstick potatoes and a mesclun salad tossed in an 1837 Green Tea infused vinaigrette. The beef patty was cooked medium rare, it was just nice and very juicy inside!
Main Course: Egg Benedict in smoked salmon (RM28.50)
Homemade toasted English muffins topped with two poached farmhouse eggs served with creamy hollandaise sauce. You can have a choice of smoked salmon or turkey ham! The poached eggs were overcooked and the sauce was a tad bit too sour for our liking. This dish was really disappointing, I don't recommend you guys ordering this!
Us with our food!
Angeline & Vivien <3
The bill came up to a total of RM180+(including tax) for the three of us, I think the price is more affordable compared to the one I had in Majestic Hotel and this meal really is worth the price! I also love the service there, the waitress who served us was really friendly! The only fallback is that the place is really small and crowded, I couldn't enjoy my tea properly as I have to make way for people to pass through.

 Rating: 8/10

Will I revisit again? I would definitely come back and indulge in another TWG afternoon tea with my girls ♥
