I hated tea when I was a child. It didn’t taste anything, it was “too light”, it didn’t wake me up the way coffee woke me up, what was the point! But later on I acquired the taste for it. There was a time when I stayed away from coffee and took tea all the time. It stopped when I got a job that offered free coffee in the pantry, but now I want to lower my consumption to one cup of coffee a day, and increase my tea intake once again.
J’s dad had some RW points that we used at the newly opened TWG Tea Salon and Boutique.

It was around 4 pm, and we were still full from lunch, so we had their simplest Tea Time set, 1837 Tea Time. This includes:
- a choice of tea (restricted to those that cost PhP 195)
- two muffins or two scones with Tea Jelly and Whipped Cream, or a choice of dessert from their trolley
We also ordered some macaroons.
Their tea list is extensive indeed. We were overwhelmed.
J’s trying to make sense of it all.
We just ordered their 1837 Black Tea (for me) and Earl Grey (for J). I got crumbs all over the white tablecloth. Barbarian!
The muffins were good but were way too heavy for tea time. Get the scones!
I’d like to go back. I’ve been dreaming of those scones.

I want to try this so bad. The reviews haven’t been all very positive but I still think it’s worth trying. Also, scones.
SCONES! Okay naman e, but then we didn’t really expect anything. :)
I am positively addicted to TWG’s creme caramel tea.
Ooh I haven’t tried! Do they come in tea bags?
Yep! I get a whole boxes of the stuff (usually from La Creperie at Galleria). A bit pricy, but worth it. It’s has deep, sweet notes.
Oh I didn’t know you transferred to your own domain already! Congratulations! (Toinks, huli sa balita!)
I’ve always wanted to try RW’s lunch buffet. Heard it’s only P200 or so, but I can’t be sure if they’ll allow my 11-month old inside. Was told they don’t accept anybody below 18 (Well, technically she’s a minor. Hehe).
Lunch buffet? You mean the one in Mercado? If that’s the one, bawal nga minors doon hehe. Though I’m not sure if it’s only PhP 200.
hindi din ako mahilig sa tea pero gusto ko din ma-try yan dahil ang cute ng store nila sa gb5. kaso wala akong makasama. ayaw ni kim ng tea.
Sama mo kami! Haha. Di ko pa nakita yung nasa GB5. Baka dapat matry lang muna ni Kim ang tsaa. Marami silang flavors e. As in ang damiiiiii.
