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.
