TWG Tea stands for The Wellness Group. It is a  luxury concept that incorporates an international distribution network to professionals, unique and original retail outlets and exquisite tea rooms. A veritable tea institution, TWG Tea is passionate about sharing their expertise and has become a point of reference for tea lovers thirsty for knowledge (Source).

Consider this a capsule review since I've tasted only a pair of TWG tea and pastry. I've never heard of a luxury tea brand before so this was a new experience for me.

Hazelnut Mousse (Php 220)
It is a dessert that's mouth watering. Sweetness is not overpowering and the texture is two-thumbs up. Slice is large enough to share if you don't have a sweet tooth, really. This concoction is made of premium ingredients and to say it's delicious will be an understatement. I only have pleasant words to this piece.

The White Tea (Php 295 per serving)
Yes, you may pick up your jaw from the floor now. It's too expensive, I know. And I agree with you, gracefully. Maybe it's just the novice in me but I can't appreciate the x-factor from that tea. Tea from other brands do more justice on the price tag in terms of its flavor and aroma, but again, maybe that's just me. ☺

TWG Ambiance 
For once in my tea-drinking life, I feel like I'm somewhere 'royal'. The moment you step into the shop, the 'butlers' were more than happy to make you comfortable all the way. The warm lighting and grand furniture, coupled with golden pots and ceramic tea cups have sealed TWG's 'your highness' edge.

CMK Thinks
The place definitely left a special mark on me but the price factor is undeniably overrated. I may see myself going back to this place on some rare occasions. It's interesting to visit the place just to check how it feels to sip a hot cup of tea from a golden pot! 

If your boss / parents / special someone is crazy about tea... treat them here, at your own (wallet's) risk. Our tab was roughly Php 900, by the way. Other than a dent on our wallets, we had so much fun catching up and laughing our hearts out. While in front of that golden tea pot, of course.-CMK
