An exclusive green and black blend
As dramatic and uplifting as the Himalayan plains, this remarkable delicate TWG black tea is blended with sweet fruits and spicy overtones to soothe and revive the spirit.
It tastes slightly gingery spicy.
An exclusive white blend
Rare Yin Zhen and sweet vanilla have been blended as an ode to a leisurely promenade along the cobblestone streets of Paris. Nard and wild flowers decorate this cup with their crisp, floral flavour and leave a heady, perfumed aftertaste.
It tastes rather light with a slight flowery taste.
The Antiote black truffle scrambled eggs is served in black colored egg shell look alike cup, with soldiers by the side. The scrambled eggs smell of truffle and tastes creamy and rich.
There is pan fried carrot cake which looks slightly over fried as it is a bit too char. The inside is a bit too soft.
There is also the fried shrimp fritter which is filled with juicy shrimps. Have it with the delicious chilli sauce.
For steamed, there is Siew Mai topped with a piece of juicy scallop.
The butter cookie is melt in the mouth with a milk powder taste.
The ginger scone is not overpowered by the ginger, just a hint of it. It tastes very nice with just the rich clotted cream and slightly tangy lemon curd.
Smoked salmon, lemon and dill cream cheese, ikura roe,
Boston lobster roll, confit lemon, chervil,
Iberico ham quiche, mozzarella, black truffle,
Confit duck rillette, foie gras terrine, pickled onions,
and Coronation curried chicken, apple.
Surprisingly my favourite item here turns out to be the plain looking quiche which quite a nice taste of the truffle.
Framboise lychee macaron,
Red cherry rose ball,
Karukera chocolate mirror tart,
Chocolate pralines, and
Unlike the usual macarons with over the top sweetness, the one here is not too sweet with a melt in the mouth texture.
Overall the tea set is quite tasty and pretty looking. The armchair is quite comfy and roomy. Service is not bad with the staffs checking on us from time to time. Remember to check out the unisex restroom before leaving. It has a rather interesting 2-in-1 Dyson tap. Besides being a tap, it's also a dryer.
