Coffee or tea? If you're a fan of the latter, you'll be happy to know that there's finally a place in Hong Kong dedicated to tea fanatics, and it's none other than the glamourous TWG Tea Salon and Boutique in ifc mall.
TWG Tea first launched in Singapore in 2007 and is known for having the largest collection of teas in the world. Their teas are sourced directly and often exclusively from premium plantations from every tea-producing country in the world including Persia, Turkey and even Georgia.
"We believe that our customers in Hong Kong, with their rich tea culture and refined palates, will appreciate our extensive range of teas from all over the globe,” said Taha Bouqdib, president of TWG Tea.
As you can expect, everything inside the TWG Tea Salon and Boutique revolves around tea, from the tea-infused dishes like the summer quiche and mixed greens tossed in 1837 green tea infused vinaigrette to Singapore breakfast tea ice cream and tea-infused macarons and pastries.
The space is an elegant 1,800 square foot (167 square metre) area with hand-crafted glass walls, bronze fittings, Italian marble floors, crystal lamps and antique mirrors that offers the perfect backdrop for tea parties.
The TWG boutique also boasts a huge collection of loose and packaged teas along with tea accessories, pastries and chocolates so you can continue the fancy tea experience at home.
