A sort of food post: The TWG Tea Salon & Boutique in Greenbelt 3

Tea time at the TWG Tea Salon

I say sort of food post because it was mostly just three girls wanting to meet in the middle of their workday and finding themselves in the same vicinity for once. Sarah, Anna and I went to have tea two weeks ago and catch up in a very grown up feeling venue, and we all agreed that we’ve been curious about the tea salon since it opened. I had seen the same establishment in a trip to Singapore and didn’t have the time to go, Anna passed by it a lot in trips to Greenbelt, and Sarah sees it often as it’s a hop, skip and jump away from her work.

We had the “Chic Set” which according to Munchpunch is:

TWG Tea from their extensive tea list, served hot or iced. A petite selection of three finger sandwiches – Vegetarian Set, Royal, Set, Imperial Set. Choice of 2 freshly baked scones or muffins served with TWG Tea jelly and whipped cream or 1 patisserie from their trolley.

We had the Royal set, as the Imperial one had foie gras, and Sarah told us of a friend fiercely against it. We didn’t feel like the vegetarian set as we wanted a little protein (well I did, I forgot to have lunch).

It was nice. It felt very civilized, and while we talked about not so civilized things sometimes (wedding stuff, bachelorette things), we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We ordered a fruity, light tea that I forgot the name of (it was recommended by the waiter since we looked so overwhelmed at the 400 tea menu) that went great with the teeny salmon and kani sandwiches and the scones.

Would I go back? Yes, but with like minded ladies and a semi-full tummy, as it’s not really the place for the ravenous, as everyone is sort of dressed up and civilized. I can’t imagine digging into a full meal not caring about the horrified stares of ladies who lunch in the next table. If you want relaxed, grown up conversations, and really good tea, try it. Maybe I’ll bring Mom there soon. 🙂
