It’s that time when we bring out the lanterns and loosen the belts for the mooncakes. TWG Tea commemorates the Mooncake Festival with the Immortal Moon Tea from the Haute Couture Tea Collection. Housed in a jade-green and gold canister, this tea is a white and green loose leaves that’s infused with soft, ripe berries. While they can be taken on its own, they are a perfect complement to the annual range of mooncakes that TWG Tea has to offer.
Expect tea-infused traditional mooncakes like Blossom, which is a baked crust infused with Bain de Roses Tea and a lychee white lotus paste and the Harvest, which is a Pu-Erh infused white lotus paste and in the middle is a tangy almond and passion fruit purée.
There’s also the tea-infused snowskin mooncakes, for those looking for a contemporary bent. We had the Illumination, a gold leafed exterior that’s wrapped around a white lotus paste with fruity and flowery notes of Immortal Moon Tea. There are crunchy white chocolate pearls and a white chocolate heart filled with mango confit.
We also tried the Pure—a white satin snowskin that boasts an aromatic Matcha-infused white lotus paste. A white chocolate heart that’s filled with Matcha ganache waits in the middle. Quite an unusual profile of lotus paste and matcha.
The Immortal Moon Tea Mooncake Collection is available in a set of two mooncakes paired with Immortal Moon Tea (SGD88) and a set of four mooncakes (SGD78). They are available at all TWG Tea Salons & Boutiques.
