Breakfast, All Day Dining, Desserts, and Tea Sets are offered. We were lucky to be seated because the long queue was seen externally. Along the path from the entrance to our seats, we could see the finest tea are packed in colorful metal tin with all kind of sizes.The exquisite decoration and comfortable seating made this a great place to have tea-session with friends and family. However, I had experienced mosquitoes bites while I enjoyed my croissant.
It's difficult to choose the beverage from the long, extensive range of teas from different countries, different flavors and different types of tea, The service was quite slow as we had waited for almost 30-45 minutes to have our food and tea to be served. I guessed this kind of pace was intended for the riches or for us to enjoy the surrounding, tea with premium price and delicacies.
TWG Tea Macarons (RM5 for each) range from different flavors including Napoleon Tea &Caramel, Camelot Tea & Praline, Earl Grey & Chocolate, 1837 Black Tea & Blackcurrant, Moroccan Mint and Lemon Bush Tea,
We had chosen the set of French pastries (chocolate croissant with TWG Tea jelly and whipped cream). We had also ordered one pot of Earl Grey d'Amour ( RM19 per pot). We used to know about Chinese traditional pu-er and jasmine tea, hence we decided to try some sips of Earl Grey tea. A light and aromatic blend black tea had been lovingly infused with delicate TWG Tea bergamot, wild flowers and luscious white tea. TWG home made jelly was a good match for the sweet chocolate croissant. By the way, we were disappointed that the tea was not refillable as RM19 per pot of tea was able to fill up each cup for three times only.
That's the end of my blog post regarding my first visit and first luxurious high-tea session. :)
The next destination: Crazy Potato which is next to Bread Story. We had chosen the set of potato fries (sour cremio flavor) to fill up the emptiness of our stomachs before shopping spree started.
