Spring in a drink

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Table Talk -

TWG Tea’s in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the Ja­panese na­tional pas­time of pic­nick­ing un­der cherry blos­soms in bloom takes the form of fra­grant flo­ral tea, pack­aged in bright yel­low and gold. Aptly named Sakura! Sakura! Haute Cou­ture Tea, the bev­er­age pays homage not just to Hanami – the sakura fes­ti­val with ori­gins from the Nara Pe­riod in the 8th cen­tury – but also evokes the rev­elry that comes with the cel­e­bra­tion of the end of win­ter. And as no af­ter­noon tea is com­plete with a sac­cha­rine ac­com­pa­ni­ment, the Sakura! Sakura! Edi­tion in­cludes tea-in­fused mac­arons with a green tea-flavoured and cherry blos­som-per­fumed ganache mid­dle. S$40 for the Sakura! Sakura! Haute Cou­ture Tea and S$12, S$24, and S$48 for a mac­aron gift box of 6, 12 and 24. Avail­able at all TWG Tea out­lets from April on­wards.
