Summer is in full swing with TWG Tea’s new limited-edition green tea blends, Green of Fujian Tea and Sencha Matcha, and the Secret of Siam Tea Set featuring a sensational selection of tea-infused savouries and patisseries served in grand Thai-style.
Green of Fujian Tea
Embark on a summer of splendour with the refreshing Green of Fujian Tea, a blend of exceptional green teas from a remote garden on the celebrated Tai Mu Mountain of Fu Ding in Fujian Province. Fujian, auspiciously known as “happy establishments”, also symbolises an abundance of success and prosperity in the Year of the Ox.
Boasting precious, downy and pale-green leaves with a delicate infusion, this limited-edition mélange is buttery with natural hints of honey and night blooming jasmine. Rich in tea polyphenols and vitamin C, the infusion yields notes of wild woodland berries with a zesty aftertaste of cedarwood – a tea that offers balm for body and soul this summer. The Green of Fujian Tea retails at 1,490 THB at all TWG Tea Salons & Boutiques in Bangkok.
The best of Japanese green tea blended into a cup of purity, this limited-edition Sencha Matcha is composed of Kyushu Island sencha and matcha from Shizuoka Prefecture – the newest addition to TWG Tea Cotton Teabag Collection.
Grown in celebrated mineral-rich volcanic ash, beautifully crafted leaves of sencha metamorphose into a smooth and silky cup. Matcha completes this blend, providing strength and complexity. An inimitable reinterpretation of a traditional Japanese blend.
Rich in zinc, vitamin C, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, the delicate, grassy infusion is perfect to revel in the warm summer days. Sencha Matcha in the TWG Tea Cotton Teabag Collection retails at 970 THB at all TWG Tea Salons & Boutiques in Bangkok.
