TWG's new tea line is the most luxurious solution to the summer heat
Will the new flavors beat our love for Eternal Summer?
(SPOT.ph) TWG's Eternal Summer, perhaps the luxury tea brand's most popular iced tea blend, is a formidable opponent. Not just for the heat, but even for the rest of the iced teabag line. That position may just be shaken up, however, with the company's six new flavors that completes a 15-strong collection of meticulously handcrafted teabags.
Every flavor from TWG's Iced Teabag Collection is in a gorgeous (and gift-ready!) keepsake chest-like box with gilded embossed details and seven Iced Teabags. Each bag—which is in TWG's signature silk so as not to compromise the taste of the leaves—contains 7.5 grams of tea, enough to make a liter. A box is P2,595.
The tip to brewing the perfect iced tea is to put the teabag in a pot, add a half liter of water, steep for five minutes, pour into a pitcher or carafe, and add ice. Make it even more refreshng with some sugar syrup. (That's a tip we learned from TWG Singapore's Louise Benzrihem back when the company first opened in Greenbelt in 2012. Don't be afraid to put syrup in there.)
Apart from Eternal Summer, some of the other available flavors for the Iced Teabag Collection include: Cocktail Hour (a black and green mix which is a little heady in flavor), Moroccan Mint (a blash of freshness), Sweet France (floral and soothing), Darjeeling (classic and lightly sweet), Alfonso (slightly fruity), Caravan (green tea with hints of citrus), Tea Party (candy-sweet and fun), Pink Flamingo (another favorite!), Grand Jasmine (an elegant note on green tea), Pomme Prestige (a tangy black), Red Chai (very aromatic), 1837 Green (floral with a bit of bite at the end), French Earl Gray, and 1837 Black (another classic that has just the right sweetness).
TWG has branches at Newport Mall, Pasay City; Shangri-La Plaza East Wing, Mandaluyong City; Greenbelt 5, Makati City; Power Plant Mall, Makati City; and Central Square, Bonifacio Global City.
