This season, TWG Tea has numerous festive offerings to be gifted, enjoyed at their on-site cafe, or simply to indulge by oneself. Here’s a look at what they have to offer.
Disclosure: I was invited to a media event.
12 Days of Christmas Gift Box
TWG Tea’s ultimate festive offering, the 12 Days of Christmas Gift Box, is composed of an enchanting collection of 12 ornament-sized mini 25 gram tea tins filled with TWG’s favourite fine harvest teas and most beloved blends. Enclosed in a gold and ruby-red chest and elegant sleeve, the 12 Days of Christmas Gift Box is an advent calendar in your teacup. On the first day of Christmas, awaken the frosty morning with a spirited cup of Joy of Christmas Tea, a tantalizing mélange of black tea blended with warm spices, rare fruits and malty chocolate. On the days following, discover other classic favourites such as Milky Oolong Tea, White Night Jasmine Tea and Darjeeling Princess Tea. The 12 Days of Christmas Gift box retails at $198 and is available at the TWG Tea Salon and Boutique in Vancouver.
Joy of Christmas Tea
For the season that keeps on giving, TWG Tea also celebrates the blessed time with a limited edition Joy of Christmas Tea as part of TWG Tea’s seasonal Haute Couture Tea Collection. As the fiery yule log crackles in the fire and family and friends gather to celebrate, indulge in a warm and sparkling cup of black tea blended with spiced fruits and velvety chocolate just in time for the joyous festivities. The Joy of Christmas in Haute Couture Tea Collection retails at $48 and is available at the TWG Tea Salon and Boutique in Vancouver.
TWG Tea Festive Set Menu
With the cheers of merriment and chimes of sleigh bells echoing around the fireplace, indulge in the warm flavours of luscious chocolate, succulent fruits and Christmas spices in a tantalizing yuletide feast with TWG Tea this December. Let the festivities begin with a magical cocktail infused with Joy of Christmas Tea or opt for an eggnog-inspired mocktail infused with tea, almond, cinnamon and a sprinkle of cocoa.
For your main course, tuck into a succulent feast of grilled wagyu beef with black truffle and foie gras beef jus, accompanied by charred pears poached in Red Christmas Tea, served with silky mash potato and cabbage braised with veal bacon and chestnut.
For a sweet nightcap, end the festivities with a Joy of Christmas Tea infused yule log, encasing a chocolate hazelnut sponge cake filled with a luscious Joy of Christmas Tea-infused cream mousse accented with vanilla & orange custard and cinnamon Streudel, coated with a milk chocolate glaze. Adorned in joyous colours of red and gold accented with delicate chocolate snowflake and ornament pieces, this unique creation is the perfect topping for any Christmas dinner.
TWG Tea’s full Festive Set Menu is priced at $42 for a main course, tea and dessert. Cocktails or mocktails are available for an additional $16 and $12 each respectively. The Joy of Christmas Tea Yule Log is also available in small or large sizes and is priced at $9.50 and $68 respectively. Available at the TWG Tea Salon & Boutique in Vancouver until December 31, 2017.
