miss b loves .........TWG Tea Salon and Boutique, Dubai.

   
                                     
TWG Tea Salon and Boutique is a tea-lover's paradise! We discovered it during a shopping trip in Dubai Mall next to The Waterfall..... 




Established in Singapore, they now have a number of branches including one in the Harrods store, London and I can never resist a good cup of tea.......




However, this is much more than a tea room.........There are sweet and savoury dishes all flavoured with ......yes, tea....... including salads with tea-infused vinaigrette! We opted for the set menu which was excellent value......



Alexandria tea infused John Dory

Baked apple in vanilla
 and Earl Grey infused sauce

We both agreed that this was one of the best meals we have had recently......fresh ingredients and subtle flavours (with no overpowering tea flavour at all)..........and the price included either a hot Red of Arabia Tea or my choice...a refreshing Iced Fruit Mountain Tea..........



Our knowledgeable waitress was so helpful and professional, not to mention patient as we took some time reading through the vast range of teas.........



Of course how could we leave without trying the speciality macarons..........



On the left..... Grand Wedding Tea, Passion Fruit and  Coconut and on the right Napoleon Tea and Caramel........amazing flavours! 

Finally a quick tour of the tea boutique.......


So many teas!
Perfect gifts

.......tea scented candles, tea infused chocolates and the most beautiful teapots...........




A packet of tea to take home...........



and we'll have to return again and again.....



.......as there are so many more macarons to try......





.....Bain de Rose Tea, Earl Grey and Chocolate, 1837 Black Tea and Blackcurrant, Moroccan Mint Tea.................

  7. Bonjour miss b. I love this place. Tea-flavored food and drinks throughout. How fun! That dessert pear and the iced tea look very tempting to me. I may even try a macaron (even though I am not a macaron lover...) You do get around, don't you? :-) I am afraid the food displayed on my blog this week is not as... appealing or tasty, alas!

  8. Gorgeous pictures. Just looking at them makes me hungry. Looks like a very delicious meal that I would like to try some day. It would be very hard to choose from the huge selection of TWG teas. Then the Macarons are to die for! :)

  16. love the tea canisters. they would be great as storage containers after- very pretty all in a row in different colours. too cute!

  17. Those tea canisters at the top are so pretty! Such a pretty post and perfect for the cold day we are having. I've tried to drink more tea and less coffee when I crave a warm beverage.

  18. Looks so tasty! I've tried the teas when I was in Singapore but not the food. I obviously missed out.

  19. That's such a coincidence..I happened to be at the Dubai Mall yesterday morning and we came across this exact place. I remember pausing outside of it, trying to convince my husband to enjoy tea there (with no luck) but I made a vow to go back there one day. Great and stylish, as you have captured it.

  20. I'd like to visit Dubai just to visit this place alone! Everything looks so yummy and colourful!

  21. Oh this looks and sounds wonderful. My kind of place. So glad that you shared this with us. xo/Maidson

  22. What a cool place. OMG my daughter and I would have a ball in here!! I am currently on the search for a tea that doesn't interact with Coumadin. It's been a challenge. Locally, I love Teavana - they seem to have the best quality teas around here. xo

  25. Really nice place, I would drive myself crazy there, I'm a huge fan of flavoured teas, and also the macarrons look tasteful. Ps I'm reading too much about Dubai Lately that I'm diying to go there.

  30. Any tea salon is pretty much my idea of heaven, but this one sounds - and looks - like it's on a completely different level. The rows of colourful macarons had me at hello. You really do know the loveliest places in Dubai, I hope I'll have a chance to visit one day and try them all!

    1. I shall contact you with some suggestions. There are many good ones. I like the tea room/café in the Liberty store and I enjoyed an excellent modern afternoon tea at Bea's of Bloomsbury.

  42. I'm a total tea aficionado so this place sounds perfect. Their tea infused savories and sweets look delectable! I feel like I need to stop into Harney & Sons for a spot of afternoon tea now :)
