TWG's New Fall Themed Afternoon Tea Set
This weekend I was invited by TWG Tea to sample the new Harvest Afternoon tea set created to celebrate the Fall season. It's another option for a Fall themed tea experience completely different from the one I shared with you a month ago at Trump Hotel Vancouver. That tea set, called the "School of Magic Tea Set", is inspired by the Harry Potter franchise and features treats that are reminiscent of some of the magical objects and themes found in the popular children's book. It's the perfect Fall tea set for those who love the Harry Potter franchise and families with children. In contrast, the new Harvest Afternoon Tea Set at TWG is a great choice for those who prefer a more sophisticated theme and food selection - seared fois gras, escargot croquette and salmon gravlax are all on the menu.
The Ultimate Place for the Tea Connoisseur
I also had the opportunity to try several new teas and that is always a highlight of tea time at TWG Tea. I remember the last time I visited, the server told me that they had more than 300 different teas to choose from and on this visit, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the selection has grown to over 500! This is the afternoon tea spot for the tea connoisseur. The tea selection is not only wide but deep. A different grade of the same type of tea with a different quality and price point is not uncommon which makes them one of the few places in the city with the ability to serve a pot of tea with a 3 digit price tag. But don't let that scare you. They have plenty of more approachable "everyday" teas to choose from as well (and most tea sets already include a pot of tea.)
The Harvest Tea Set will be available until early December and will then be replaced with the new Christmas set menus. (I got a sneak peak at the Noel tea collection and it looks so festive. 'm so excited about the holiday season!) I really enjoyed the opportunity to visit TWG again to experience their fine teas, exquisite tea infused foods and macarons, and their top notch service. Until our next tea date.
