TWG "A cup of tea is a cup of peace."
~Sen Sōshitsu XVI, 16th tea master of the Urasenke family

We finally have TWG Tea Salons in Manila. Those mostly yellow cans on the walls, reflected on the large mirrors of the dining area, are just a few of the more-than-a-thousand tea varieties available at the shops. To be honest, I find the food too expensive (though I've finally satisfied my curiosity about scones), but I'm just very happy that I finally have a place to go to for some good loose leaf tea. And as long as one doesn't buy their fancy cans, the cost of TWG's teas won't break the bank.

Tea and scones are surely a welcome combination.

scones with lemon curd and some sweet cream can go with either tea or coffee. idk this brand of tea.

I never could develop a taste for tea. But scones, however... yum! Any time!

I am staggered by the vast amount of tea varieties. I was listening to an interview with a tea taster last week and he said that some days he tastes up to 1000 different varieties! Thanks for the visit to my blog.

Hello Hilda. Thank you for visiting my blog.
It's nice you've found a favourite Tea House. There are so many kinds of tea available these days, it's a good idea to do your taste testing in this way.
Cheerio for now :D)
