When evening falls and the halo of the moon shadows over towering skyscrapers, a delicate lotus flower sways gently to the ebb and flow of the autumn tide. A new blossom inspires the starry night sky, marking the arrival of a luscious harvest. This year, TWG Tea narrates the story of the constellation with the Lotus Jade Tea Mooncake Collection, a rich and enduring assortment of patisseries set to inspire and intrigue any epicurean this mid-autumn festival.
Celebrating age old traditions where tea was once served to accompany sweets, the Lotus Jade Tea in Haute Couture Tea Collection® blooms in brilliant hues of green and gold, a fresh new beginning for a joyous occasion. A tender green tea with lotus blossoms, the exquisite cup yields a thick, heady and decadent aroma that lingers long on the palate. An extraordinary tea perfectly paired with TWG Tea’s curated selection of tea-infused mooncakes.
Indulge in new creations such as the decadent Daydream mooncake, a magical flight of the imagination wrapped in a perfectly baked bold red crust, with blueberries, white lotus paste, and a unique almond and blueberry purée heart infused with Red Balloon Tea. For the cherry on top, savour the unique Cerise mooncake which boasts a luxurious white chocolate and crunchy coconut heart with Amarena cherry surrounded by a brown lotus paste infused with Pu-erh 2000.
Beckoning a new dawn, the Moonlight mooncake glows in a luscious jade green snowskin, featuring a Lotus Jade Tea infused mousseline and a white chocolate heart filled with a sweet Nashi pear marmalade. Emanating the warm glow of a lantern, the Blossom mooncake in brilliant orange conceals a Geisha Blossom Tea infused mousseline contrasted by tangy apricot marmalade encased in a white chocolate heart.
