TWG Follow Me Tea
A beckoning blend of the finest harvest green tea and rare ginseng root is crowned with alluring and unforgettable notes of succulent royal pineapple. An exceptional tea to pursue to the ends of the earth.
Selection of Four Types of Special Dim Sum
Mantao BBQ Duck with shredded Cucumber Spring Onion, Chinese Five Spice Chicken Sandwich, Fried Char Siew Bun
Love the chinese five spice chicken sandwich and the mantao BBQ duck. The mantao was soft and the sandwich was tasty. The fried char siew bun was a little bit too salty. I prefer sweet for char siew.
Macau Egg Tart, Matcha Latte Layered Sponge, Scones
Couldn’t stop eating the macau egg tart, even though it’s too eggy. The matcha latte layered sponge was the winner! Not too sweet, but it’s delish for sweet-tooth. Love the cream and jelly for the scones. Fantastic.
Selection of Macaroon Gold & Charcoal – Red Velvet – Vanilla, Glutinous Red Bean Rice Ball, Bitter Orange Verrine
Bitter Orange Verrine stole my attention. It’s a fluffy texture with unique taste. Didn’t really fond of the glutinous red bean rice ball, but the macaroons were amazingly delicious.
Thanks The Writer’s Bar and Raffles Jakarta for the beautiful and delicious Chinese-themed high tea.
