There is a place for tea connoisseurs in Kuala Lumpur, right in the middle of the luxury mall Pavilion KL. TWG Tea Salon and Boutique is on a mission to spread the art of tea drinking to the masses – and it’s doing it in style. The golden hues of the décor exudes a glamourous aura, but stepping inside this small salon will remind you of the olden days of British tea trading in Southeast Asia – big yellow tins containing their specially-blended loose leaf teas line the shelves and as you enter the dining area, you’ll notice that it is elegantly decorated with classic wooden rattan chairs and white tablecloths.
The choice of teas here is amazing – with a staggering amount of over 800 teas to choose from, so there is something (or maybe more!) for everyone. With names like Pink Flamingo (green tea with a blend of hibiscus) and Eternal Summer (red herbal tea), it will certainly pique one’s curiosity, and as descriptions of the teas are not included in the list, ask for details and recommendations from any of their servers and they will be happy to help you make a decision. Brewed teas are served in 18K gold-plated teapots with white porcelain wide cups and saucers; enough create a sense of exclusivity for sippers.
