Treats at Takashimaya’s Basement Food Hall

I saw many new Japanese eateries and beautifully packaged and tempting gourmet treats. Was most tempted by the TWG store where my favourite tea ‘Tea Party’ was being sold. So glad my cousin picked this tea when we had high tea at Fullerton Bay Hotel. She said it reminded her of Alice in Wonderland. It was S$36 for a can of loose tea leaves. Seemed very expensive but I guess you could have this tea every day for a whole month as it’s quite a large canister. Didn’t get it yet though. Would love to know what your favourite TWG tea is? Or any other brand? I need some recommendations.

More TWG tea in pretty boxes that I would definitely collect. Don’t you just love pretty boxes?

I was shocked to see the price tag on these pretty cups. Beyond a hundred bucks.

The Harrods section was having TWG tea on sale.

And no need for me to lug back bottles of jam when I travel. It seems like you can get anything in Singapore these days. Like this lemon curd.

These Japanese melons look perfect. But would you pay that much for fruit?

Perfect strawberries as well.

Super expensive stuff all around and this new wine bar with exclusive wines. Don’t ask me, because I have no clue.

The Udon here looks good and I like that they sell mini portions at just S$4.

Japanese rice snack that I’ve never tried before either.

I’d rather have real chocolate than the sugar free stuff. Although, the flavours were interesting.

Lots of gourmet treats and just in time for Valentine’s.

  1. omg, don’t buy twg anymore. Do you know it’s a Singapore brand and Singapore doesn’t even grow tea leaves? And when it says since 1837, it means the year that tea was imported into Singapore, and not how long the company has been established. That’s very dishonest to be “1837” on their label.

    Where are their tea leaves grown then? I love their Silver Moon tea. It’s green tea with strawberry.
