For those who prefer tea than coffee, TWG Tea, sits on the top of our mind. The finest luxury tea brand in the world was established in Singapore and celebrates the year 1837 when the island became a trading post for teas, spices and fine epicurean products. TWG Tea, which stands for The Wellbeing Group, was founded by Taha Bouqdib, Maranda Barnes and Rith Aum-Stievenard in 2008 as a luxury concept that incorporates unique and original retail outlets, exquisite tea rooms and an international distribution network to professionals.
Committed to offering teas directly from source gardens, TWG Tea’s collection is the largest in the world, with fine harvests from every tea producing country and exclusive hand-crafted tea blends. Internationally recognised as a true innovator with the creation of new varieties of tea every season in collaboration with the world’s most renowned estates, TWG Tea also offers exquisite signature modern tea accessories and delicate tea-infused sweets and savouries.
LOCATE TWG TEA AROUND THE WORLD
After launching its first Singapore tea salon & boutique at Republic Plaza in 2008, TWG Tea has opened in iconic destinations such as ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Singapore. Expanding its presence internationally, TWG Tea has heralded the opening of exquisite Tea Salons & Boutiques in Bangkok, Dubai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Tokyo, Manila, Jakarta and Shanghai. In addition, TWG Tea’s exclusive collection of the finest teas of the world is available from TWG Tea Boutiques in Harrods Knightsbridge, London and Dean & DeLuca Madison Ave, New York.
The premier tea supplier to the finest hotels, restaurants and international airlines, TWG Tea is retailed around the world in gourmet épiceries, including El Corte Ingles in Portugal, Feinkost Kaefer in Germany, David Jones in Australia and GUM in Moscow, Russia, and served in Business Class, First Class and Suites and in the Lounges of Singapore Airlines and Nippon Airways.
THE TWG TEA COLLECTION
TWG Tea’s collection – the largest in the world – numbers well over 800 different single-estate, fine harvests and exclusive tea blends from all of the tea-producing countries. Committed to offering teas directly from source gardens, TWG Tea understands the evolving tastes of the modern tea drinker, and has developed special varieties in collaboration with the most renowned tea estates.
TWG Tea also offers limited edition teas and seasonal blends, and is constantly sourcing, innovating, expanding and refining the teas in its collection. Established at the epicentre of the world’s tea-producing region, TWG Tea tasters assiduously ensure that their selection is always of the very highest quality, to maintain the consistency and freshness of each harvest.
TWG Tea’s loose leaf teas are sold by weight, starting at 50 grams. A limited variety of single estate and special blends are also available in hand-sewn, 100% cotton teabags which are individually packaged and sold in boxes of 15. Unlike paper teabags, cotton teabags do not absorb the flavour of the tea, thereby allowing the full fragrance of each tea to develop.
