I was invited to the Twinings Singapore Tea Appreciation & Movie Screening at Cathay Platinum Suites to check out their latest Large Leaf Discovery Collection. And I can’t wait to share more about it with you!
Here I am posing with the very adorable Twinings Tea menu in Cathay Platinum Suite’s lounge area. Did you also know that you could order Twinings tea when you go watch a movie there?
These are the selection of Twinings tea available at Cathay Platinum Suites. Be spoilt for choice and select from either their famous Earl Grey Tea, English Breakfast Tea, Pure Peppermint Tea or Pure Chamomile. There are a total of 14 different brews in this latest collection but only 8 will be available in Singapore. And you can only find these new Twinings Teas at selected establishments such as Marina Mandarin Lobby Lounge, Portico Café & Restaurant, Watanabe Coffee, Note Di Sicilia, Redbank, My Little Spanish and I-darts as well as Cathay Platinum Suites.
Before the movie screening, we were treated to a lovely demonstration on mocktails featuring the Twinings Teas. I was amazed by how just by adding some sugar syrup, rose syrup or passion fruit juice, you could turn a simple tea drink into something totally different!
We got to sample the drinks and I loved them all! Wished I had asked for the recipes though. Then maybe I could attempt making my own too
And here we are in the movie suite, the seats are really comfortable! I’ve only been to Gold Class before and theirs were velvet seats. But down here, you practically sink into these plushy leather seat which envelope you in a warm embrace.The whole experience was very satisfying and pampering. I also had a hot cup of Earl Grey Tea to accompany me throughout the movie.
Did you know that Twinings were the first to create the Earl Grey Tea? And that they have more than 300 over years of rich history. Plus, the fact that they are the only tea company to hold the royal warrant which means that they have been proudly supplying tea to every monarch since Queen Victoria in 1837.
Watch out for these exciting new tea flavors:
London Strand Earl Grey – A sunny twist on our original Earl Grey. Black China tea scented with a blend of traditional bergamot with a twist of other citrus notes and real lemon peels.
Golden Tipped English Breakfast – Golden tipped Assam, for a strong and bold depth of flavour and a rounded body.Our Masterblenders sought to create the perfect English Breakfast tea – a blend that is strong and bold yet with a refined, rounded body. A tea that sets you up for the day.
Two-Seasons Darjeeling – Crisp, balanced and floral – a delightful blend of first and second flush Darjeeling harvests.
English Rose Garden – Deep yet delicate China tea with rose petals for a charming floral note. Our Masterblenders thought so, and created a rose-flavour black tea, with a scattering of beautiful rose petals. However hectic your day is proving to be, it will bring a delicious summery pause to your afternoon.
Pure Sencha Green Tea – The fresh and pure flavour of steamed large-leaf green tea. This blend is made from gently steamed large leaves of Chinese green tea. By choosing the best, freshest leaves – those that emerge during the first cool flushes of the Eastern spring – our Masterblenders capture the pure essence of the mountain slopes where the tea grows.
Budding Meadow Camomile – Rich, mellow, camomile with natural sweet notes.The best camomile evokes the essence of a summer meadow: floral, uplifting and with a breezy scent that calms the spirit.
Medley of Mint – The perfect blend of natural spearmint and peppermint for a refreshing, uplifting taste. When refreshment is the order of the day, a minty infusion is the drink of choice. With both Spearmint and Peppermint, our Masterblenders choose the very best mint leaves, from select summer harvests, each time picking just before the mint flowers bloom for maximum taste.
Golden Caramel Rooibos – Caffeine-free, rich Rooibos with a hint of sweet caramel flavour. Rooibos from the Cederberg and Olifantsrivier mountains of South Africa’s Western Cape is delicious in its own right. But our Masterblenders sought a way of enhancing the sun-dried needle’s naturally rich depth of flavour. And they found a delicious one: a hint of caramel flavour.
Now, you may look forward to this new collection of tea, which will come in new packaging with larger bags made out of biodegradable material and longer string so that it does not get lost in your cup of tea.
