To kick off the holiday season, we were invited to The Urban Tea Merchant to try out their Holiday Tea Service.
Since our last visit for the Moon Festival Tea Service, the décor changed up a bit to bring in the festive season. It's always a feast for the sensory receptors just to look at and smell the different teas in their lovely packaging.
To start, we were served tea-infused champagne cocktails along with petit choux and tea-infused butter. The cocktails were refreshing and bubbly, with a nice touch of tea. I really love the butter and could just eat that along with the choux and call it a day.
The tea service came in a traditional three-tier tea server, filled generously with savouries and sweets. We were also served two TWG teas -- "Red Christmas" and "White Christmas". I'm actually not huge on rooibos teas, but I found the Red Christmas tea to be delightful with pleasant spices highlighting the red bush tea. The White Christmas with silver needle tea leaves was much lighter and topped off with aromatics.
