Tea For Two: Our Favorite Places To Spend High Tea Afternoons With Mom


Sometimes, all we need is a little heart-to-heart session with our mothers. And what better day to spend an afternoon with her than with tea and delectable snacks? Thankfully, two of our favorite high tea locations have some special offerings for the month of May:

A Mother’s Day Treat at TWG

Pamper you mom to a treat with one of the country’s best tea salons, TWG. Their special menu for the month begins with a a cocktail made with Moroccan Mint Tea, Gnawa Tea, yuzu juice, rum and fresh mint and a fresh vegetable starter infused with Napoleon Tea. Afterwards, you will be served a deliciously poached seabass on a bed of romaine lettuce in a kombu broth, accompanied with a nice warm cup of Jasmine Queen Tea. Last but definitely not the least is dessert—their sweet strawberry mousse crowned with Love Me Tea-infused Chantilly cream. It will surely be an afternoon to remember.

TWG Tea’s Mother’s Day Set Menu is available exclusively from May 6-9, 2018 at all TWG Tea Salon and Boutiques, at P1550 for a cocktail, starter, main course, tea and dessert.

Chocolate and High Tea Afternoons at the Manila Hotel

High tea afternoons at the renowned Manila Hotel have just recently gotten an upgrade, thanks to a collaboration with Cebu’s chocolate queen herself, Raquel Choa. Known for elevating the status of the country’s tablea, Raquel has worked with the hotel to create a luxurious menu that consists of favorites that hit home—from bibingka and kesong puti sandwiches to the hotel’s signature chocolate tarts. After all, we do know that chocolate and tea go exceptionally well together.
