I was in a mood for tea break, so I walk over Pavilion and want to have a look at this newly open luxury tea cafe, TWG, from Singapore.
I was very excited actually, as I always love tea and I missed out my chance to try it during my previous trip in Singapore.
Then I was quite upset when I met up one of the staff in the tea boutique. I think I am too sensitive but what the staff did really spoiled my mood. However, I still went on with my plan and ask for a single seat in the cafe.
1837 TEa Set RM26.90++
As I am going alone, I only ordered one 1837 Tea set, which I think will be sufficient for me as it comes with 2 scones or 1 muffin or 1 pastry and a pot of tea (select from tea menu).
The very friendly waiter was not familiar with their menu yet, he made me confuse about the tea set selection, he told me I can get scones AND muffin AND PASTRY with the set I chose. @.@" But it is ok, it is a new shop, they need more training I guess. He suggested "Silvermoon" tea to me and I took his suggestion. Silvermoon is a korean green tea with strawberry and vanilla flavor (what he told me).
scone with tea jelly
The scones come with cream and tea jelly, the tea jelly taste really special and match the scones very well. I finished up one and a half scones on my own.
These are the cakes that they display near the entrance of the tea boutique. I was snapping this photo when the waitress is talking to another customer, and she turned around and told me that I am not supposed to take picture of the cakes. I felt embarrassing so I apologized and kept my phone (ya I was taking photo with my iphone) but I saw she showed a kind of face expression that I thought is kinda impolite when she turn back to the person she was talking to. I thought I was thinking too much, too sensitive, but that still made me feel bad. The cakes are beautiful so I snap a photo with my iphone without asking permission (they didn't put any signboard that mentioned we are not allow to snap photo anyway), but she should just remind me about it, not making face behind my back. Maybe she is making face on another topic, not about me, but yea, I misunderstood already, and i was very unhappy.
However, the tea is really good, and I love the scones too, it made up my afternoon. I also bought a pack of tea leaf home so that I can enjoy the tea at home without ppl hurting my little sensitive heart. =p
Just sharing my two cent, I personally think that every staff should assume that anyone who walk in their shop area is a potential customer.
