A CROWN OF SWEET GLORY
Adding a contemporary twist to the time-honoured tradition, usher in the New Year and celebrate the Epiphany (twelve day of Christmas) with TWG Tea’s latest renditions of the French King’s Cake, also known as Galette des Rois.
Enjoy the classic version of this flaky puff pastry delicately filled with layers of frangipane and a sweet almond cream infused with Almond Tea, a black tea blended with fresh almonds which gives it a nutty profile. Green tea lovers can try a Matcha-infused take on this buttery frangipane-filled pastry, featuring a Japanese green tea with a smooth and grassy taste which finishes with a hint of sweetness.
Pair your choice with a majestic black tea blend of Breakfast King Tea that exquisitely complements the nutty and sweet flavour of the King’s Cake – a magnificent way to kick-start the year!
Keeping in line with the French tradition, a coveted token of a whole almond is concealed in the King’s Cake. The lucky diner who finds the almond will be crowned the “King” or “Queen” of the day and bestowed with a crown of sweet glory.
The TWG Tea King’s Cake is available from 2 to 31 January 2022 at all TWG Tea Salons in Singapore.
