TWG launches the world's most luxurious Iced Teabag Collection

My love of teas started 8 years ago, when my sister bought some expensive tea sachets from abroad. I loved how the vanilla/flower notes enveloped the room each time I made myself one.  The smell alone calms me.   Since then I have been buying and collecting teas, locally and or abroad, from loose leaves to flowers to teabags and put labels on them on a glass container. I have acquired the taste and surprised that I could distinguish one from another. From white to red, black, green and blue tea, yes there is a blue tea. I have loved them hot or cold without sugar. Surprisingly, my love of tea had some good effects on my health because of its antioxidant power, I lost considerable amount of weight which is good and had cut on sugar bingeing, my cravings for pork, sodas and artificial juices stopped and I managed to maintain the right weight for my height.  The tea thing works for me.  My skin cleared up too and discovered that my wounds healed faster with them. It has countless benefits  and If I have to calm myself with all the stress , one sachet of chamomile tea or lemon greentea would do.

I got the first taste of TWG teas at TWG Salon tea in Abu Dhabi Mall. I love the store interior and how the teas were lined up in colored tin cans. It was sort of library of teas from outside and the smell coming from the steeped teas alone were inviting. TWG is the high end of teas, the finest teas of the world.  This is one of my favorite brand, it does not come cheap,  but you get what you paid for.

TWG recently launched its most luxurious collection of 15 teabags especially crafted for the preparation of iced teas last May 21 at TWG, Tea Salon and Boutique, BHS. The tea salon offered all kinds of teas to the guests, from hot to cold. The place smelled of sweet vanilla notes, apples, and strawberries. It was indeed a haven of teas. I ordered french earl grey and had a cup of jasmine ice cream. The teas compliment their macarons.

The iced tea collection comes in fifteen varieties of whole tea leaves carefully proportioned and packaged for the expert preparation of delicious TWG iced

Luxuriously handcrafted with natural materials, every TWG Tea Iced Teabag contains the exact same handpicked, whole leaf teas retailed loose at TWG Tea Boutiques. The teabags are entirely hand sewn and are free from metal staples and glue which are detrimental to the quality and flavour of the tea. Made of light transparent silk and round in shape, reminiscent of the summer sun, TWG Iced Teabags are all handsewn and placed in TWG Tea packaging embossed with the name of the tea in gold lettering.

Each of the fifteen keepsake gift boxes enclose seven precious Iced Teabags, each containing 7.5 grams of tea perfect for a large carafe of iced tea.  TWG Tea has spared no expense in creating the ultimate iced teabag, demonstrating its deep-rooted commitment to quality and attention to detail.
