Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

TWG (again and again)

10.08.13: Tea-b-Tea

Hello, dolls! 🙂 It’s #tbt time, the time when the universe makes it acceptable for me to post entries that are 3 months overdue. This week, I feel like I have time on my hands. Though, I must admit, it is not how I want it to be. My face is still swollen and I am saving Manila from seeing another jeje-face so I am locking myself up in this room until my face gets visibly better. (#MaarteGirlProblems).

I am milk “tea” lover, I love it so much that during my first 13 months in the US, I would die every time A would get me a milk tea (or should I say 2 large taro milk teas!). I never appreciated drinking hot tea alone, until we had afternoon tea with his Mom. For the past years, I would always try to add sugar, honey, or milk on mine. Up to the point that it loses its original flavor already (yikes). So yeah, that afternoon made me fall in love with tea all over again.

A introduced me to afternoon/high tea, and I introduced him to…. TWG ❤

Before I move forward, let me share with you my previous posts about TWG..

I have not published our TWG experience in Hong Kong yet…just because. But yeah, after this TWG date with him, I added another item on my bucket list.

…to try to go to all of the TWG branches in the world. (Try only! hahaha)

A got really jealous when I went to TWG with Alyza. So I promised him that I will bring him there during his 3 week vacay here in the Philippines.

I love how everything has the TWG logo on it.

It makes tea lovers feel exclusive and more appreciative of the place 🙂

I always try a different flavor when in a nice place like TWG. The exciting thought of tasting something new 🙂
