I decided to give TWG Tea Macarons a try and popped over to the Takashimaya outlet and got 6 macarons as I am on a macarons adventure. Though not much of a macarons fan, mainly due to my cravings.
But certainly, I am a huge fan of TWG Tea Scones. I have tried many of their pastries, till date I have not found any to my liking. What about the macarons.
Bake Quality of TWG Tea Macarons
First, I examined the TWG Tea Macaron looks. It wasn’t well bake.
Most of the TWG Tea Macarons feet is detaching from the shell.
TWG Tea Macarons Taste and Texture
The TWG Tea Macarons weren’t too sweet. Personally, it was at a perfect level for me. Some of the flavours were pretty outstanding and it has a great oomph factor.
As for the texture, somehow the macaron biscuits were a little too soft and airy. When my teeth sink into the biscuit, immediately, it collapses. It was far too soft with chewy interior totally absent. At the minimum, there was a slight crisp factor on the egg shell crust.
TWG Tea Macarons Flavours
I tried 6 flavours. There were some outstanding one that impresses me while one that turned me off totally.
Grand Wedding Tea, Passion Fruit & Coconut
The photo of this macarons is on the second from the top, the purple one. It has a refreshing tangy passionfruit flavour. I was amazed with the coconut added, the flavour was enhanced and it really increases the level of enjoyment.
Vanilla Bourbon Tea & Kaya
Kaya hint on vanilla flavour. A nice Asian infused flavour.
It has a strong Matcha fragrance. Great for Matcha fans.
Bain de Roses Tea
A nice strong and sweet rose fragance was emitted.
Moroccan Mint Tea
Minty flavour with a hint of tea. Great for those who loves mint.
Limited Edition – Red Balloon, Tea & Blackberry
I have forgotten to take an individual photo this limited edition macaron. The shell is in bright chilli red colour. The cream has a core of Blackberry surrounded with some whitish cream. It is a pity that the blackberry reminded me of cough syrup. This certainly turned me off totally.
Despite the flaw bake of the macaron biscuits, TWG has some interesting flavours that wow me too. At the same token, there was also one that disappoint. For the flavours, it is still worth trying.
NAHMJ Favourite Flavours
Flavours-wise, the Grand Wedding Tea, Passion Fruit & Coconut and the Bain de Roses Tea wowed me.
