A Fuel for all CPA’s – undiluted caffeine

Little over a year ago now, while onboard a Singapore Airlines flight bound for Auckland, I was offered a selection of teas from the world of TWG Tea. What I did not realise, was how much I would fall in love with them...

...Now, firmly hooked on being dubbed a ‘tea snob’ – I prefer to only drink TWG Tea. Established in Singapore in celebration of the islands great history as a trading post for fine tea; they really are, the finest luxury tea brand in the world. Paul Beare of UK Accounting firm Kevin Beare & co

A true Brit does enjoy tea with milk, and occasionally sugar to taste, however – I have switched sides, and now prefer my tea black. Actually, at present the 1837 Black Tea is “one’s favourite”! However, that is just personal preference. The Singapore Breakfast, Kenilworth, and of course, the incredibly refined French Early Grey are all great tasters from TWG Tea’s vast selection. 

If you appreciate tea, and fancy indulging in the most premier tea supplier to some of the world’s finest hotels and restaurants along with international airlines, then give in to your temptation, and enter the emporium of TWG Tea.

These are not cheap drinks at around 70pence per bag, but the high price compares favourably with the cost of say, a beer or a soda. You pay for what you get, and with TWG Tea, quality is always there.

TWG Tea has a concession in New York at Dean & DeLuca, 1150 Madison Ave, NY 10028 or here in London at Harrods, 87-135 Brompton Road, Kensington, London SW3 1. And of course, Tea Salon & Boutique’s in Singapore should you be stopping over too!
