The classic charm and opulent interior furnishings of TWG tea at ION Orchard is easily mistakable for an imported brand. There is no clues or signs that TWG was indeed a Singaporean brand started in 2008. TWG stands for The Wellness Group. It is a luxury concept that incorporates an international distribution network to professionals, unique and original retail outlets and exquisite tea rooms.
Within the glass-walled enclave at the upmarket shopping center, the big tea canisters, exquisite glass, tin or wooden containers and the displays of small tea pots and tea cups attracted many onlookers. I was there for the Saturday brunch with 6 other of my potter friends "descending from the mountain of pottery jungle to the heart of the city" to celebrate another year of good pots making and wood firing.
