Scones from TWG Tea Company

Fen seems to be determined to try every possible scone she can find and having being at Orchard the previous evening, she couldn't resist the temptation to swing by the TWG Tea Salons located at ION Orchard and Takashimaya.

True enough, her scone radar sounded and she picked up a pack of 4 raisins scones for the following day's breakfast. Priced at $14 nett, each scone costs $3.50 and is much cheaper than having them dine-in for a pair of scones served with TWG tea jelly and whipped cream cost $9++.

Having purchased scones from several places, all hotels (so far) provide complementary jam and hotels such as Regent Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore and The Fullerton Hotel provide both clotted cream and jam. I thought this little gesture does make a difference for a tub of clotted cream sold at Cold Storage costs a whopping $9+ and can only be kept in the fridge for 4 days upon opening.

Fen warmed up the scones and having bought Regent Hotel's blackcurrent scones the previous day, we had these with the hotel's leftover clotted cream and jam.

There is a strong buttery fragrance and is comparable to the ones we had from The Fullerton Hotel. Texture-wise, it is much denser but stickier than the humongous one purchased from Raffles Hotel. Depending on individual's preference, this is ecommended for those who prefers their scones to be on the dense and coarse while for both Fen and myself, we would prefer the blackcurrent scones from The Regent Hotel for a stickier and more moist texture.

Cold Storage sells clotted cream?

Hi Xinli,

Yup, we saw it at the Cold Storage at Takashimaya but there is only one brand available.

We didn't buy it as it can only be kept for 4 days upon opening.
