TWG Tea’s Mother’s Day Set, $38 each
For a heartfelt meal with mom, take her to TWG Tea.

Part of the Mother’s Day Set Menu, mains are paired with Breakfast Queen Tea, a vivacious green tea blend with hints of sweet lemon and rose, and finished with a dessert of Almond Sponge Cake lavishly laced with vanilla and Magic Moment Tea-infused cream, dolloped with apricot confit and Vanilla Bourbon Tea ice cream.
