It's the time of the year again when moon goddess Chang Er and her celestial bunnies are bouncing off jade pagodas and icy lakes from all that sugar high. Ah the mid-autumn festival. Seeing the lit lanterns and tasting a dozen boxes of mooncakes is a sure sign to the red fat man and his little helpers to prepare for that upcoming moost wonderful time of the year.
Tea is the beverage of choice when enjoying mooncakes and what's even better is when tea is incorporated directly into the mooncakes for a clever winning combination. The InterContinental Singapore's Man Fu Yuan unveils its new Snowskin Tea Collection ($66 for a box of 4 pieces) with tea-infused flavours like the heady Early Grey & Baileys Truffle with White Lotus Paste, fragrant Oolong & Black Sesame Paste, floral Rose & Pistachio with White Lotus Paste, and my favourite Japanese Matcha. Love the latter's prominent green tea flavour with a pleasant slight hint of bitterness!
All the above mooncakes are available at the respective hotels until 27 September.
Happy Mid Autumn Festival!
Chew On This: Mooncakes are pretty high in cow-lories so do share them around with friends and loved ones to even out the damage! Moohehe.
