When you think of TWG, the first thing that comes to mind is tea, obviously. But you’ll be surprised how interesting their menu is. Located right in the middle of Mall of Qatar’s luxury court, there’s a colourful, open dining space, very elegantly decorated with a big focus on tea.

Wood shades with white accents are dominant, and all the colour is from the tea displays. They have 470 different types, and this is slightly worrying – how are we going to pick one?

Everything on their menu is French-Mediterranean inspired and, the best part, all the food and desserts are infused with tea. They send out tea bread with a small bowl of butter topped with Japanese tea and crispy rice – it’s crunchy and absolutely delicious. The lobster avocado timbale is a great salad to start with – the flavours are delicate and refreshing with a hint of pungency from the onion. The peanut chicken with green curry is their best-seller. The 200-day grain-fed wagyu sirloin steak is done just the way we like and the quality is surprisingly excellent.

The salad is drizzled with green tea-infused vinaigrette. The truffle croque is decent, but nothing spectacular for the price.

After smelling a dozen different teas (our noses are twitching now) and listening to pearls of wisdom from the tea sommelier, we settle on two of their exquisite blends.

Harlequin has a funky scent and it consists of black tea with marigold (you can actually see the dried flower petals in the tea leaves). Crème Brûlée is lighter and has a mildly sweetish flavour owing to the tiny pieces of candied strawberries in it. The tea-infused desserts, in the dessert trolley, are must-tries, too.

The experience is exciting. We have to come back here – especially because we have 468 types of tea left to taste.
