Steaped Tea Review


I have been a Tea enthusiast for as long as I could remember in search for a tea which suites my taste. The process is a real painful, expensive and somewhat tiresome as I have traveled as far as Taiwan for Tie Guan Yin, Singapore for another.


Thing with tea leaves is, it could smell nice, feel and look nice but you could never taste them at the shop except some Chinese tea leaves. It could taste really different from your expectation. Very seldom do you see a modern fusion tea shop selling it served hot. So you need to buy a big pack, dump to someone else or chuck the whole when you find it not suited to your taste.


This is where Steaped Tea comes in. Selling their vast varieties of teas, fusion teas which come from their creative mix.


What's best is you could get a cup of fresh brewed tea of your selection for an affordable price. With the large selection, there would of course one which would suit your individual taste.


Their open shelf allows you to see, touch and smell the samples so you could select and have it brewed for you.


Some blend are downright new never seen before in the market and you would be surprised that they are pleasant to the palate.


Heard of artificial flavoring nightmares in teas? From the open shelf, you would be able to see that Steaped Tea is selling an all natural ingredients for their tea.


Assorted Hot and Cold drinks you could get on the spot


Cold on the go from left, Butterfly Lemonade, Hibiscus Mo-tea-to and Iced Matcha


My very own Butterfly Lemonade. Highly refreshing for those who needs a boost


My personal favourite on a cold rainy day, the hot Lychee Tea. The longer it's steeped in, the stronger the aroma and taste while keeping me warm.


Tempted to get more of the tea you have just drank? Buy the loose tea and brew em yourself. They also sell tea wares for your personal brewing

There are currently 2 branches:
- Pavilion Mall KL, Level 6 - P6.06.00

Dairy Tooth Ice House, Berjaya Times Square Review


Itching for that Egg puffs or other light bite snacks you have had when you were in Hong Kong after coming back from there? What about the Milk tea or even the Yin Yong(Cham)? What if I tell you that you could get them right smack in KL right now?

Freshly made egg puffs comes in a variety of flavoring to suit your taste buds.

Video of the preparation

Crispy yet fluffy, it's definitely a must try

I also had the chance to try their coconut coffee paired with their seaweed egg puffs creation and the combination is perfect.

Then we also have the Hong Kong Style Dong Leng Cha aka Ice Lemon Tea brewed just the HK way.

They also serve other light bites like the peanut butter waffle for those who wants a much filling bite paired with their Silky Milk Tea being one of their signature drinks made from top grade milk tea blended with evaporated milk.


One could also pair it with their Yin Yong aka Coffee Milk Tea aka Cham made the same way with added coffee for the kick while biting on their Chocolate Waffle.

Of course there are other fruit based drinks(Shown here is the Blue Curacao Citrus Yakult drink which I would really recommend) that you can choose from apart from their milk tea selections.

They also specialize in their Butter Sugar French Toast

The Spicy Chicken Floss French Toast is highly recommended.

The verdict: Overall it's a good place to go to reminiscent the Hong Kong taste right here in Malaysia and it's located right in the middle of the town in Berjaya Times Square. They have also recently opened another branch in Jaya One PJ. Price is ranging from Medium to High Range. I was expecting curry fishballs from them =)

Heavenly High-Tea @ Palace of the Golden Horses Review

Wanting a quiet time with your partner over the weekends and don't know where to go? How many times have we fall in the situation where we feel the malls are too packed on weekends and just getting a place to park your car is a pain in the rear while cinema good seats are always filled? All you want is some alone time with your partner and it's so hard right? Nope. You should try the Grand Salon Lobby Lounge's Heavenly High-Tea at the Palace of the Golden Horses

The centerpiece of rotating Koi-Horses, one of the legends of Palace adorns the Lobby lounge

With a seating capacity of 72, you could have your small group private lunch arrangement here too.

Back to the Hi Tea selection. Palace offers 3 selections of Hi Tea from RM65 nett onwards, namely the English Hi Tea Set as above priced at RM112 nett per stand for 2 person served with coffee or tea with the option of free flow of chilled juice at RM115 nett or with a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut at RM895 nett.

Assorted afternoon tea pastries, tarts and cakes

Freshly baked raisin orange and plain scones served with Devonshire cream and Strawberry preserve

My personal favorite from top clockwise order:
- Cucumber sandwich with cream cheese, pickles & chives on caraway seeds bread.
- Lobster & dill sandwich with grain mustard mayo on mixed grain bread
- Scottish smoked salmon sandwich with lemon butter on rye bread

Next up we have the Malaysian Hi Tea selection at RM65 nett per stand for 2 person served with coffee or tea with the option of free flow of chilled juice at RM 68 nett or with a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut at RM850 nett.

The Malaysian Hi Tea set is unique as it features our local kuihs such as Kek Lapis, Seri Muka, Yam Cake and Kuih Ketayap

On the other plate is the Nasi Lemak Burger, Chicken Satay Open Faced served with satay sauce!

Punjabi Samosa, Mini Apam Balik, Ipoh Heong Peah(Biscuit with Maltose fillings) and mini chicken Char Siew Pau.

As they always say, I leave the best for the last. Why? Cos it's called Healthy Hi Tea stand priced at only RM65 nett per stand for 2 person served with coffee or tea with the option of free flow of chilled juice at RM 68 nett or with a bottle of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut at RM850 nett. You know when people say healthy doesn't rhyme with delicious, I beg to differ in this case. Why? Let me introduce the food then you would know.

From top in clockwise order:
- Avocado Masher with sesame, sunflower seeds & coriander. Coming from a person who doesn't eat avocado, this is really an eye opener on how differently this could taste. A definitely must try.
- Deep fried yam puff with fresh mushroom. Another must try for all yam and mushroom lovers!
- Steamed Cassava with honey. Not a fan of non fried cassava but this taste extremely good like mashed sweet potatoes.

Clockwise from top right:
- Banana, Peanut butter and almond shooter. On first glance it looks like pastry at the bottom but it's actually banana and the combination is real flavorful in the mouth
- Mini Cashew nut tart
- Rasberry and Vanilla custard choux bun. If the fruity burst from the raspberry ain't enough, the vanilla custard will definitely tingle your senses.

Clockwise from top right:
Spinach & Alfafa sprouts on charcoal toast
Green peas, fresh mint & Parmesan crostini,
Endive spears with garbanzo salsa

We even have a special presentation from the chef on how the Avocado masher was made

Fresh and loving each bite of it.
