THE STORY OF THE MACARON
04 March 2021
The macaron was born in Venice, Italy from whence it voyaged with Catherine de Medicis on the occasion of her marriage to the Duke of Orleans, future king of France. The popularity of this little sweet grew, particularly in elegant monasteries and manor houses throughout France, and is now celebrated all around the world on March 20th, as the World Macaron Day.
Today, TWG Tea has added its signature teas to the recipe, transforming the macaron into a uniquely memorable confection. Passionately innovative in the conception of tea-infused patisseries of exquisite taste and enduring quality, TWG Tea macarons are infused with exclusive tea blends and entirely handcrafted daily using only the freshest and purest natural ingredients.
The process begins in TWG Tea’s state of the art patisserie laboratories each morning at the break of dawn to ensure that the delicate almond meringues are always perfectly crisp with a luxuriously smooth and chewy centre. The sugar in these jewel-toned confections has been painstakingly reduced by a third, making TWG Tea macarons unique in the market, tastier and healthier. A treasured favourite that perfectly complements the uplifting and extraordinary tea tasting experience.
