Singapore Airlines And TWG Tea Bring Gourmet Tea To The Air
From 1 July, customers travelling on Singapore Airlines Suites, First Class and Business Class will be able to choose from an exquisite range of unique International, Asian and Chinese tea blends, proudly developed by Singapore luxury brand, TWG Tea.
The selection of teas available on each of the routes on Singapore Airlines’ network is designed to suit the profile of the customers on each route, e.g. flights to and from China will feature a wider range of Chinese teas.
With an unsurpassed tea list of over 800 different single origin harvests and exclusive blends from every tea producing country, TWG Tea tasters travel thousands of kilometres every year to develop special varieties together with the most renowned estates.
The introduction of the new teas will complement the existing selection of gourmet coffees, champagnes and wines that are handpicked by our very own panel of wine consultants.
Said Singapore Airlines’ Vice President Inflight Services Ms Betty Wong, “Our collaboration with TWG Tea began as Singapore Airlines recognised the increasingly sophisticated palates of our customers. As a well-established tea company with blends of exceptional quality and diversity, TWG Tea is perfectly suited to meet the wide-ranging tastes of our customers.”
“And we are especially pleased to feature two types of Singapore teas in our selection, the Singapore Breakfast Tea, which is an exclusive blend of green and black tea with vanilla and spices, and the Paris-Singapore Tea – a unique blend of green tea with fragrant cherry blossoms and red fruits. I am sure these will be very popular with our customers,” she added.
Said TWG Tea’s President Taha Bouqdib, “Both Singapore Airlines and TWG Tea share a fundamental spirit of quality, excellence and taste. Luxury is in the details and Singapore Airlines has proven its desire to give customers an exceptional experience by featuring TWG Tea connoisseurship in its Suites, First Class & Business Class.”
The selection of TWG teas that will be featured on board from 1 July is listed in the Annex.

About Singapore Airlines
When Singapore Airlines was formed in 1972, it operated a modest fleet of 10 aircraft to just 22 cities in 18 countries. With a commitment to fleet modernisation, product and service innovation and market leadership, the Airline quickly distinguished itself as a world-class carrier.
Today, Singapore Airlines operates a modern passenger fleet of more than 100 aircraft and its network, including Singapore Airlines Cargo and SilkAir destinations, currently covers a total of 94 destinations in 38 countries.
In October 2007, Singapore Airlines made aviation history again as the first to fly the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380.
