Ten beautifully baked mooncakes, from the traditional to the unusual
Hankering for a taste of tradition? These lovely creations show that old is indeed gold.
Singapore Breakfast Tea
For a palate-pleasing pairing, opt for a steaming pot of Singapore Breakfast Tea from TWG ($40 for 100g) with your favourite mooncake. The bold flavoured tea combines sweet and spicy gingers with an unusual blend of green tea and black tea, and is accented with a bouquet of rare spices.
Available at TWG.

To combat the oiliness of the mooncake, try the Alishan Oolong ($21 per tin) from The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. Its flowery and fruity fragrance will complement the sweetness of lotus paste.
