There’s nothing quite like commemorating the annual Mid-Autumn Festival, than with traditional treats like baked mooncakes and tea. This season, send your love in the form of bespoke gift boxes from Marco’s Cellar.
Available in four variations, Marco’s Cellar’s Mid-Autumn Festival Gift Boxes combine traditional goodies curated from local brands. The Tuan Yuan 团圆 Reunited Box ($179) comprises four pieces of 100g traditional baked mooncakes, two tins of loose tea from the 1872 Clipper Tea Co., and a bottle of Urban Cabernet Sauvignon 2020.
No Mid-Autumn Festival is complete without a round of traditional mooncakes. Savour two flavours in the Tuan Yuan 团圆 Reunited Box – Plain White Lotus, and White Lotus with Single Yolk. The mooncakes are subtle and fragrant, with less sugar used in the Plain White Lotus flavour to ease that all too familiar guilt of festive snacking. For a more savoury punch, indulge in the White Lotus with Single Yolk flavour.
Pair your mooncakes with a selection of loose teas from 1872 Clipper Tea Co. Flavours include Earl Grey, Pu’Er Emperor, and Raffles Oolong. Of the three, I found the robust Pu’er Tiao Cha pairs best with the White Lotus Mooncakes!
End off with an evening tipple from Mendoza, Argentina. The Urban Cabernet Sauvignon 2020. The peppery and fruity of this famed red grape will no doubt appeal to wine lovers among your group. More wine and spirit options are available in other gift boxes!
