Tea & Kue Lapis pairing!
For the month of October, we have chosen to tie-up with our good friends from OLLELLA to bring you tea and kue lapis pairing.
Kue lapis is Indonesian kue, or a traditional spiced layer cake. In Indonesian language lapis means "layers". As kids, we grew up around kue lapis a lot, but we have never tried tea and kue lapis pairing untill recently. So if you are curious how the pairing would be like, be sure to stop by Looksee Looksee - a tea salon and reading room by The Lo & Behold Group - this October to try them!

OLLELLA is not only known for their choux and chouquettes but also for their kue lapis! Made using the founders' grandmother's 60 years old recipe, the aromatic cake is the symbol of family tradition. Handmade lovingly layer by layer using the secret spice blend, each cake is a labor of love that takes 6 hours to produce. Enjoy its moist decadent layers with a sip of warm tea to bring out the spice fragrance and sweet buttery taste.
