Ordered these Rotation Temptation for my peepz in Hong Kong while they post me my all time favorite from Spring Moon @ Penninsula Hong Kong.  I was one box off when I posted them out, made a call to the hotel and was told that they were sold out.  Luckily, the W insider managed to get me one, phew~~~ Friends make sure that you enjoy them, they are hard to get.

I am impressed with W Taipei’s idea of making use of the best talents in Taiwan.  The one of a kind mooncake box is designed by Miniwiz ( Minimize your carbon footprint).  An energetic team whose goal is to turn trash into products, so as you can see the mooncake box is made out of recycled materials. Thumbs up, W Taipei and the team.  To do our parts, we should recycle the boxes after we consume the mooncakes.

Fruity Temptation Mooncakes is another invention after last year’s Shake and Share with the innovative cocktail flavors. There were 5 flavors last year and the Espresso Martini & Japanese Chestnut was my favorite.  This year’s Tropical Fruity Temptations has 3 flavors No.18 Taiwan Ruby Black Tea Yu-Jing Mango Cake (台茶18玉井芒果酥), Valrhona P125 Coeur de Guanaja Zhong-Liao Banana Cake (P125法芙娜巧克力中寮香蕉蛋糕) and Honey Scented Black Tea Guan-Miau Pineapple cake(蜜香紅茶關廟鳳梨酥)

This year they mixed and matched some of the local fruits with the tea and chocolate, I admitted even though they only have three flavors this year, but all three of them seems very tempting. The Mango one was quite buttery, it was like an enlarged version of pineapple cake with mango fillings. The mango taste wasn’t that strong but the after taste of the tea did surprise me.  This is a good companion for your afternoon cuppa.  Yet to try the other flavors!

Overall, my friends had given positive feedbacks on it, and now mooncake is no longer lotus seed paste and egg yolks 🙂
