Hence, for this year, apart from the complimentary boxes of mooncakes, we stick to buying our favourites instead of the new flavours for our families. Peony Jade’s Mao Shan Wang Snowskin, Raffles Hotel's Champagne Truffle snowskin mooncake, Carlton Hotel’s signature Walnut Moontart and Mandarin Orchard’s Baked Mooncake with Macadamia Nuts and Low Sugar White Lotus made no exception for this year and when it comes to green tea snowskin, it will has to be from Ritz Carlton Millennia as (till date) I have not found one that has such strong infusion of matcha in the lotus seed paste.
Apart from their signature mini bing pi Green Tea paste, mini bing pi Lycheetini paste is another flavor not to be missed for the meltingly smooth lychee-liquor infused ganache at the centre of the mooncake though Yuan felt that it can be better if white chocolate shells are used. However, we do feel a little disappointed for the snowskin and lotus paste is slightly sticky and not as smooth as my other favourites.
Lastly, another plus point for Ritz Carlton’s mooncakes lies in the packaging. Without fail for every year, their boxes are the sleekest with a size and finishing suited to be a jewellery box.
