Award-winning Mooncake expert Tai Thong continues its tradition of showcasing the wonderment of the Mooncake Festival this year by drawing inspiration from our homeland, Malaysia.
From traditional flavors of last year to our nation’s symbolic colors, this year Tai Thong promises to take you on a historical journey back in time.
Infused with the colors of Nyonya traditions and inspired by beautifully crafted batik design, Tai Thong’s Mooncake packaging is a palatable synergy of red, blue, and green colors. Red signifying Malaysia’s Chinese ethnicity; Blue symbolic of Indian heritage; Green representing the legacy of Malay roots.
To mark this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival, Tai Thong Group Executive Mooncake Chef Yiu Wing Keung has created a limited edition Mooncake – the Imperial Musang King Royale.
The Imperial Musang King Royale Mooncake leverages on the bold characteristic of the Musang King, using only 100% premium Musang King Durian, resulting in a mouthful of heavenly bliss in every bite. Luscious and creamy, the rich durian filling isn’t too overwhelming on the palate due to it being enveloped in a delicate snow skin case.
“It was important for me keep the purity of these wonderful durians as I wanted to maintain the aroma and flavor of the fruit. The only added element is the delicate snow skin that envelopes the delicious durian filling, perfectly complementing the taste of the fruit,” said Yiu.
Aside from this year signature Imperial Musang King Durian, there are 9 others new flavors introducing to the public this year:
A white-skinned chia-seed studded Mooncake featuring earthy Cameron sweet corn and fragrant pandan.
Black Forest Highland
A pairing of black sesame paste with fragrant coconut and golden crushed egg yolk.
White Mocha Delight
Delivering an intense java jolt, deeply aromatic Nanyang White Coffee is coupled with the rich creaminess of white chocolate.
A delectable mix of red bean paste and tangerine peels finished with a hint of lemon and calamansi flavors.
A dreamy creamy snow skinned Mooncake featuring premium durian flesh paired with fragrant coconut and aromatic pandan.
A honey-scented snow skin Mooncake that fuses Nanyang White Coffee with fragrant custard and crunchy roasted macadamia nut bits.
A colorful tri-layered snow skin Mooncake bursting with 3 fruity flavors – mango, grapefruit, and pandan. An aromatic and refreshing Mooncake that will tease your taste buds.
Pineapple Sesame Crunch
Homemade baked pineapple tart is perfectly complemented by velvety soft sesame green bean paste.
Teh Tarik Delight
Distinct elements and flavors of Malaysia’s favorite beverage are combined with savory coconut paste and enveloped in black charcoal snow skin.
