Malaysia: Quali-tea Time

I’m all about that tea-time satisfaction. I live for anything that has to do with a good, warm drink paired with my favorite desserts. So you can only imagine my reaction when I was invited to fly to Malaysia to visit a biscuit factory. Obviously, my reaction was yassss because this opportunity gave me the chance to expand my tea-time dessert list and couldn’t say no to visiting Julie’s.

It was my first time traveling to Malaysia and I’m so happy that I got to experience not only the culture and historical places, but the food as well yum yum.

Melacca & Kuala Lumpur Tours

Love the colorful trishaws, a form of bicycle-powered rickshaw, that cruise around Melacca (also spelled Melaka). Each driver decorates their trishaw with bright flowers, flashing lights, flags, dolls, souvenirs complete with a sound system!

I also got to visit the Philippine Embassy in Malaysia. How wonderful is the sprawling property with a cool vintage house/office and lots of greenery. Shoutout to my girl Carol for giving me the tour (and my Sailor Moon gift ahhhhhhh!!!)

During my trip to Malaysia, I found out that Julie’s is a company with a heart.

Julie & me

Julie’s is a biscuit brand from Malaysia (not connected to the local Julie’s Bakeshop) who makes all of of their confections with love (and tbh, I agree because my tummy was sooo full of love after trying practically every one of their products). I’m definitely adding their biscuits to my tea-time tradition. My faves are their famous Peanut Butter Sandwich Biscuits, Oat 25 Hazelnut & Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cheddar Cheese Le-mond Biscuits (both tdf).

What sets Julie’s biscuits apart from other brands I’ve tried is the quality. The crackers are super crispy, flaky and light and their fillings are perfectly blended. Julie’s products are so good that even the chocolate giant Hershey’s partnered with them and created limited edition cookies!

Okay, so now that you know that all their biscuits are basically amazeballs, to take your Julie’s and tea time dessert experience to a whole new level, why not try making a super simple dessert that’s perfect (and visually impressive) for your tea-time guests? Here’s a no-bake recipe for Julie’s Fruity Layer Cake using their Butter Crackers and Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Cookies.

So whether or not you decide to make a simple yet fancy dessert or basically eating them on their own, Julie’s biscuits will always bring you warm feelings of childhood nostalgia with that home-baked feeling while satisfying your snack cravings.

  1. I seriously loved all your OOTDs on this trip!!! <3 And that layer cake looks yummy! Kinda similar to the graham cake that me and my mom always used to make. Totally dropping by the nearest supermarket to check our their biscuits–super intrigued with the Cheddar Cheese Le-Mond biscuits. 😀
