A Portmanteau of Art & Tea - Arteastiq
Arteastiq is a boutique tea house oasis that offers you a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The name itself is a portmanteau of art and tea with the purpose of teasing your senses through working your creative juices and tantalising your taste buds.
Arteastiq also offers you an opportunity to get in tuned with your creative side by providing you with the therapeutic experience of canvas expression. They call it Art Jam. The whole concept of social interaction through the expression of painting and gathering whilst overlooking the busy life pass you by is simply an experience not to be missed. Time slows down and you start to appreciate the mundanity of life. This is an activity perfect for all ages, especially couples and families with children. You will be provided with a canvas, limitless colours and a free beverage to get you started. Let your creative juices flow!
The painting sessions are 11am - 2pm, 2:30pm - 5:30pm & 6pm - 9pm and are priced at $48SGD per session. They are only available at their Mandarin Gallery and Plaza Singapura outlets.
The premium tea lounge has an elegant chi-chi ambience with a comprehensive medley of artisanal tea selections for all occasions. Elegantly decorated, Arteastiq aims to make you feel at home and remind people to admire and appreciate the beauty of the simple things. Sometimes, it's okay to take it slow and sip some tea while chatting with your loved ones.
At the other end lies the Art Jam Studio. The colours are beautifully displayed and free for use of the Art Jammers and the smiles on their faces really draw you in and made you wish you could paint too.
The boutique boasts over 70 in-house tea selections; all of them a medley of different flavours and invoking different emotions. The tea was fragrant and served in elegant glass teapots which really appealed to my aesthetics. They plated their food and beverages beautifully and was definitely worth a snap to display on Instagram
While Arteastiq is known more for its Western style dishes and brunch items such as its Crab Cake Breakfast and Chicken & Waffle food wise, their recently revamped menu includes more Asian touches to satisfy a wider range of tastes. The food all looked so good, it was extremely tempting to try them all. They also have a selection of desserts that was really hard to pass up, and premium gelatos that had really interesting flavours such as lavender, durian, yuzu and more.
