About the restaurant
The art of British high tea is popular throughout Asia, and in Singapore, fans of the form can’t go past Arteastiq’s Boutique Tea House, to be found in a very imperious setting at the Mandarin Gallery along Orchard Road. With a name suggesting the intersection between the art of teasing and the art of tea that makes you tick, Arteastiq caters to discerning tea-drinkers looking for a modern tea lounge that preserves the sensibilities of the European salon, but with the brand always attracting a lot of custom, we strongly recommend a reservation.
Singapore has long been a crossroads between east and west, the classic and the contemporary. Indeed, these cultures and epochs meet at Arteastiq Boutique Tea House, located in Orchard Road’s Mandarin Gallery. Tea, of course, is an ancient Asian tradition. Taken up centuries ago by the European aristocracy, the concept of high tea has wound its way back to the origin of tea, the east, where tea aficionados enjoy their tipple (both traditional brews and teas with a contemporary twist) seated on modern lounge furniture, designed by Marxx, but reminiscent of 17th and 18th century designs.
Fruit teas, English floral teas, Chinese, and Japanese teas, dessert teas, and even alcoholic teas jostle for elbow space alongside sweet and savoury delicacies on Arteastiq’s crowded menu. And we can’t forget the crowds that flock to Singapore’s latest rave – the patented Arteastiq Art Jam. It’s a novel concept whereby customers can sip their tea together while tapping into their inner creative. Reservations are recommended.
