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.
Dear diners, please note the following two sittings for reservations on weekends and public holidays:
Session 1: 1:30pm
Session 2: 3:30pm
These sittings are exclusively for the luscious seafood high tea (from $98++) only. Both sittings last 2 hours. The team will confirm reservations within 24 hours of booking. Thank you!
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.
The mains were quite salty but it is still quite tasty:) the desserts were bad:/ ginger creme brulee is not for people who arent a fan of ginger as the gibger bits were quite overwheming..as for the matcha cheesecake,it is like eating matcha with fixzy sugar..totally no taste of the cheesecake..the drinks was awesome as always..however,desserts and mains can be further improved!
A quaint and nice place for high tea, but so much for lunch. 1 point due to the duck dish being quite salty that we had to use tabasco to alleviate the sodium. Service is friendly and fast, and everything came really fast. Possibly because its after lunch time.
There were 11 of us. Ordered from the weekday set lunch menu that come with a speciality tea. Service was good and prompt. The food was good and teas were awesome. Will definitely go back again for the food and perhaps try the art jamming next to the restaurant.
