Afternoon Tea for a Cause at The Peninsula Manila


Promotion: August 1 - 31, 2017 (Expired)

Called MaArTEA, these tea selections at The Lobby will be complemented by sweets and savories by the Pastry Chef Xavier Castello for the benefit of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines.

Throughout the month of August, there’s an even better reason to enjoy Afternoon Tea at The Lobby, especially if one has a craving for a little “me time” with a philanthropic twist. Executive Pastry Chef Xavier Castello and his team have created the MaArTEA Afternoon Tea inspired by the scents, colors and textures of Philippine-made treasures from MaArte Fair 2017 that will be held at the third floor Gallery of The Peninsula Manila from August 11 to 13, 2017.  

MaArte Fair 2017 is a fundraiser organised by the Museum Foundation of the Philippines for the National Museum of the Philippines.  It’s a veritable display of world-class Filipino craftsmanship, highlighting jewelry, fashion, home linens, travel accessories, lamps, scents and accessories from top and emerging designers and artisans who create beautiful and unique pieces that support local communities. 

Delicious nibbles from the MaArTEA Afternoon Tea set include classic sampaguita macarons and jasmine tea-infused ganache tartlets; mango cheesecake pouches and caramel millefeuilles; feta-spinach sundried tomato quiches; Pamora chicken salad with celery, truffle aioli and arugula; Parma ham, olive tapenade and confit tomato sandwiches; Smoked salmon, dill cream cheese and lemon jam and many others. Making the MaArTEA Afternoon Tea extra special are a selection of organic MaArTEAs, including flowery Sampaguita Pearl by and subtle Coco Mélange from the rice terraces of Ifugao and robust Sagada Tips harvested from the slopes of the Cordilleras, both produced by Tsaa Laya. The Afternoon tea set is available at 995 pesos per person or 1,680 pesos per person if enjoyed with a flute of Champagne.

The afternoon tea set is served daily from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM with the addition of the Traditional Philippine Merienda Buffet from Fridays to Sundays.
