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 PastryChef 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.


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.
