Arteastiq @ Mandarin Gallery


For the November issue of Women's Weekly Magazine, it came with 1 for 1 dining coupons for the month of November only. Since I was on leave, took the opportunity and make a reservation at Arteastiq for the 1 for 1 High Tea before the coupon expired.

Arteastiq located at the heart of Orchard at Mandarin Gallery, is a posh chill out tea lounge where customers can relax with friends or rest their tiring feet after a day of shopping at Orchard. Arteastiq has a fascinating range of special, alcoholic, dessert and fruit tea sets and an assortment of “teasers” (savouries) and desserts (premium gelato, cakes and scones) to go along in a luxurious and relaxing setting. Arteastiq offers an unique tea experience with its modern lounge and designer furniture by Marxx.

Dessert Tea 4.5/5

For a start, my partner and I tried the Dessert Tea which was an unique and interesting combination of tea and ice cream. We had the French Rose Tea with Champagne Vanilla Gelato and Oolong Tea with Lychee Martini Gelato. The Dessert Tea definitely won our hearts with the innovative and refreshing concept.


The Dessert Tea also comes with a small cup of the tea. I thought that was a nice warm touch to taste the true flavour of the freshly brewed tea's quality.

Double Teasery 4/5

The Double Teasery came with 6 mini bites and cold cuts. On the top plate, there were the Signature Crispy Wraps and Apple Cake. The Crispy Wraps with Chicken Breast was an unique creation using Roti Prata to wrap a choice of your filling. The plain looking Apple Cake was surprisingly moist and flavourful. On the other Double Teasery, we tried the Crispy Wraps with Roasted Beef and Orange Cake. Both were excellent too.

Double Teasery 4/5

On the lower plate, we have the Atlantic Smoked Salmon, Smoked Turkey Ham, Crabmeat Salad served with volvant, Spicy Jumbo Topshell with Chilled Mango Achar. The pinkish Atlantic Smoked Salmon rich savoury, buttery taste was very enjoyable but lacked the smokey flavour. Among all, the Crabmeat Salad served with volvant was our favourite. We would gladly substitute some of the other bites for more of it.

Lychee Fruit Tea 4/5

Lychee Fruit Tea 4/5

After finishing all the lovely food, for the second round of tea we went for the hot fruit tea. I had the Lychee Fruit Tea while my partner had the Pear Fruit Tea. It was a real enjoyment sipping a cup of tea in a cozy contemporary Europe ambient. At Arteastiq, each pot of tea is brewed separately on the spot with the freshest ingredients to assure quality. Hence, do be patient. Sit back, relax or browse the magazines that are readily available.
