The Peninsula Manila transforms its classic Afternoon Tea into edible art inspired by the scents, colors and textures of Philippine-made treasures from MaArte Fair 2017.

The Lobby is the heart of The Peninsula Manila. It is also considered one of the city’s most famous landmarks. Some guests stay at the hotel because of its soaring atrium topped with National Artist Napoleon Abueva’s stunning “Sunburst” sculpture, others return for its live orchestras that play music 365 days a year, but many more flock to The Lobby for its famed classic Afternoon Tea.

Throughout the month of August, there’s an even better reason to enjoy Afternoon Tea at The Lobby, especially if one has a hankering 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 organized 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, beauty products 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 da-u-de and subtle Coco Melange from the rice terraces of Ifugao and robust Sagada Tips harvested from the slopes of the Cordilleras, both produced by Tsaa Laya.

A side event during the three-day MaArte Fair 2017 that will be held at the third floor Gallery of The Peninsula Manila from August 11 to 13, 2017 is MaArTEA Talks in Salon de Ning – a series of talks co-hosted by León Gallery where select business owners will offer entrepreneurial tips and insights on their enterprises and how these have helped support local communities.
