Singapore: Where to Have a Gorgeous Cup of Tea and Awaken Your Inner Artist

Yesterday, I checked out Arteastiq: a fabulous boutique tea house hidden inside Mandarin Gallery.  This beautiful tea room serves sophisticated delicious teas as well as gourmet meals, light bites and dessert.  I tried the Ginger Spice tea and fell in love.  It was everything a cup of tea should be for a rainy day (which it happened to be)- sweet, spicy, and rich with flavors of cinnamon as well.  Aside from the lovely setting of this tea salon, it also serves as a space for artists.  Separated from the main restaurant/cafe, there is a painting studio, where up to 30 people can paint at the same time.  This is how they explain it on their website

Customers are given a 50 x 50 cm or 60 x 80cm canvas, unlimited acrylic paint, sponges, brushes and paint palette and are let loose with their imaginations. One free beverage from Arteastiq will be supplied and would-be artists can also order alcoholic beverages to help stimulate the flow of creative juices.

There are even workshops that you can attend to fine tune your skills.  On their website they feature several promotions- from date night 2 for 1 deals, to lunch specials, it’s definitely a place worth giving a try.  I only enjoyed the tea on my visit but I am looking forward to going for an “art jam” soon!
