Tea and Sympathy for the National Museum of the Philippines – that’s the philosophy behind the MaArTEA Afternoon Tea Collection.
Believing that we can all depend on one another for the well-being of the whole, The Peninsula Manila Executive Chef Xavier Castello and his team have created a delicious selection of pastries and savories and paired them with the Tsa Alaya line of hot and cold teas using leaves and herbs picked from various regions of the Philippines to come up with the MaArTEA Afternoon Tea Collection.
The MaArTEA Afternoon Tea Collection is a supplementary fundraising activity of MaArte at The Pen 2018, an ultra-luxe bazaar highlighting the best in 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. Something new to look forward to this year is the Pinoy Man Cave where exhibitors will come out with special lines just for men
