Tea lovers rejoice as Singapore's authentic tea cafe chain opens its first flagship bistro in JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta's revamped lobby al fresco terrace area. Chaiholics specializes in tea creations and chai or spiced tea that uses exotic blends of tea, ethically hand-grown from pesticide-free tea gardens. Some of the premium teas, such as Bulgarian Rose Tea, are planted on the tea garden where the Honorable Dalai Lama drinks his teas in Himalayan mountains today.
Blending the east and the west, Chaiholics highlights chai lattes made from pure spice instead of syrup with the first and only Chaipresso machine in Indonesia. There are currently six flavors available, Classic Masala, Zesty Ginger, Refreshing Lemongrass, Aromatic Cardamom, Summer Rose and Chocolate-T. You can choose if they want hot or cold, but there are recommendations on the best serving options.
Pure and blended tea aficionados will appreciate the premium collection of White Peony Tea, Bulgarian Rose Tea, Oolong Tea, Darjeeling, Green Tea and Queen's Tea. All tea are not served with sweetener as most of them can be enjoyed on their own, but you are welcome to add sugar, milk or honey as they wouldn't ruin the tea - the latter is best paired with any tea. Their specialties also include tea and yogurt coolers, a refreshing overnight tea infused concoction, and tea-infused soft serve for the sweet tooth, Summer Rose and Chocolate-T ice cream and yogurt variety.
To complement your tea time, signature eggless cakes such as the Orange Pound, Lemon Peel, Dark Chocolate and the rich Fruit Cake are on the delectable menu. The culinary team of the JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta also creates savory dishes including Chicken Tikka Charcoal Croissant, Oxtail Sambal Koja and Oxtail Samosas.
Bring back home an array of merchandising, from witty t-shirts, Teapot Treasure Hampers, 3-in-1 Tea Gift Sets, Premium Cookies to a variety of 50g retail tea tins. There are still hundreds of future tea collections to be released in the store, so you can always look forward to something new.
