There’s no stopping matcha mania in the Philippines, and Newport Mall is set to launch the country’s first ever matcha-themed food festival. Matcha is one of the healthiest forms of green tea that dissolves entire tea leaves to maximize flavor and health components.
Matcha originated in Japan as a powdered type of green tea and its popularity has since risen in countries around the world, thanks to its complex flavors and detoxifying health benefits. With an ever growing fan base, matcha has also been used in other recipes from sweet desserts to savory rice meals.
To meet the Filipino’s matcha cravings and to further share its health benefits in the Philippines, Newport Mall is setting the stage for matcha’s local takeover through a one of a kind festival. With matcha art installations, matcha-infused concoctions, and a specialty market,this health sensation is taking the spotlight in a month long matcha-love affair.
During the campaign, guests will have a chance to try limited edition matcha-creations from participating establishments in Newport Mall and Resorts World Manila. Such establishments include Bulgogi Brothers, Café Creole, Crepes and Cream, Serenitea, UCC Café, TWG Tea, Ichiba Japanese Market, Johnny Kahuku, Mr. Kurosawa, Kettle, CBTL, CaféMaxims, Impressions, Franks, Ginzadon and Prosperity Court.
For a visual treat, guests will marvel at the “Matcha Art Exhibit” that will put these matcha-masterpieces on display on the ground floor of Newport Mall.
For matcha lovers who want to take home local and imported green tea merchandise, a “Matcha Market” will offer matcha-flavored confections, treats, and other products available for purchase also on the Ground Floor of Newport Mall.
