Entering the lobby area of JW Marriott hotel in Jakarta, you will find a cute little spot with a variety of chai tea from the Himalayas.
Yes, it’s the one and only Chaiholics. As the second branch after the one in Singapore, Chaiholics comes with an exciting concept like never before. All of the teas served in Chaiholics are taken from a pesticide-free plantation in the Himalayas, which was a place where the Dalai Lama used to enjoy his tea. The flavors and aromas that you can smell from the tea are also very authentic that you can feel like you’re enjoying a cup of chai whose leaves are freshly picked right from the garden.
At Chaiholics, chai latte comes in six different natural spiced flavors, namely: Classic Masala, Zesty Ginger, Refreshing Lemongrass, Aromatic Cardamom, Summer Rose and Chocolate-T. The chai lattes are uniquely brewed using an Italian-made customized manual espresso machine called ‘Chaipresso’. Chaiholics is rightly the master of tea as it is also the first tea cafe chain with a patent of espresso-styled chai latte machines in Indonesia. Their specialties also include tea and yogurt coolers, a refreshing overnight tea infused mixture. For the sweeter tooth, Chaiholics also offers an appetizing, tea-infused, soft serve summer rose and chocolate-t ice cream and yogurt option.
The pastry team from JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta also provides various eggless cakes, such as Orange Pound, Lemon Peel, Dark Chocolate and also Fruit Cake. The culinary team from Sailendra Restaurant also provides Chicken Tikka Charcoal Croissants, Oxtail Sambal Koja, Oxtail Samosas and a lot of other delicious options.
With a spacious area accommodating up to 70 seats, Chaiholics opens daily from 7AM to 11PM and cater guests who need tea time in the morning or leisure dinner at night.
