Continuing its ten years of excellence celebration, The St. Regis Bali Resort proudly presents a distinctive theme for The Quintessential Afternoon Tea Series, Heritage Tea Time with Iwan Tirta Private Collection at King Cole Bar in September – October 2018.
In conjunction with National Batik Day, The St. Regis Bali Resort joins hands with Iwan Tirta Private Collection to celebrate Indonesian heritage with an unprecedented tea ritual blending the St. Regis legacy with the nation’s pride.
Guests are invited to experience the perfect blend of a crafted tea time while celebrating the heritage of Batik, a UNESCO World Heritage Masterpiece, with Iwan Tirta Batik-inspired tea time delicacies as well as Indonesian sweet and savory delights crafted by our talented chefs.
The Perfect Blend
The tradition of making batik is found in many places in Indonesia, including Bali. Iwan Tirta Private Collection presents selected patterns from its Dewaraja Series, which take inspiration from the history of Indonesia’s ancient kingdoms, from the Majapahit era to the early Bali kingdom, as meticulously documented by the maestro, Iwan Tirta.
St. Regis tea time delicacies with Balinese Batik pattern inspiration from the Iwan Tirta Private Collection take the stage.
I. Lapis Legit Dewata Handbag Cake (Ceplok Kembang Bali pattern) Indonesian Lapis Legit is a sweet layer cake inspired by the Dutch spekkoek. The cake is enjoyed at holiday gatherings or festivities. Taking the shape of a classic handbag, the cake is adorned with the Ceplok Kembang Bali pattern, one of the oldest geometric patterns in the history of Batik, the shape of a flower representing the beauty of life.
II. Pandan Roll Cake (Ceplok Swastika Bali Latar Pattern)
Believed to be the most sacred symbol in the Balinese Hindu culture, the Swastika is the symbol of kindness. The Ceplok Swastika Bali Latar pattern covers the Indonesian Pandan Roll Cake, a spongy cake made with fresh pandan juice that is a perfect tea companion.
III. Mini Banana Chocolate Table (Ukel Teratai Bali Pattern)
One of Indonesia’s favorite street snacks, Chocolate Banana, or Pisang Coklat, is a fried banana covered in chocolate glaze. The creative creation takes the shape of a mini table with a table cloth using the Ukel Teratai Bali Batik pattern, which depicts the rise and bloom of light over the darkness to reach enlightenment, bringing good fortune.
IV. Mini CocoJack Tent (Sekar Kencono Bali Pattern)
A unique take on traditional mousse made of coconut and jackfruit in the shape of a tent covered in Sekar Kencono Bali pattern. Sekar Kencono is inspired by the beauty of Balinese flower ornaments with the underlying philosophy that humans should bring goodness from within, portraying full enthusiasm and wisdom in the self, thus giving happiness to their surroundings.
Enjoy the special tea time creations with a live jazz pianist in a heritage ambiance uniquely decorated by the Iwan Tirta Private Collection at King Cole Bar.
