Qiwellness Living Tagaytay: the Tea House

I've already showed you the Bath House part of Qiwellness Living in Tagaytay. Now let me focus on the Tea House, which is the dining area of the place, as well as our 8 course Yin Yang degustation dinner.

The Chinese Tea House

Traditionally, a Chinese tea house provides a tranquil place where one can meditate while sipping tea and enjoying a natural scenery such as lakes, mountains, and forests. At the teahouse at Qiwellness Living, you dine against the stunning backdrop of the Taal lake with a perfect view of the Taal volcano.

This is the Dining Hall which is equipped with Ming Dynasty 2 meter high chairs and a one piece rectangular table over 20 feet long. This is the more formal area that can seat 20 or so guests, perfect for family banquets or even corporate events.

Check out this gorgeous area which is just a few steps away from the spa. They can set up a romantic dinner for 2 here, overlooking the Taal volcano. Wouldn't this area be perfect for maybe a proposal, with the sun setting over this magnificent view? ;p

Going down the steps from the Dining Hall is the more casual dining area where our bloggers' dinner was held.

with my date for the night
with my fellow bloggers, all gorgeous ladies inside and out :)

Qiwellness Living's dishes are inspired by the traditional Chinese medicine’s principle of “yin” and “yang” and utilizing classical and modern culinary techniques with western and eastern ingredients. Their 6 and 8 course Yin Yang menus are multi-course degustation menus that changes seasonally, over spring, summer, autumn, and winter, inspired by China’s four seasons.

For our dinner, we had the 8 course Summer menu, which you can see below:
