The tea appreciation session with Vincent was great. He is so knowledgable and fun to listen to. I thought I knew about tea but I was so wrong. It's a great talk, a great dim sum lunch and a great shop.
Thank you Charlene for making it so easy to arrange!

Thank Susan D

We had a very informative session with Charlene and her Tea Appreciation. She is quite knowledgable and speaks very passionately and eloquently about tea. Her session will likely dispel all that you think you knew about tea; as well the dim sims are wonderful. A must see whilst in Singapore. Thank you Charlene!

Recently, I discovered this tea shop. It has some of the best teas in Asia, certainly the best in Singapore. The shop is small, very clean, very comfortable. What makes this shop really shine is the outstanding customer service. The owners are very friendly, professional, incredibly knowledgable,and very helpful.

I bought tea while there. When I returned home to the USA, my wife and I loved the tea so much, we ordered more. The owner responded to my email request rapidly and was very helpful at sending me just the teas we ordered.

Highest recommendation.

I visited the teahouse with my mother for the tea demonstration and dim sum lunch. Our host, Charlene, was charming and very knowledgeable. We learnt a lot and gained a new appreciation of tea. This also has to be one of the best value 'experiences' in Singapore.

The owner's daughter was very thorough and knowledgeable. She was also very patient in explaining and allowing us to try the various teas.

Prices tend to be on the high side. You can do much better buying in Taiwan.
