Teahouse in Chinatown & the CBD

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip dropped by this tranquil teahouse in 1989, and for S$10 you can sit at the table they sipped at. A minimum charge of S$8 per person will get you a heavenly pot of loose-leaf tea, prepared with traditional precision. The selection is excellent and the adjoining shop sells tea and a selection of beautiful tea sets.

Want to take your tea tasting to a new level? Book a tea appreciation package (from S$70 for two people), either the 'fragrance and aroma' or 'shades of tea', and become a tea master.
