Quiet and Tranquil Ambience for tea lovers

Check out the full photo review here at ande-anna.blogspot.com!


Located at one of the many shophouses under Singapore's conservation project, this tea house provides exactly what chinese tea lovers would love - the peace and tranquility for a few hours, be it for a quiet moment to communicate with your inner self, or for a relaxing moment with fellow tea lovers.   One thing to note though, if you are heading over during the weekends, be warned that the topmost level may be a tad noisy. In view of that, we opted for the second level (which requires a top-up amount of SGD5) when we pop by for the second time. 

I recalled that they did serve their own mini mooncake platter with chinese tea in 2012, but the staff told me that they have decided to discontinue that popular tea set, and the mooncakes are now available for sale on its own during mid-autumn festival.

When we were served our order, the staff checked with us whether it is our first visit, and if we need guidance in brewing tea. He then patiently run through the whole process with us, teaching us from brewing to appreciating tea. It is indeed a profound knowledge, as everytime I go there, I get to learn something new about chinese tea.

We ordered Superior Grade Longjing Tea, the well-acclaimed tea eggs (must-try!), tea jellies (eight treasures tea, osmanthus tea, and red bean tea), and tea cookies.

I would say that you may wish to just skip the tea cookies (dry and nothing extraordinary) and tea jellies (not bad, but don't really make you want to go back for more). Instead, just get the tea eggs, and choose your tea wisely!

Enjoy your inner zen moment there!

P.S. Don't expect your tea leaves to be in a huge pack. As tea leaves can be used and brewed a few times, your tea leaves of choice will arrive in a mini zip-lock sealed bag.

P.P.S. Try to make a reservation before going to avoid disappointment!

horrible service and exorbitant price

I was there on a Friday night with a couple of friends after dinner to celebrate one of my friend's birthday. We were a little late from the reserved time and when we stepped into the place, stating we made a reservation, the uncle mending the counter immediately said in chinese "what time is it

Great tea eggs!

See the full review here.

We brought my bf's folks to a 茶馆 for brunch – this one I visited with M about 4 years ago and remember it vividly for its excellent 茶叶蛋. Although the fact that 4 years later it’s still open is rather baffling. Is there really such a huge chinese tea drinking
