Sneaky Add On Cost (No sharing of tea/ non refillable)

According to the website, the year 1837 is to celebrate when the island became a trading post for teas, spices and fine epicurean products. The brand was only established in 2008. Kind of misleading people to think that it has a long history and branding. 

Anyway, that aside, it was my first visit to this tea salon. But this will definitely be my last if I have the choice to choose a location to catch up over overpriced tea. 

The ambience was alright, nice, bright and elegant looking. But the tables were set a bit too close for comfort. You will probably be able to join in the conversation the next table is having. The glass wall makes it seem like a giant fish bowl and keeps the noise inside. 

So we picked the hi-tea set that comes with tea, canapes and petit four. They are famous for their tea. With a range of about 800 over types. So we asked for recommendation. The service staff rattled on, "do you like white, black, blue, green, red or floral tea?" we said we'd like floral. then he went on, but we were already lost by the variety. He brought 2 tins to let us smell before deciding. We did mention that we wanted to share one set and when the staff repeated our order, everything seemed normal. Then he came back to say that as our selection is considered a premium range and have to top up around $6 for it. We agreed and the food was served, together with 2 pots of tea.
The food was normal, nothing great or worth mentioning as nothing really stood out.

When the bill came, the top up for the premium tea was $9.50. The extra pot of tea was charge at $20.50 ($11+$9.50 premium). To me, I was prepared to pay that $6 for the premium tea, but definitely not an extra $24++. Apparently there is a no sharing of tea policy that the staff didn't communicate to us and we only found out about it at the end of the meal.

Oh, the tea, it is non refillable. They steep the tea, fill it in the pot and that's it. I've gone to other places to have tea, all of which are refillable and less pricey. 

Should have read reviews before going, if I had known, I would rather spend my money in other places that serve tea with better food and no hidden cost.

Have you tried TWG's macarons? If you have not, you are missing out. My favourite is the lemon flavour which I could not remember the name. not to forget their tea is very soothing after a heavy meal. The must order is the Singapore Surprise slice of cake. For me, I was in cloud 9 when I tried that. No doubt will def recommend to friends.
