This little oasis of calm as well as good tea. This is a must for anyone who likes tea. Maybe you don't like tea, but if that's the case, are you making the tea the right way? We spent a very enjoyable hour here, sampling so many teas as well as seeing demonstrations go making the tea as well as... More

I have been back to Time of Tea a few months ago and can report that they are as good as ever. Bel Jean's tea is a first quality and her recommendations should be followed. They have moved to a new location which I am looking forward visiting on my next trip to Singapore: 53 Chin Swee Road #03-11 Singapore... More

After reading the reviews, my husband and myself made The Time of Tea a "must do" whilst we were in Singapore and we were not disappointed. We sat down in this beautiful tea shop, whilst relaxing music played and was treated to an array of teas such as Green, Oolong, Yellow, White....followed by delicious traditional tea biscuits. Beijean was a... More

My 11yo daughter and I were on a 2-day stopover in Singapore. Headed straight to Chinatown, and we got SO lucky. We came across a tea house called The Time of Tea that offered lessons in the ancient--very serious!--art of tea ceremony. They had several students in there working, but they were so gracious about serving us some tea and... More

Time of Tea moved from Lucky Plaza to Mosque Street in Chinatown. They have so much more room and are more wonderful than ever. It is one of the few places you can stop in to chat about tea. But more importantly, you can taste teas of excellent quality. I believe that they have the highest quality tea in Singapore.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
