Vincent, the patriarch of the family, turned his back on a successful career in banking to pursue his passion for tea. This passion is evident as he shares his encyclopedic knowledge of traditional tea and tea making with anyone willing to sit and listen. Do yourself a favor and stop by to sample some of the best teas in Singapore.

The teahouse isn't in the most tourist-y of areas, and when we visited there was no one inside, but I'm so glad we went. The tea is delicious, the staff were amazingly friendly, and the food was to die for. Make sure you buy the Green Tea Pancakes, they were INCREDIBLE.
Very lovely place, next time I'm in Singapore, I'll be repaying them a visit!

I am so happy that I found this tea house on TripAdvisor!. I had a one-on-one session with Charlene, who was very knowledgeable, very nice, and overall very helpful. I really appreciated that I was not pressured at any point to buy anything and, when I decided to buy, was shown a variety of products at various price points. Also, before arriving, I emailed a list of my dietary restrictions (I have a lot) to the tea house and they were able to tailor the menu to me. The food was delicious! Even if you are not interested in the workshop, go for the food. I will definitely go back on my next trip.

Went mid week at 2pm. Very quiet just one other couple there. The ladies were very helpful and polite in helping us choose both tea and nibbles, but definitely not the over view of tea ceremonies etc offered to others. Still we enjoyed what we had, reasonably priced, but not he education we had hoped for.
