Good host dont make good tea
Dec 2020 • Friends
Good ambience but the tea quality is only medicore. Longjing which taste like fried chicken is quite appalling to be honest. Longjing should be nutty and refreshing. Knowledge is also so so, for one, it was said that there is only 4 type of Chinese tea variety - incorrect.
Charlene is a good host, other than that, there are better quality tea leaf out there.

A lovely surprise!
Dec 2020
Decided to book a session with Yixing Xuan Teahouse as we were doing a staycation nearby and this experience has always been on my list.

Charlene was the one who conducted the session (in English), and supported by her dad, Vincent, and the famliy. Very informative session and we paid for the package to try 6 teas with dim sum.

A very worthwhile experience, and guess what? Chinese tea is really not as strict as what it seems!

We enjoyed the teas (of course!) and the dim sum, but what stayed vivid in my mind today is the information of the teas and the way to brew a cup! :)

An excellent way to learn about & enjoy wonderful teas
Jul 2020
The tea appreciation workshop was both fun & enlightening. Vincent's knowledge & delivery is excellent. Add to that the delicious teas & equally delicious snacks & it made for a great experience.

Such a lovely tea appreciation workshop experience
Feb 2020
We were so lucky to be accommodated last moment by Vincent and his lovely family and were given a proper master lesson in tea appreciation. Went from knowing very little to finally knowing what to order when going into a teahouse.

The tea was amazing, and the food was incredible. We were told the tea should be best appreciated without food, but the food pairing we got was some of the best we had in Singapore, so no regrets there.

Will definitely return or start ordering online from this little teahouse, as some of those teapots are so cute!

Thank you again for a very lovely experience in Singapore!

The Fine Art of Tea
Feb 2020
My husband and I spent a couple of hours at Yixing Xuan Teahouse with Charlene, learning the history and art of making the perfect pot of tea. A fascinating way to relax and spend time in Chinatown.

We look forward to continuing the practice back in Australia.

HIghly recommended
Jan 2020
My daughter and I spent a wonderful couple of hours here, learning about tea and trying our hand at pouring for ourselves. We were made to feel very welcome, and the shop is a lovely place to be. My favourite was the black tea and now that I am back home in Scotland, I am enjoying the tea that I brought home with me. A little taste of Singapore in Glasgow. Would definitely recommend this experience, and I hope to visit again.

I and my husband booked one hour tea appreciation workshop and we loved it. We learned so much new about tea. Vincent, the owner of the place, is a great storyteller, and a tea expert. Once you enter the place, you enter the different world, full of tea magic. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone, who drinks tea daily, your life will not be the same.

tea appreciation workshop
Jun 2019 • Solo
its always reassuring to find a place where excellence in an art is truly appreciated and pursued with passion.
go into this house and sit with vincent or one of his daughters a while and let them unfold the story of tea for you. grow a deeper understanding of the culture behind chinese tea, and appreciate the knowledge you will learn to bring this simple healthy pleasure into your life everday.

i loved spending my morning in the shop with vincent, and would encourage experts and novices alike to visit them.
if you did not know what makes tea special then go find out...

Gem in Tanjong Pagar
May 2019 • Friends
I make this a regular place to visit when I am around Tanjong Pagar, excellent selection of Chinese teas and tea wares, but this is not what makes me come back every time.
Vincent, and his daughter Charlene are the most hospitable people one can come across, explaining and guiding you while you shopping, but never trying to make you buy more than you want.
A family business at its very best, well worth a little detour if you are in Singapore, the tea appreciation classes are very informative and give an excellent overview of Chinese teas and how to brew them.
