Visited Yixing Xuan on friends recommendation and it was a pleasant surprise! Tea tasting is very different from the normal coffee appreciation and it's worth a try to understand how to "taste" and "feel" the tea. One of the rare shops that sells good quality...More

I am a coffee and wine drinker but this workshop was still very interesting and fun. The teacher was very engaging, knowledgeable and made the workshop very interesting. I would definitely bring my family and friends over to see this workshop when they visit Singapore.
