My boyfriend and I had a very inspiring and interesting tea talk and tea lesson with Mr Vincent Low. Amongst many things, we learned about the four different tea types, and how to distinguish fresh and old tea. Mr Vincent really took the time, and was very passionate about the story of tea.

My friend and I decided to embrace the tea caper as I am a coffee drinker and my friend had not tried too many teas. There was only the two of us and Charlene, Vincent's daughter was just fantastic. We learnt the basics which was just great, loved the little cups and especially the teapots. I could certainly taste and... More

Informative and enlightening tea appreciation workshop conducted by the owner, Vincent. Very affordable prices too, especially compared to nearby Tea Chapter which has better ambience but is far more pricey. I think the shop is moving from its 30 Tanjong Pagar location, which is a bit drab -- but I actually liked the interior, it's simple and old school, uncrowded,... More

Already a fan of tea, the workshop at the Yixing Xuan Teahouse deepened my appreciation of chinese tea. We had the pleasure of learning from Charlene all there is to know about chinese tea while sampling some of the high quality tea the shop has to offer. A must do, even if you are not a big fan of tea!

Mrs. H and I were hungry and wanted a spot of Tea and a bit of dim sum before hitting the Markets. I got an education from the owner's Daughter who sat with us and explained the differences in Pu-Erh tea, one of my favorites. We also ordered a sweet Bean Paste pancake which was delicious. We bought some Dragon... More

On an unassuming street, a few stops on the bus away from ChinaTown there is a small tea shoppe. And in this shoppe, which is tucked away behind a bus stop, and which you could easily miss if you didn't know what you were looking for, there is something very special: a family run business with a deep passion for...

A friend organised this tea tasting for us whilst we were visiting Singapore. A lovely way to spend a couple of hours. We enjoyed listening to the history of tea and also had the dim sum lunch. I would recommend paying extra and having something to eat, it really was worth it.

My husband and I enjoyed tea tasting and lunch with Charlene on Easter Saturday having been recommended to try it by a work colleague. One of us is a coffee fan and the other favours good old fashioned English Breakfast tea so we were not sure what to expect. I think we may now have been converted! Charlene was so... More

We brought 12 University students from various backgrounds who were studying some aspect of cultural research. Vince did a 1 hour workshop for us that was fantastic.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful 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.
