Experience Tastings, Workshops, and More at These 12 Singapore Teahouses

Experience Tastings, Workshops, and More at These 12 Singapore Teahouses

The art of tea is a very sacred thing, and while there are many tea houses around the city, we’ve hunted down the best in the business.

Learn all about tea pouring, experience tea tasting workshops, or simply indulge yourself in premium tea flavours and blends from around the world at the tea houses featured below!

1. Excusez-moi, may I take your order please?: Antea Social

We can’t quite decide if we feel like we’re on the streets of Paris or Tokyo, but whichever way you feel, we’re loving this dreamy teahouse – and all of its pastel and minimalist interiors included.

You’ll find a curated selection of both hot and cold artisanal teas on their menu (and scrumptious slices of cake), and they also offer custom tea blending.

 We also love how informative the experience is here, and when ordering any tea off of their menu, you’ll learn about its taste profile, country of origin, and the type of tea leaves that you’ve selected.

2. A celebration of Chinese Baroque architecture and premium teas: Tea Bone Zen Mind

Don’t be fooled by the exterior, this isn’t a residential home (even though to get inside the Teahouse you will need to ring the front doorbell). Once inside, become mesmerised by what almost feels more like a gallery than a teahouse.

Tea tastings are done in private rooms, accompanied by a selection of food and are only available via bookings (they don’t accept walk-ins).
