Tea chapter is a hidden gem. Despite its central location, once you enter the shop and especially when you to the tea house on the second floor, it feels like time slows down. The tea is also really, really good. It might seem pricey, with a minimum beverage spend of about $8 on my last visit, but it is worth the price.

First, once you order, you are welcome, even encouraged, to linger. Tea is meant to be savoured, not rushed. And each satchet of tea is good for multiple brews, and you can easily spend an hour drinking in the atmosphere. Second, you are getting a premium cup of tea, and especially when shared, it is worth paying for.

If you even have a mild interest in venturing past the tea bag, Tea Chapter is the perfect place to start your journey.

There is a very traditional and authentic feel to this tea house and even Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip had tea here.

The selection of teas is very good and they take great care and patience in explaining the traditions around drinking tea. It was a great learning experience and even our young children loved it. We also had some food with our tea and the dimsum were among the best we had in Singapore!

The location is currently a bit obstructed by work going on in Neil Road, but access to the shop is available.

We were also told that the tea shop may be closed for some renovation work between the end of May and some time in July 2018, so if you are visiting within this period, it may be advisable to check by calling beforehand. One hopes that the renovations do not affect the current charming character too much!

It is always my favourite hangout spot for bonding as the environment with authentic Zen ambience, I love the Signature food prepared with tea. I love interacting with the staffs as they are friendly and knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend friends from all over the world to visit and enjoy quality bonding with friends and families as there are board games and cards games for selection.

This is a great place to experience the Chinese tea ceremony. The staff is happy to explain the teas on the menu and to demonstrate how to brew the tea, after that you can try it yourself. The biscuits are delicious as well!
