Singapore’s President Tony Tan and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long are some of the big names that were impressed by his art and knowledge, as well as the members of the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce, Citibank, the Ministry of Manpower and the Ministry of Defence.
Tea Chapter started as a small joint venture headed by 13 tea enthusiasts on 1 October 1989. Through a fortunate twist of fate, they came across the chance to experience a proper Chinese tea ceremony through a Taiwanese friend. Not long after they were captivated by this beautiful and unique art, Tea Chapter was born.
The Name “茶渊” came from our mission “茶学渊博，茶文化源远流长”, which translates to “be knowledgeable in Tea and promoting the culture of Tea”. While our English name “Tea Chapter” meant opening new chapters to the tea culture.
In the effort to preserve culture and heritage, Tea Chapter decided to rent a shophouse at Tanjong Pagar area which was part of Singapore’s conservation project.
Not long after the establishment of Tea Chapter, we were visited by a very important guest, Queen Elizabeth II. The light fermented Oolong from Fu Jian, soon became our signature tea to serve various VIPs. Among those who have tried our imperial golden cassia are Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long, President Tony Tan, Former President S.R Nathan and many other famous figures.
During the initial years of business, tea chapter operated at the 2nd and 3rd floors of 9 Neil Road. After several years of hardships and countless cultural events, Tea Chapter expanded into new grounds. Tea Chapter is currently the biggest tea house in Singapore, selling everything from tea leaves to tea wares and even tea books. Moreover, Tea Chapter has also became a big name in Tea Appreciation education over the years, providing workshops to over a hundred schools and having more than ten thousand students coming to our tea house to learn the art of Tea every year.
Mission & Vision
To promote awareness on Heritage, Culture and Philosophy to our local Singaporean community, the younger generation and our foreign friends through the appreciation of Tea and Fine arts.

A nice compact place to spend time with friends and family. Good selection of tea with a quiet environment and service was excellent.The aroma and taste of the tea was more than exceptional. A must go place if you are a longing for something different from the usual cafes.
Thank you for keeping the tea culture alive tea chapter!!

When visiting from Australia, this is the only place I come to have a traditional Chinese tea experience. Tea chapter has set the standards high with incredibly fragrant tea, beautiful tea sets, immaculate service and a range of traditional seating arrangements.
Make sure to give yourself a few hours to fully relax and enjoy the experience!

We met some friends for an afternoon at The Tea Chapter. It was a lovely experience learning the art of a Chinese tea ceremony, from choosing a tea, readying the pot/cups, pouring, smelling, and tasting. We also had some dumplings and cookies to accompany our tea. A little something different to do in touristy Singapore. Of course there is a shop downstairs where you can buy all the equipment and tea to take with you if you’re that way inclined.
