Happening on the 21st of May

Antea Social

Antea Social's teahouse is the definition of minimalist zen made modern-- the space is illuminated by a combination of natural sunlight and decorative paper lanterns, and is accented with light wood furnishings that inject warmth into its interiors. An all-around relaxing place to sip some of their signature tea blends or try their house-brewed kombucha.

Address: 9 Tyrwhitt Rd, Singapore 207528

Silk Tea Bar

The meditative ambience of Silk Tea Bar is a welcoming presence amidst the hustle and bustle of the metropolis that is Singapore. Tucked amidst rows of shophouses at Sago Street, in the heart of Chinatown, the tea bar serves as the perfect space to sit and take a breather after a hectic week. Remember to reserve your spot if you're planning to visit on the weekends.

Address: 26A Sago St, Singapore 059021

Asaru Studio

Not quite a full-fledged teahouse, Asaru Studio considers themselves "a "retrospective studio", featuring understated homeware pieces from Japan and Denmark in their retail space. Book the U c h i appointment on their website to tour the studio and view their goods in person, and experience an intimate tea session complete with Japanese snacks and confectionaries.

Address: 24A Bali Ln, Singapore 189860

With numerous branches across the island, it is no secret that Hvala has become one of Singapore's favourite tea spots, particularly for matcha and houjicha lovers. While the Japanese-inspired interiors and aromatic tea blends soothe the soul, Hvala is definitely more of a place to meet new minds and hold meaningful conversations at, rather than sit in silence-- a place to make new memories over a cup of ceremonial-grade matcha and a slice of goma cake.

This last entry is one shrouded in mystery. This hidden nook will be opening on the 21st of May itself, and features few opening dates to visit and experience the space. What little information available about the nook online is featured on their Instagram page, @________.min (that's 8 underscores). If you're a fan of new experiences and quiet moments, shoot them a Direct Message on Instagram to book an appointment this weekend.

Address: Boon Keng
