What you'll do
This tour allows the participant to look at Singapore through a different lens. Using a common beverage such as tea to bind the various stops together, it is a refreshing way to tell the story of Singapore. Watch this video, and feel your excitement starting to brew! https://vimeo.com/307707990 To start the day, you will have breakfast in an old shophouse. Enjoy your first taste of a local breakfast tea, accompanied with a traditional Singaporean breakfast. At the 2nd stop, visit an old Chinese tea-house and learn about the production process from leaf to cup. You will get to try your hand at wrapping tea leaves, the traditional Chinese way, and complete this stop with a cup of refreshing Nanyang tea. Our 3rd stop is an old muslim restaurant where we will have some "Teh Tarik", a tea introduced by Indian-Muslim immigrants. Be fascinated by the process of tea “pulling” back and forth between 2 cups to create a froth at the top. It’s like making a Cappuccino, but with tea! The final leg of the tour will take you to a modern tea atelier. Here, you will participate in a blending workshop where you get to blend your own tea flavour! Leave with a wonderful souvenir from us.
I am the founder of a local travel company that aims to have people love Singapore just a little more. Having designed tour programmes in Singapore for the past year, i realised that there are so many better ways to discover this beautiful country. While a typical walking tour would provide great value to any traveller, an Experiential tour will bring you deep into the heart of the city, and create memorable experiences through interaction with locals! You'll see and hear things you never would on a typical city tour. I hope to create more wonderful experiences as a way of sharing Singapore's unique culture and identity.
