Hello! I am a tea artist practising the art of brewing and appreciating Chinese tea. At my tea studio Tanah dan Air, I conduct workshops and private tea classes for various age groups in a bid to promote the value of tea in bringing people together.

If you’ve ever been interested in the world of tea and not sure where to start, then this is the perfect place for you.

Where you'll be

My tea studio is located in Happy Mansion, nestled within a charming residential neighborhood in Petaling Jaya. The block is an apartment built in the #70s, and the tea studio is at the ground floor with ample parking spaces. The studio is designed to be cozy and welcoming, decorated with personal collection of antiques as well as memorabilia from travels overseas.

It was great to experience a traditional tea ceremony, and accompanied by Fei's expert knowledge, a cozy studio and some meandering chitchat, it made for a very pleasant experience. The tea ceremony process brings out a good range of flavours and I was able to really appreciate the subtleties of the tea.

If you have any interest in Chinese tea culture, this experience would be suitable first step. Actually in Mainland China there must be so many tea culture prefessionals, but we hardly see good teacher with English explanations. Tea class time is too short, but it will be enough to know the surface of whole tea cultures.

The experience was amazing. Snowfei is really nice and patient. She is very pationate about tea and she was very helpful, answering all our questions. The shop is beautifully decorated and it's located in a very quiet and residential area which is great for getting to know a different part of Kuala Lumpur. I would definitely recommend it!

I enjoyed the session tremendously. It was very relaxing, and the place was cozy. We managed to appreciate tea while learning about types of tea and the methods of brewing. Siowfei shared the learning in a very welcoming way and was very open to discussing her thoughts and experiences. I would definitely return for more classes with Siowfei.

Everything was awesome! Siowfei did an amazing job. Seeing her passion, and love to what she do, is really inspires. 100% recommend this experience, come, explore, taste! P.S. Before the beginning I had issue with finding the location, and Siowfei personally came after me and took me to the place. Thanks for that!!
