TEA BONE ZEN MIND sits on Emerald Hill in two three-storey shophouses built at the turn of the 20th Century by wealthy Chinese and Straits-Chinese merchants as a fashionable abode. Like the beautiful mix of Art-Deco and Chinese Baroque architecture in these conserved shophouses, a visit with us ensures a tea experience that seamlessly blends old-world charm with modern aesthetics, familiar tastes with new aromas, gourmet treats with street fare.
For more than two decades, we have been quietly leading a tea renaissance in Singapore. Our founder, Carrie Chen is a world authority on tea and tea culture. She scours the earth for fine quality Chinese, Japanese and English teas and artisanal tea ware, creating her own blends, and pairing them beautifully with exquisite foods to be appreciated on-premise, or taken home by our guests.
TEA BONE ZEN MIND is conceived for casual tea drinker and connoisseur alike. One shophouse is specially designed with its koi pond and private rooms for tranquil afternoon tea samplings with friends and family, while the other shophouse, with our very own museum and tatami rooms cater exclusively to aficionados looking for the old and rare – be it old matcha or pu er white mountain tea.
But casual or connoisseur, a TEA BONE ZEN MIND experience is always about beauty in taste and smell. It’s about conversations, meeting people, having a dialogue. Appreciating beauty. As an elderly customer told us many years ago, “I see beautiful things every day, that’s why I live such a long life.”
At TEA BONE ZEN MIND, we welcome people of all cultures and nationalities from the four corners of the world. They would be greeted by our own tea enthusiasts, Caroline, Sai Ngoh, or even our founder herself, Carrie. Most times, you will find them engaged in rich conversations, answering questions, or simply sharing an anecdote or two about their own colourful journeys with tea.
Helping our guests experience tea in the most tasteful, and often pleasantly surprising ways, is what our team live for. After all, not a day goes by without us making a good pot of tea for ourselves, and dreaming up new and exciting ways to pair them with foods from the world. In doing so, we aim to at once broaden and enrich your experience with tea.
Each member of our team undergoes intensive training on the varieties of tea, flavours and foods that we serve, and the artisanal tea ware that we have commissioned with renowned artists in Asia. By the time we greet you at our door, we would be ready to bring our unique vision of the perfect tea experience to your table.
