Hope this isn't a dead topic, but two tea places I will recommend in Singapore, both in Chinatown, are Enjoy Tea (18 Sago Street) and Pek Sin Choon (36 Mosque Street).

Take note, however, that since Pek Sin Choon mainly deals in wholesale, their store is very no-nonsense. Definitely not the place you'd want to go to if you're looking for a fancy set-up, but the tea is good and the boss is very amicable. You can get some really dang good stuff if you know what to ask for.

sunday and ph closed

This is probably the 4 th time they shifted and now located in a one of an old shophouses in central area.
The tea, tea wares and atmosphere is good but some customers find the items are highly priced. I think the higher price is justifiable as the boss travel and hand picked all items. The shop is also standalone, so if you visit the place, they know you make all the effort to go there, and not happen to pass by (which also means you lose your bargaining power and not excuse not to purchase). I think generally if you are highly regarded to be a spendthrift customer, willing to pay more to find special wares and look for good atmosphere, and being well served by the boss, then it is place to go. I enjoy the place personally having been there often and treated well by the boss, but some of my tea friends are intimidated by the place and price. So it is a personal experience kind of shop.

Cheers!
