The sticky date pudding was good (as usual) but the chai was a huge disappointment! Prana chai is quite a good blend but for some reason this tasted like milk and honey with some spice from the cinnamon stick. If you look at the picture, it’s really light like milk and it basically never got any darker. Such a pity honestly

We were really excited to try this one, but sadly some of the dishes fell short.

The good:
- the crab sandwich with tomato bread tasted like a pizza and I quite liked it!
- Earl grey macaron was flavourful
- mochi tasted authentic
- yudachi tart provided citrus notes that made the sweets feel a bit refreshing (though I feel the cream on top tempered the citrus notes a bit too much)
- the sparkling tea was light and fruity

The bad:
- smoked trout sandwich tasted like smoked salmon on white bread. I didn’t get the wasabi flavour either
- moist chocolate cake was not moist and the chocolate tasted very light
- marbled cheesecake was meh (and we didn’t really see the marbling). Think my fav part of the marble cheesecake was the chocolate swirl on top.

Overall, while I enjoyed the concept and some elements of the tea, the execution of the others could have been improved

We came here for the afternoon tea and really enjoyed it! The food was all very good (especially the sesame puff and pistachio tart) and the amount was just right. We initially thought it wouldn’t be enough, but we were wrong.

Just one piece of advice: book the earliest slot you can get (3pm, ideally). Skai was pretty strict about everybody leaving at 5pm so if you come at 4ish you might end up having to rush.

This was pretty pricey (moreso than MBS or Fullerton’s afternoon tea) but the food is great and the views are amazing

My first cheese tea! I liked that they used a lot of strawberries, yet the taste of the tea was still there. I’m not sure if the cheese was needed, but it wasn’t unpleasant. It’s expensive but I find myself wanting more.

I’ve been wanting to try more bubble teas from here since I had their amazing bubble tea soft serve. So when I went past their Suntec store, I had to stop and get myself their tie guan yin tea latte. Even though the sugar level was at 50% (the lowest), the tea wasn’t overly sweet and the natural taste of tea was allowed the shine. The milk added a nice touch of creaminess. Loved it!

Came here for the afternoon tea! The scones weren’t that good, but the sweets and savouries more than made up for it. I liked that the savouries were part of a buffet, so after you finish what’s on the tiers, you can go and get more (I ate so much smoked salmon and the cheese+crackers). The sweets were really good too, and everything went well with the tea.

The tea is from TWG, so it’s pretty much what you expect. Quite a large selection and you get to change flavours every new pot.

My friends and I spent a leisurely two hours here, just eating and chatting.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a single-origin tea at cafe! The taste was very light and slightly sweet at first, but gradually grew more vegetal and umami as it cooled down. Pretty good and a nice change from the usual teas found in cafes!

I saw this the minute I entered T2 from the mrt and had to buy it. The ice-cream tastes like bubble tea, with a soft, creamy texture. The pearls are soft and chewy and go perfectly with the ice-cream.

This is definitely bubble milk tea in ice cream form! Would recommend to anyone who’s going to the airport.

I thought the brown sugar was only going to be in the jelly but it turns out that they put it in the milk tea! If you like that kind of stuff, I think you’ll enjoy this, but I always feel that brown sugar in drinks gives it a bit of a burnt taste for some reason. The jelly, though, was really good and I enjoyed it. They didn’t ask me what sugar level I wanted so I’m not sure what this is but it wasn’t too sweet (thankfully).

First time trying aged Japanese Oolong! It’s an interesting experience because the first taste is less oolong and more nutty of the notes. It’s only as the tea cools down that the floral notes become stronger, making this a tea to be savoured slowly.

This is definitely one of the most unusual teas I’ve seen in Singapore and I definitely want to come back to try their other teas!

Finally got to try my matcha doughnut! It’s got a very rich matcha taste, and I can even taste a bit of the umami flavour from the tea! The doughnut itself is very fluffy and a little chewy and I really like this texture.

My only ‘complaint’ is that it’s a little on the small side, but that can be remedied by buying more (;

Went to Geometry after lunch today and saw that they had Genmaicha ($3.90)!!!! I tried it and it really tasted like the ice-cream version of the actual drink - smooth green tea with toasted rice. The texture was rich and smooth and I polished my cup off in no time.

A definite must-try for all tea lovers!

Give me all the tea (and sweets and Japanese food)
