A burgeoning tribe of young Singaporeans, keen to slow down and pursue a healthier lifestyle, have come to enjoy Chinese tea culture.

Meet some of these hobbyists and watch as they demonstrate the detailed and elegant art of tea-making in the finals of an annual challenge run by tea retailer Pek Sin Choon. Pek Sin Choon is one of Singapore's oldest tea merchants with roots going back to 1925. Its Nanyang tea mixes comprise a blend of tea from the north and south of Fujian. Today, its tea leaves continue to be roasted in-house and wrapped in pink paper.

The fourth edition of the competition requires participants to pair a Nanyang tea blend with a local cuisine.


Pek Sin Choon Pte Ltd

Pek Sin Choon Pte Ltd has a history of over 96 years in Singapore as a retailer of tea leaves. It was established in 1925 by the late Mdm Zhuang together with her son Mr Pek Kim Au. It is one of the oldest tea merchant in Singapore and the “Cowherd Boy On Buffalo” trademark has been its symbol of quality Chinese Tea ever since. The Company is one of the remaining few tea merchants in Singapore which blended their own tea leaves using the traditional method, including the unique Singapore blend, Nanyang Tea.
