Karismatic Karma Kettle

I’ve been wanting to check out a tea room for awhile and I’m so glad that yesterday I was able to check out Karma Kettle!

Incredibly impressed with the quality and commitment to authentic tea that this maintains along with ample flavours on offering. Located at 4 Swinhoe Street (near Tasty Corner), this place reflects a welcoming and friendly vibe to all. Wonderful atmosphere and wooden decor. They are so natural and feel so back-to-earth.The transparent-roof model offers unique and so cottage-looks-like with lots of natural light. DSC_0337DSC_0202DSC_0204


As a first time attendee of a real tea room, I found the vibe a delightful mix of a local coffee shop and a specialty wholesale experience. In addition to their cafe, they have a dedicated room for display of various tea which comes in different size and shape of packaging with some fascinating designer tea set and crockeries which make some one to fall in love with and pack some tea to brew at home. DSC_0321DSC_0328DSC_0329DSC_0330

It’s a little cozy so no big purses hanging on the back of your chair or people will be knocking into you for your whole visit. There are a million teas here so, depending on your taste, you’re likely taken care of. And there are a ton of tea-related knick knacks ready for you to choose your flavour or purchase during your visit. So make sure to bring a little extra bucks (or not) for cute tea-related paraphernalia for your own home.DSC_0241DSC_0238DSC_0237DSC_0226DSC_0223DSC_0219DSC_0218DSC_0217DSC_0216DSC_0214DSC_0213DSC_0211
