For once, it might be worth it to forsake your beauty steep. Singapore Tea Festival 2018 returns with over 35 tea merchants, 300 different products, interactive tea workshops, and exciting technology powered by teapasar. As the world’s first global omni-channel marketplace powered by machine learning taste prediction technology, creating a free profile on their website entitles you to access to their tea database, ProfilePrint and Taste Map.

What’s cool is that the taste profile algorithm delivers your tea preferences and you get to try the different variants at the festival itself! Any tea aficionado will swoon over some of the more unique tea brands, such as the homegrown Pin Tea, cheeky Pekoe & Imp, and ladies’ favourite: The Tea Depot; while secret hipsters will want to check out Fizzicle’s Junboocha for all-natural, double shots of life.
