TEA PARTY

17 Apr 2017 By

Eccentrically British outlet Oxwell & Co offers its latest blends, tea-infused cocktails, on its rooftop garden bar. But you have to work hard to get it.

If you fancy a cuppa, you’ll have to earn it. To get at Oxwell & Co’s latest offering – tea-infused cocktails – you’ll have to climb a substantial number of flights of stairs to get to their Garden Bar on the rooftop. Yes, climb. There’s no elevator in this old four-storey heritage shophouse. But once you’re up here, the view of Chinatown is rather lovely, as is the greenery in the garden.

So then, what’s on the menu?

Gingerly Does It: Peppermint-infused Hendrick’s Gin, ginger syrup and amargo bitters.

Ripe Time: Hendrick’s Gin, mango and pandan black tea syrup, lemon juice, rosemary.

Chamomile High Club: Hendrick’s Gin, honey chamomile and lavender tea syrup, lemon juice, mint.

Taken as a whole, the tea cocktails (cockteals?) are light, friendly and way too easy to drink. There’s little to separate them – as the tea isn’t steeped for too long to get a fuller flavour. It’s a fine start to the evening, made all the more so by the charming cups it’s served in. Which is preferred? Whatever you’re in the mood for. 

All $22/glass, $85/tea set (serves 4).

The view, by the way, is quite nice.

The bar program at the Warehouse Hotel lobby is inspired by its naughty history, but it's also innovative and fun (so yeah, no reinterpretation of the Sling). What should you look out for?
