Say no to tea-bagging and pay a visit to Soho’s best little tea shop.
This unique café (and its sister branch in Camden) is situated in the heart of Soho and celebrates loose-leaf tea; there isn’t a tea bag in sight. A huge selection of loose tea on the counter invites you to try their innovative blends, with imaginative titles such as ‘Walk in The Woods‘ and ‘Chilli Chilli Bang Bang‘.
Yumchaa has a wide selection of black, green, white and Rooibos tea, so pretty much something for everyone. With ample seating upstairs and downstairs, this adorable place is perfect for a pit-stop if your shopping on neighbouring Oxford Street or in the Soho area. I always opt for the ‘Notting Hill‘ despite promising myself I’ll try something different each time.
Each tea is displayed on the counter so make sure you have a sniff around before making that all-important selection; there’s also a good selection of snacks to go with your beverage. Try the gluten-free chocolate cake if that’s your bag; I love the lemon-drizzle cake which is absolutely delicious.
