Say no to tea-bagging and pay a visit to Soho’s best little tea shop.
This unique café chain is situated in the heart of Soho and celebrates loose-leaf tea; there isn’t a tea bag in sight. A huge selection of teas on the counter invite 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 you’re 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 before making that all-important selection; there’s also a good range 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.
