Yumchaa teashop in London

Three weeks ago we visited London and the one of the highlights of my trip was visiting the Yumchaa tea shop in Soho. We walked to the tea shop from the Reagent’s park with some help from our mobile phone maps. It was a sunny day and everyone were pretty exhausted after the little walk, so we did not feel like having hot tea. In the tea shop, we noticed that they sell also ice tea which sounded great, however, I did not expect to be able to choose from their wide variety of tea. To my surprise, ordering any tea that they sold as ice tea was possible as they use a special tea filter for creating the ice tea. The secret is brewing the hot tea and using ice in a special filter to cool it down. They even sell the filter for doing this in the tea shop, however, when we visited, they had ran out. Maybe next time! We tried out four different kinds of teas and bought three bags of tea to take home with us. All the teas were super yummy! The atmosphere was great too and they played alternative rock music (rather soft but not mainstream) in the background when we were there. I’ll definitely go again when in London. * * * * *
