Yumchaa symbolises all things quiet and beautiful in this world. Advocating a gorgeous cup of loose-leaf tea enjoyed with friends while figuring out the meaning of life, Yumchaa strongly disagrees with tea-bagging and insists that tea is nothing, or at least very little, without time.
The name of this tea loving company comes from the urge to promote tea (Chaa) that is really great (yum). With a tiny but beautiful shop in Camden Lock Market, stalls at any market in London really worth calling a market, and the recent addition of a cafe in the heart of Soho, Yumchaa ensures that no Londoner will ever have to settle for tea-bagging ever again. Yumchaa's selection of loose-leaf teas covers all colours imaginable, and there is something for all tastes. Spicy, healthy, Christmassy, milky or black - Yumchaa offers the best quality tea of its kind.
With old, wooden chairs that have been hand-sanded for three days, brownies that are truly to die for (and dangerously addictive), views over the canal boats, food stalls and vintage shops of the West Yard of Camden Lock Market, and a sign across the brick wall spelling out "Legalise Tea", Camden's Yumchaa is the perfect place to write the first chapter of your soon-to-be best-selling novel or reminisc with old friends over a nice cuppa. Any of the Yumchaa spots are also partial to a debate about the the big question: Milk first or milk last? And finally, if you simply cannot get rid of the colleague who insists on getting giddy from five cups of coffee black as tar... well, Yumchaa won't let you down. Let's just say that they know better. But why preach to the converted?
