Another short and sweet post about tea…..YumchaaPosted: September 22, 2011
It would be a crime not to mention Yumchaa which, after moving out of London 2 years ago, I stumbled upon just the other day. It can only be described as a little piece of quiet, tea loving, heaven and when visited on a Sunday morning whilst nursing quite a substantial hangover, it proved the perfect tonic.
Not your regular Soho cafe cuppa, there are a myriad blends to choose from all displayed in little white cups laid out along the counter. Had my head been able to make any kind of decision, I would have smelt and perused for hours but instead I just simply asked which one contained Hibiscus, which I know under any circumstance makes a delicious drink. I was quickly presented with the prettiest pile of tea ingredients I ever did see and the deal was done.
2 minutes later I was sitting comfortably in a window seat enjoying my hot, freshly brewed medicine and it worked a treat. Had I not just devoured a Pret baguette (such a silly choice), I would have happily consumed one of their very tasty looking cakes and stayed there all morning. It’s been a long time since I found somewhere which made me smile like Yumchaa.
