Our Story

It all began with a market stall…


Yumchaa began out of necessity. Although tea is the drink that fuels England, we struggled to find a decent brew anywhere in London! Fed up with tasteless, low grade tea bags served badly, we set out on a mission to bring England the tea it deserves. We travelled the world looking for inspiration, blending and brewing until we dropped and of course drinking many, many cups of tea.

In 2004, we set up a Yumchaa market stall which quickly became a haven for tea lovers to talk tea, try tea and buy tea. Determined to rid the world of mediocre cups of tea, we now have an online shop which ships our blends to our tasty tea lovers worldwide.
