A great stop to grab a tea or coffee after a nice walk around Camden. My only complaint was that I prefer my Americano a bit stronger, but other than that it is a great place to chill for a bit.

On a rainy sunday morning in camden, we chose this place as somewhere to chill and have the first hot drink of the day. Place seemed nice enough: chilled out with some nice soft music. Got our drinks and straight away, I could see the coffee was not going to be good. It looked instant. Tasted it and I have... More

My friend and me go to Yumchaa tea quite often after a busy work day just to relax and have a nice cup of tea. We love that you can smell the different types of the in a sample cup before ordering. Also they have nice cakes and cupcakes and we also like the decorations which is completely mixed and... More

These is a great spot for those that love the ambience of coffee shop, but prefer tea instead. Great place to hang out, work and drink some great variety of quality tea. I love the ice tea, specially for the summer season

Yummcha, we have been going here for about ten years now, and recently we have seen a noticeable downturn in ambiance and quality. The tearoom has undergone some changes recently, and although the moving of the tea making area has improved the seating somewhat, we feel that the tea making has become commercial, just there for the tourists who find...

We were looking for a place to have lunch but the market was way too crowded and the restaurants only served big dishes. So when we found Yumchaa it was a breath of fresh air. You can choose your own tea (lots of nice variety) and they have some sweet and savory food next to it. I loved the cozy... More

I visited Yumchaa for lunch after a walk along the Regent's Canal from Little Venice to King's Cross. It is a small, relaxed café within Granary Square (inside the granary building). There was a reasonable selection of sandwiches and the cakes looked very appealing. My friend had a smoked salmon bagel & I had a cheese sandwich - both of... More

Daily I go to the Granary Square one for my morning tea before class. And I thought, let's try another one. This shop is nice too, friendly people, nice interior and of course good teas, especially the green and Pai Mu Tan white teas are my favourite.
