Grown and hand-crafted on a beautiful family farm, this rare Korean “yellow” tea defies categorisation or expectation.

Our loose leaf hwangcha tea is a deliciously complex infusion that can be enjoyed equally on its own or as a rather lovely accompaniment to both sweet and savoury food.

Cost Per Cup

Hwangcha tea is particularly good with food. Try it infused hot with buttered toast and sweet jam or salmon sashimi with soy sauce and rice. We also recommend making a cold infused iced tea to pair with avocado or eggs for a deliciously refreshing breakfast tea. It is a favourite of chef Cory Lee at his 3 Michelin Star restaurant, Benu in San Francisco.
