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.

Delicious Tea for Brunch & Lunch Events

The first sip of Korean Hwangcha Yellow (without any food) was hard to describe, to me it seemed a bit pale, like an Oolong that had not been brewed long or strong enough, though with a hint and a promise that a lovely surprise of hidden flavors could be emerging with the next cup. - Well, another try for lunch with a smoked salmon dish and a quiche. And it happened: There was a symphony of flavours with the first bites of food and tea. I’d describe it as an umami-Oolong-style experience, delicately roasty and smoky, a bit fruity and very satisfying and delicious. Definitely a lovely accompaniment for savoury brunches and lunches.-

Light tea with a surprising depth of flavour

This is a lovely refreshing tea, with interesting toasted cherry and creamy vanilla flavours. I will definitely buy again

Korean Hwangcha yellow tea

A lovely tea with a nice flavour. A good cup of tea.

Tasting Notes

Fruity with subtle tart notes of grape, quince, dark cherry and rye berries; balanced with a gentle toasty, roasted flavour.


Use 3g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 80°C (176°F) water.


Infuse for 60 - 90 seconds, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least three times. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

70p per cup based on 3g of tea per 150ml of water and 3 infusions.

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.
