  • If you plan to use simple syrup: In the serving glass, dissolve the cane sugar with 50 ml of hot water. Mix well.
    If you are sweetening with honey: Add the honey and 50 ml of hot water directly into the serving glass, and mix well.

  • Carefully strain the cooled tea mixture into the glass. Give the iced lemon tea a thorough stir.
  • Garnish with the extra lemon slice and enjoy!


Although we’ve experimented with yuchi loose leaf, the authentic version calls for classic black tea. We encourage you to give both a try and see which flavour profile fits you the best. We promise, both are refreshing, cooling and tangy with just the right amount of sweetness!
