Yuja Tea or Yuja-cha (유자차) is a traditional Korean tea made by mixing hot water with yuja-cheong (yuja marmalade). Yuja tea is popular throughout Korea, especially in the winter. This tea is created by curing yuja into a sweet, thick, pulpy syrup. It is healthy and does not contain caffeine. They are often sold in markets (in large jars) and used in households as a common cold remedy. Yuja tea is made from the fruit Yuja, citron, or Yuzu, a japanese fruit. These fruits do not contain much juices, unlike other citrus fruits. They are able to cook in high temperatures without losing its tart flavor. Yuja fruits have an amazing fragrance. Its strong scent comes from the zest, juices, and essential oils. Yuja tea is both bitter and sweet. In addition, Yuja tea is a preservative, so it can be left out on a shelf or counter. It’s perfect for warming you up in the wintertime, and is full of vitamin C. If you have a cold, it will always make you feel better.
