Yuja-cha (유자차; 柚子茶) or yuja tea is a traditional Korean tea made by mixing hot water with yuja-cheong (yuja marmalade).[1]


Occasionally, the term yuja-cha can also be used to refer to the jarred yuja marmalade used to make the tea.[2][3] The drink's name is sometimes translated into "citron tea" or "honey citron tea" in English,[4][5] but yuja and citron are different citrus fruits.
