The UK City of Culture should have plenty of spots for taking a load off and relaxing over a proper cuppa, and Liquid Jade is the latest place to do it.

Situated in a wonderfully serene area slap-bang in the middle of the city centre, this charming tea and coffee shop is part of the newly opened Zebedee’s Yard. Accessible via three grand archways (next to Boots on Whitefriargate, opposite The Mission on Posterngate, and facing Princes Quay down Princes Dock Street), it’s a perfect opportunity to take a look around the grounds of the old Trinity House Academy, which present centuries of history and wide open sky between elegant brick buildings.

Liquid Jade celebrates loose leaf tea, offering a huge variety of flavours and explaining the health benefits of each one, from energy boosters to relaxation aids. The coffee is also top-notch, with a silky texture that goes incredibly well with a homemade scone or other sweet treat (courgette and lemon cake was on offer when we popped in – a delicious surprise).

Run by owner Claire Buffey and assisted by members of her family, Liquid Jade is the epitome of an independent business, giving a warm welcome and excellent customer experience from the moment you walk through its cheerfully painted Georgian door. A visit is highly recommend, and regular trips thereafter will surely follow.

Zebedee’s Yard itself is a car park accessed via Posterngate, so you can even leave the car for an hour or two and do some shopping in Hull’s beautiful Old Town. Whilst Liquid Jade is open Monday-Saturday, Zebedee’s Yard is open seven days a week, with parking charged at £1 per hour for a maximum stay of three hours, and £1 for three hours on Sundays. It’s also worth noting that once the management costs of the car park have been met, further income will go back into education via the Hull Trinity House Charity.
