I bought this today at The World Market, probably paid way too much for it too! It’s a decent cuppa, more mellow than Yorkshire red, so don’t expect this to be stronger. Nice malty flavours that don’t have a bitter after taste. Yorkshire Gold is a really good black tea, however, it won’t replace my PG Tips .
1) I can’t drink this tea straight. I’m still acclimating to assams for their malty bitterness. I added one Splenda and about a tbsp of unsweetened almond milk. I tried brewing today for 6 minutes at boiling to see how it would affect brewing in cup. Great aroma and great color, as always. This is my morning cuppa.
2) First Taste: Wow. What a taste this rich nutty blend has. I call them tea grounds because they’re so tiny (and so caffeinated) but I love how they bloom as they brew. I get nutty, vanilla, caramel, salty, and a bit of earthiness.
3) Second Taste: Fantastic mouthfeel. I get a bit more bitterness this time around. And I can smell some of that saltiness. I’m still getting that earthiness but maybe a bit less.
4) Final Thought: If you like strong rich teas, you really have to try this tea. It’s sort of famous for its strength (someone once told me it’s twice as strong as regular drip coffee) and that makes it the perfect wake-up juice. And best of all – it tastes incredible. I never go without having this in my cupboard.
Flavors: Bitter, Caramel, Earth, Nutty, Salty, Vanilla
Pure Assam from Taylor’s of Harrogate is my black tea of choice. It has a strong and bitter flavor reminiscent of nuts or caramel that is robust and energizing. I tend to steep mine at about 5 minutes at 212 F, which produces a dark brown/red liquor. Highly recommended for breakfast or lunch!
[Rating the bagged version…] It was okay. I’ve been shoving it around in my tea cupboard. It tastes burnt, or smoky, or whatever you want to call it (and, yes, I tried steeping it for a lot less time, same result), and the bergamot is just not the flavor I’d like it to be. It’s there, mind you, and in force, but it’s more flagrant and floral than a deep delicious bergamot. I might just have a unique idea of the perfect Earl Grey. :)
This has become my favorite day to day tea. It smells almost florals, and brews up very clean and strong. I also like it with or without additives, without a bad cup however I make it. I’ve been letting friends try it and each get nearly as hooked, including my coffee loving brother!
Whoa. This is definitely the strongest tea I have ever tried. Robust and reviving, it is a lovely rich red as your pour and brews to a seriously deep burgundy after just a few seconds. The smell of the dry tea leaves is quite intoxicating; it’s almost as enjoyable as final brew.
I love this tea. I picked it up at Whole Foods because I couldn’t find a normal box of either Barry’s Irish Breakfast or Twinings Irish Breakfast anywhere (apparently Twinnings only does Irish Breakfast for the international market. You can buy it in their shop, but it’s a big box and costs 5 quid, and I didn’t really feel like paying it at this point). Anyway, it’s a lovely lovely Irish breakfast. I pretty much drink this every morning now. I also love Taylors Yorkshire Tea (my previous preferred morning tea), so – go Taylors! Plus they’re from Yorkshire and I kind of have a crush on Yorkshire.
this is a not a very good bagged tea. In contrast to the EB from H&S, this one leaves everything to be desired. it’s got a taste to it that’s neither smooth nor well blended. Not sure if it’s the teabag either but i’m getting a taste here that’s similar to paper but not quite. I’d be interested in trying this in a loose form, but given the choice, Harney is where it’s at!
I had to be at work before 7 AM today, so after arriving at 6:40AM to the office (an ungodly hour to be at work in), I decided that I needed a brew. Problem: cup needed washing but the kitchenette was locked, no time for proper brew-basket brewing, and I was in dire need of something POWERFUL.
Solution: Yorkshire Tea in teabags.
This is my emergency tea stash, for emergencies such as these. I had a bit of milk left over in the fridge, some hot water from the “water bar” (which does not boil water to 100 C, I know for a fact. Boo), and a paper cup of happiness kept me company as I sleepily poked at the keyboard.
