Is it any good?
I like it, but it’s a STRONG cup of tea. Very malty. In my experience people either love it or hate it.
An add milk kind of tea?
It will definitely stand up to milk and sugar.
When someone says a tea is malty, what does that mean exactly? and what kind of tea is Yorkshire Gold? How does it taste? Astringent, sweet…..?
I was trying to think of a good way to describe malty, and the best I can come up with is comparing it to dark beer. Yorkshire Gold is a black tea blend from the UK, it’s very strong/robust and gets astringent easily.
How about Malted milk balls?
Agree. A good substitute for coffee on occasion. There is however a subtle difference in York.Gold and just the Yorkshire, can’t explain it really. Both good teas.
Interesting, I can find the regular (red) York tea, the gold is however more difficult to find.
I may have to try both for experimentation purposes of course :)
lol…I’m not a beer drinker at all. When I hear the word malty, I think of the thick malt shakes I used to get at my local seasonal ice cream place. LOL….that was like over 20 years ago! Ahhh! heh
It’s a bit of a dirty-tasting tea when oversteeped (3 minutes max!) so watch it carefully. The Ceylon is very pronounced in this tea but the African leaf dampens any pleasant finish. It’s a decent breakfast tea. I strongly recommend milk!
love it as you can see from my picture :-)
always we milk,my first tea for breakfast.
Hmmm okay – sounds like a decent English breakfast tea from what I see.
Guess my arm has been sufficiently twisted to try it :)
