drank Yorkshire Gold by Taylors of Harrogate
1315 tasting notes

I cannot remember the last time I had this one. Tagless bagged version. Over 3g in each bag. I do recall this used to make a very stout cup. I steeped for 3 minutes, and added a bit of sweetener to the cup. The past 6 months have been a joy ride of one fabulous tea after another and just for giggles I wanted to go back and see how this one stood up to the competition. Unfortunately, it has been in the cupboard way too long. The sparkle is gone. It’s not brisk. It’s just astringent. It still smells wonderful but the taste is flat. As it cools it improves but just not enough. I hate wasting tea. The flower bed will love it I guess.

Sorry to hear it … this has always been on my “to try” list, but a litle hard to find around here.

I looked for quite a while myself. Now I can easily find it at an international market in a nearby town. They have an entire aisle of tea. Almost all of which is bagged and very little of anything I see reviewed here but they do have this one.

They almost always have it at Marshall’s and TJ Maxx around here, plus one local grocery store carries it. Do you have Marshall’s there? Or Harris Teeter?

We do have TJ Maxx, but that means I’d have to drag myself to the (ugh) mall :)

Thankfully, ours is only near the mall, not in!
