I’m not a very adventurous tea drinker. I need my tea to kick me in the nuts and jolt me out of the morning stupor. Yorkshire Gold is great for that. Its got a little more depth than the non-Gold variety, and the loose-leaf is a vastly superior taste to the bag. With milk unless you are desperate – the tannins are just too much otherwise.
I can imagine a superior tea, I’ve tasted tea with more complexity and better balance of flavours, but I’m rating this high as it is good at what it does.
