Well I’m quite fond of Yorkshire Tea (probs one of the best ‘general’ tea bags) even though, and cover the ears of the young children, I live in a hard water area. Now please steepsterites hold your gasps, I feel that contrary to popular belief that tea, including Yorkshire Tea, can be brewed in a hard water area.
But enough of the water debate, down to the tasting. A nice tea with a solid malty backnote and since I’m also a fan of assam this was a pleasant suprise as it is seemingly not there or at least toned down in the regular Yorkshire Tea. I haven’t noticed the caffeine kick that people have mentioned with both varieties but maybe thats just me. Although high strength coffees often make me sleepy (I think its odd too) and this does have a calming effect. Don’t know whether thats the power of the tea or the caffeine messing with me.
I bought this tea because for some odd reason my local Morrisons was selling a box of 80 YG teabags for less than a box of 50 regular YT bags. It wasn’t on any promotion it was just cheaper. So I thought that less for more beats more for less and took the box before they could realise their mistake.
A definite winner for me, one of the best ‘general’ tea bags and a whole heap better than PG tips.
