People often ask us if Yorkshire Tea is grown on Ilkley Moor. Whilst we do have a few tea bushes growing in our tropical greenhouse here in Harrogate, Yorkshire Tea is actually a carefully balanced blend of over thirty specially selected teas from three of the world’s best tea growing regions – Africa, India and Sri Lanka. Our small team of Tea Buyers travel around the world visiting tea gardens during the peak growing seasons. By visiting when the tea leaves are still on the bush, they can be sure of buying the pick of the crop for our blends. We even have our own ‘Rewarding Quality Award’ to encourage growers to reserve their best teas for us.

Disappointed – should have read more carefully
I love Yorkshire tea, and usually purchase the 40 count tea BAGS – I purchased these because they were eligible for Amazon Prime shipping (yay), but didn’t notice that they are not tea bags, they are “sachets” – the bags have no string (good for sun tea and bulk tea) and more importantly, I believe the bags have MORE TEA in them. One of these “sachets” did not brew up as strong and flavorful a cup of this great tea as I am used to with the bags. Now I have 6 boxes :(. At least the boxes only have 20 bags, er, sachets, but I’m going to have to use two per cup for the same brew. Also, the box is BIGGER, and each “sachet” is INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED (which will keep it fresher, but is very packaging intensive and wasteful and I would much prefer the non-wrapped bags with no string and tab), and each box only has 20 sachets, each of which has less tea than the original bag style. It all adds up to much more bulk and waste and less tea for your money. Do try Yorkshire Tea, but get one of the products with 40 count bags instead of this one.
