"Full and rich as any tea from Yorkshire should be."
We are so excited and pleased to bring you our own commissioned blend of four of the best leaf on the planet. We have tested hundreds of samples and variations before finally settling on this perfectly balanced tea. In partnership with one of our oldest established blenders and through many months of tea tastings we believe we have created the perfect cup of tea from Yorkshire.
We have selected a top quality leaf from Kenya's Rift Valley, in this tinderbox, the soils are rich in nutrients and minerals deposited from fires over the centuries, bringing a full malty note which gives a great dimension.
Nandi Highlands/Nilgiri & Assam/Yunnan Province
Teas from India typically grow in lush fertile conditions and have fruity refreshing characteristics, our two choices from legendary regions Nilgiri and Assam are no exception sharpening and adding an enhancing element to the malty notes.
Finally, just for good measure a premium leaf from the birthplace of tea, In Yunnan Province tea still grows wild in the rich red fertile soil, even when tamed, the bushes produce sturdy buds, thick, well-sized leaves which add a good fulfilling body to our blend.
To say we like tea in Yorkshire would be somewhat of an understatement it's more of a religion! visitors especially from overseas are somewhat staggered and amused in equal measures with how much tea is drunk by us Yorkshire folk.
We believe this blend has a richness of flavour that is unmatched by any other. Best with the smallest splash of milk gives a bright golden cup colour, a truly satisfying one of a kind traditional Yorkshire blend, just give it a go were sure you will love it as much as we do

Super efficient delivery with the added surprise of a free taster tea 😀 love this tea. It is so smooth I have reordered & recommended to friends - thank you TeaCakes I’m now a real tea convert - Cathy
I bought a caddy of this on Amazon for myself for Christmas as I'd heard about the glue that's in most teabags and wanted to be more eco friendly. It's fantastic! I subsequently bought a cheaper brand but it wasn't nearly as good so have gone back to Teacakes. I'd defy anyone to tell it's decaf. It's delicious!
Bought for my niece for Xmas
Easy ordering informed when order received

This was my first purchase of TeaCakes tea, and it's gone down very well in our house - we have very hard water which often limits the taste from tea, especially decaf, but there's no issue here. The flavour comes through very well, even after a short brewing time, so we shall be purchasing more :)
This caddy sits with the teacakes own, and may days I prefer the decaf. full taste, decent price for a decaf, service always perfect, fast and well packed and the free samples mixed up and a good intro to different things. thankyou.
