"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

I bought this tea for my husband after receiving a free taster pack. He loves this tea. It is full-bodied and has a subtle, pleasant flavour. Will definitely buy again. Service from Teacakes excellent!
Prompt delivery of order. Good strong tea!
Having drunk tea all around the world, I think I have found my perfect brew with this Teacakes Own. I love the full flavour and smooth, satisfying after-taste that leaves me looking forward to coming home and putting the kettle on, whenever I am away for even a short space of time. If I am ever given a cup of teabag tea, I become homesick! I live in the Southwest, this tea suits our water perfectly, when I travel to London it tastes slightly different, but still very pleasant. Highly recommended.
Strong, rich full of flavour. Minimal spoons to make a pot. The perfect breakfast brew.
I have found my perfect tea! I like my tea brewed strong, but many teas brewed this way are too bitter and tannic. Not this one. It is full flavoured but mellow, not bitter, and very satisfying, with a good 'tea' flavour.
