Delightful tea

We have ordered this tea several times now. It’s a delightful light tea, at home with milk or lemon. Excellent service too!

A Taste of Darjeeling

We have always liked Darjeeling tea and prefer loose tea with large leaves. I don’t know how we chose Margaret Hope - sad that she died. We first obtained it from Jeniers but they changed things and increased their prices so I searched Google and found Yorkshire Teacakes. Delivery efficient, taste excellent and a reasonable price. Tea with a difference!

Refreshing tea

Delightful loose leaf Darjeeling; we drink it every day. Excellent, speedy service.

Perfect giftset

I purchased this as a Christmas present for my Mom. I previously bought her a packet of the loose leaf Darjeeling which is her favourite tea.
My order was dealt with quickly & efficiently.
The giftset is delightful. Well packed & presented in a substantial giftbox, every item is quality. My Mom was very pleased.
I definitely recommend Teacakes of Yorkshire.

Quality tea

Very pleased with this estate grown tea, much nicer than most of the Darjeeling tea I've bought from other retailers. It's on a par with some I bought from a well known departmental store in Knightsbridge which in fairness was also excellent but more expensive.
Recommended for quality and price.
