"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

An excellent blend of tea, lovely flavour and colour, I have purchased from Teacakes before and have never been disappointed, a quick delivery and a very reasonable price for such a quality tea that can be enjoyed any time of day.
I've never had decaff tea before. I try to be caffeine free before bed so as I enjoy Teacakes own blend tea I thought I'd give this a go.
It's ok, certainly drinkable. I'm finding I need quite a bit more tea in my pot than I do for my usual blend. But it just doesn't have that deep flavour that I love in my black tea.
So I won't be buying this again. Happily I was also sent a sample of the berry blend which having tried it is a better alternative to caffeinated drinks for me.
My husband brought this loose tea as a test as I have to now drink decaffe tea ,it's the best tea I have tried in loose tea will be ordering again ,thankyou !!!!
Teacakes own blend is a great tasting loose leaf tea. I no longer buy teabags from the supermarket as the selection of loose leaf tea from Teacakes of Yorkshire are fresher and fuller tasting. Highly recommended.
I purchased this tea after being given some as a Christmas present. Lovely flavour and the tea leaves are a good size unlike other brands I’ve tried which can be more like powder. The white tea is delicious too and makes a very refreshing change.
