Black Loose Leaf Tea 1kg 1000g TeaCakes Own


"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

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

Teacakes own decaffeinated

100% satisfied with this tea, which I sought on line as I couldn't find decaffeinated loose tea in the supermarket. The tea is mild flavoured and smooth and I was very pleasantly surprised when I first tasted it. If like me you are tired of finding the remains of tea bags in your compost bin, not having decomposed due to their plastic content, then leaves are the way to go. I can also recommend the Teacakes tea strainer.

Excellent - as always!!

I have now bought the the decaf' black tea on several occasions - and I just have to keep coming back to it!
With several decaf' teas the strength of taste leaves so'something to be desired' - but not with this. I prefer a stronger taste to mt cuppa' and this is just right. It is also a good tea for whatever time of the day!!!

Best Decaf

Brilliant service and a proper decaf that tastes like tea, unlike other brands that resemble chemical dust. Would recommend this company and their teas.

Strong tea

Strong, robust and tasty tea, at last!

Decaf Tea

My husband and I have gone back to using loose tea and given tea bags the elbow! Only one flaw in this - although black everyday loose tea is available in most shops we have been unable to track down decaf loose tea (with the exception of Earl Grey/Lady Grey which hubby dislikes.) So after a search on the internet I found TeaCakes of Yorkshire and wonder of wonder loose decaffinated tea! We really like this blend and this is the second time we have ordered from you and it’s delicious. Thank you TeaCakes of Yorkshire.
