"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

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.
Due to a medical condition we needed to find a decaffeinated breakfast tea. We have sampled many and this is by far our favourite. It is the closest to our previously, everyday, beloved Yorkshire loose leaf caffeinated tea.
I was beginning to think tasty loose decaf was not something that could be bought... until I tried this! It tastes almost like normal tea (doesn't quite have that bite, but is very close) and has a lovely copper colour, honestly it is great and brews very quickly. Already bought another lot as I don't want l run out.
What a joy to find really excellent Decaff LOOSE Tea. Something that we have been wanting for a long time. This product is really good, and tastes so much more like Tea ought to taste. We will certainly be buying this again. Another bonus is that the packaging isn't plastic! Again, something that is important in today's world.
This is great black tea and really does have a great taste.
