The other day I mentioned stopping at the grocery store. In the tea aisle we found a tea suggested by a few Facebook friends. It's called Yorkshire Tea.
We have three types at our store. The one is not listed on the Yorkshire website.
This morning I got Haley and Lanie to help with a review.
And Away We Brew...

What's brewing this morning?
I thought we try the new Yorkshire.
Yorkshire tea comes in square tagless bags - unwrapped and in a paper box, so we transferred the bags to this tin and marked it with a cut out from the original box.
These are interesting bags. I like them.
Get the pot.
Where is the clear pot?
Oh, it's in the dishwasher being washed.
Okay. We'll use the green one. Won't be able to see it until poured. I hope we get it timed right.
Do you think we should take out the infuser?
You have a point. in it goes.
The box notes that Yorkshire tea is a secret blend of Assam and African teas.
Oooo, secret blend...how mysterious.
It also says a rich and refreshing black tea.
Looking forward to this one. I've got the cups assembled.
How much time is left?
Done! I'll remove the infuser.
It smells wonderful! Rich and warm and comforting.
Has a rich dark color too.
First Taste: Nothing AddedWow! Love this!
Kind of reminds me of an oolong.
Will make a great iced tea in the summer.
Second Taste: SweetenedWhat are you taking in your tea?
Agave syrup, please. (upper right cup)
Radish honey. (left cup)
I'll have turbinado sugar. (bottom cup with tea)
Hmmm, the agave syrup is really sweet. Softens the maltiness a bit. Major change in flavor from the plain.
The radish honey is good. The tea takes on the candy corn flavor of the honey, but is really smooth.
The turbinado sugar adds a hint of molasses to the tea. Very good. Lightens the bold flavor.
Third Taste: Sweet with MilkOh, very nice. Very creamy!
Now it reminds me of the Bit o' Honey candy. (giggles) But much easier on the teeth.
Ahhh, just perfect!
End Result: Three (Four) Thumbs UpThis is a really good tea blend if you like bold flavor.
The tea blend is good plain or with any combination of your favorite additions.
Yeah, merges well with different sweeteners and milk.
Stop again soon! Have a nice day!
