“Not a good taste.”

Written on: 21/09/2017

I am so sorry to write this , but Yorkshire Tea! what have you done to your tea?. I have been drinking your tea for years but now it seems like it has a bitter taste , so maybe what you could do is go back in time and please bring back the tea we all love. Thank you… Read Full Review

“Not as strong as it used to be,,,”

Written on: 08/03/2017 by Rabborat (1 review written)

I would agree with the other reviewer: Yorkshire tea is not as strong as it used to b. Everyone in the family have noticed it, my 11 year old daughter commented that it just wasn't very nice (she's a keen tea drinker). There seems to be much less tea in a bag which would normally make a hearty brew for two cups - now a weak one cuppa...we have now gone to Tetley tea. Yorkshire tea is usually been a good fortifier now it gets poured away… Read Full Review

“Changed taste”

Written on: 03/03/2017 by 1anam (1 review written)

Glad I'm not imagining things. Yorkshire used to be way above the other teas but sadly the taste has become weak and bitter. It seems like they have added colouring to give the impression that the tea is strong. Shame as I used to recommend this to friends. Why can't these companies take a cut to their big bosses profits and keep the brand going with happy customers???… Read Full Review

“Yorkshire Gold has changwd”

Written on: 10/12/2016 by Mooredt188 (1 review written)

Yorkshire tea is still I think the same but had not treated myself to Yorkshire Gold for a while simply because my local independent grocer's did not stock it. I ordered some the other day and it's weaker even than the standard Yorkshire with a slight aromatic taste. Would recommend the Yorkshire Tea but not Yorkshire Gold… Read Full Review

“Switching brands after they seem to have weakened it”

Written on: 15/10/2016 by czLeach403 (1 review written)

Ive drunk this brand for years and now agree that they have definitely changed the brew somehow? less in bag? Another stealthy move by a company perhaps to save more money after Brexit? So here's the result of you guys ballsing up your own brand. .....I now switch to another because yours is now no different to anyone else's on the market..... weak and pathetic..... have to use 2 bags to get same result as before. Here's a tip "IF IT ISN'T BROKEN DON'T FIX IT". your motto ' proper brew' had us… Read Full Review

“Yorkshire Tea is not as good as it was”

Written on: 23/05/2016 by 387Peters (1 review written)

II used to think Yorkshire tea was the best on the shelves. Full of flavour and strong enough for two cups. Whether the quantity is not as much in the tea bag or it is the quality but definitely not as good and still dearer than its rivals. Also the paper seems more fragile. I am going to try others maybe own brands which I have liked in the past. I'm afraid you can't cut corners on our favorite brew… Read Full Review

“Used to be one of the best. Now its weak and substandard..”

Written on: 22/03/2016 by winstonwolf88 (2 reviews written)

As i specified in the headline Yorkshire tea is basically weak tea now and not very satisfying at all. Its clearly changed somehow and really needs to be sorted. Look for something else… Read Full Review

I totally agree. Where has the strength of the tea gone? There is also a different taste. M G Bickerton

The2Sheds's Comment

Written on: 11/02/2016

I've noticed a change in the strength, colour and taste of Yorkshire Tea from Taylor's of Harrogate, too. I've been using their tea-bags for years and over the past 6 months I have noticed a difference. There is definitely something different in both the original and hard-water varieties. Glad to find that I am not the only one to notice this. I'm going to write to them directly.

“Proof we're being ripped off.”

Written on: 08/10/2015 by Hitches (1 review written)

I have been buying Yorkshire Tea for years, I buy the 240 box and as I have 2 Yorkshire Tea tins which will each hold 80 bags, I fill them both up and put the other 80 bags in a plastic bag until one off the tins becomes empty. It is almost a ritual as I have done it for so long. Sunday gone i opened up the box of 240 bags put 80 in one tin and 80 in the other. Much to my surprise the tins still had plenty of room in them and I managed to get another 40 in each. I think it unlikely the tins… Read Full Review

“Gone Downhill!”

Written on: 16/09/2015

I thought it was just me! but have just seen everyone elses reviews. We have been buying Yorkshire for a few years now after not having a particular favourite brand. We always buy it at Home Bargains where it is well priced. What made me notice was having a cuppa out at cafes a few times lately and noticing enjoying the actual flavour and my tea at home seems to be getting really tasteless. I live in a hard water area but have never bothered to try their special 'hard' tea as its not sold in… Read Full Review

“Not The Same Anymore! Much Too Weak!”

Written on: 22/06/2015 by svIngram1957 (1 review written)

Why have they made these bags weaker? They used to be the only brand for those who liked their tea stronger. You could leave the bag in a mug and within 2 minutes have a lovely flavoursome brew. Now I leave the bag in for 6 mins and still get a brew much weaker than your average bag and with a poorer taste. I have been a yorkshire tea drinker for years but will be switching to another brand from now on. Very dissapointed!… Read Full Review

“Plus one for the pot!”

Written on: 25/03/2015

From being a Yorkshireman proud of this tea, I must admit that of late it has become what is called around here " maidens brew ". I suspect the weakness is probably present due to a desire to produce a cheaper product for the heavy dis counters. This however is a false economy for the consumer as we have found that two bags are now required where before one would suffice. It's make your mind up time for Taylor's; I'll give it a miss after this box full and try again in a few months… Read Full Review
