“Goodbye is the saddest word”

Written on: 01/08/2021 by missjif (1 review written)

I have been a staunch supporter of Yorkshire Tea ever since it began. I converted most of the people I know to it. Whilst I don't strong tea, the strength of flavour was something I always looked forward to with my first cup of the day. Something has drastically changed the flavour. There is what I can only describe as a vegetable flavour that overrides the flavour of the tea. I keep trying it, in the hope that I might get used to it. But sadly, I don't think that's going to happen. Take me… Read Full Review

“Strength variations”

Written on: 06/06/2021 by ClareELB (1 review written)

Yorkshire tea is a reasonably good cuppa when it's good but it varies so much from box to box. Why is this?! One box will make a decent cup of tea then the next box (same water, same teapot, same kettle, same brew time) makes a wishy washy cup of nothing. It doesn't seem to vary from bag to bag but literally from box to box. I've had to resort to throwing whole boxes away and am considering going back to PGtips… Read Full Review

Me and my husband have been buying Yorkshire tea for as long as I can remember but over the last few months they have changed dramatically , first the bags kept splitting and now they taste so different, not something you would expect for something that costs so much, like a lot of your reviews we are also trying out other brands as we are very disappointed, Mrs ward Leeds… Read Full Review

“Getting weaker”

Andym-Somerset's Response to Chris4653's Review

Written on: 08/07/2019

I agree. They used to advertise '1 bag will make 2 cups" but they stopped mentioning that on the box too. I suspect they're using a weaker, cheaper, inferior blend. They used to print tokens on the box too that you could collect and exchange for tea cake, tea towels etc but those stopped. Then their bags got weaker and started splitting. Seems to me that Yorkshire tea is now one of the premium priced yet poor teas. Even with a 5 minute brew, good mash in the cup and little milk, it now looks and tastes weak. I don't buy it any more.

“Tea bags got thinner and breaking”

Written on: 28/12/2018 by Tweetypie2 (1 review written)

We have been using these tea bags for years and suddenly the in the last month the bags keep breaking open and swamping the tea with almost a dust like tea instead of tea leaves. What are you doing making your tea so aweful the tea is almost undrinkable. We pay a premium for your strong tea so don’t expect this situation to occur. We are currently trying other makes… 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

Andym-Somerset's Response to Rabborat's Review

Written on: 08/07/2019

Totally agree Rabborat! I buy Tetly now too. Same weight of tea, same number of bags but so much stronger, better tasting and better coloured than Yorkshire Tea.
There's now absolutely nothing I like about YT. Someone needs firing.

“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
