About Taylors of Harrogate

Taylors of Harrogate is a tea company based in the UK. Taylors of Harrogate mostly carries black teas popular in the UK, although it also carries some green, white, oolong, and herbal teas. The company sells both loose tea and tea in teabags. The company also owns the brand Yorkshire Tea. Both brands are owned by the Betty & Taylors Group.

Although not as widely distributed in the US as in the UK, Taylors of Harrogate's teas can sometimes be found in specialty import stores. Online, the teas can be purchased through Bettys, which is primarily focused on the UK but does also ship internationally.

In 2007, Taylors of Harrogate planted a tea garden in Harrogate, using the China Jat variety of tea plant, a variety usually grown at high altitudes due to its ability to withstand cold.[1] This was an ambitious project, as the location is significantly farther north, dryer, and inland, away from the moderating effect of the coast.

Picture of Decaffeinated Breakfast Tea Bags

Dry, this tea smells like a Lipton teabag, which is potentially promising. I've yet to find a decaffeinated black tea that actually tastes like tea.

After adding water, a hint of earthiness comes through. The dominant aroma is the same wet paper smell that I now realize is a hallmark of decaffeinated black tea. The ...

Lemon & Orange Tea Bags

Style: Fruit Black Tea – Region: Blend
Feb. 28th, 2020

The tea in the bags is in small enough pieces that it's difficult to tell if it started out orthodox or CTC, but I think it's orthodox. It smells pleasently lemon-orange, but no tea shines through yet. After adding the water, the tea smells like fresh orange pulp. The tea itself is muted with the barest hint of malt ri...

The dry tea is chopped up quite fine. It looks like a typical Darjeeling, having a range of colors from light green to a dark brown, indicating a range of oxidations. Taylor's puts 2.5 grams of tea in their bags, splitting the difference between the typical American 2 grams and the 3 grams of many English bagged teas.

Organic Chamomile Tea Bags

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: ?????
Aug. 2nd, 2019

This is good quality chamomile. After opening the heavy paper and foil pouch, the dry teabag has a much richer aroma than most chamomile that I've had. The contents of the teabag looks ground up and entirely flower parts with no stems or leaves.

It brews up a deep gold with a slight greenish hue. The aroma of the li...

Picture of Assam Leaf Tea - Halmari Estate

Thanks to Greg and Inge for this Christmas gift. A malty and complex Assam that feels very nice on the palate. This went very well with soy milk, which is not what always happens when I add soy milk. A treat for sure.
