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.

Green Tea with Jasmine Tea Bags

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: China
Jan. 9th, 2021

This is remarkable for a bagged tea. I tend to expect a mediocre tea in certain kinds of bagged tea. As a general rule, I think the delicacy flavors of jasmine green tea is a challenge to get right if it isn’t loose leaf or tea pearls, but this is an impressive cup. I managed to get two cups out of it. while the seco...

I find it a bit weird, but I often like the taste of a good decaf better than the taste of the same regularly caffeinated drink. They can have a nice savory mouthfeel without bitterness.

This decaf is solid, especially for a teabag. For those expressly wanting a non-caffeinated bag tea, this is a strong choice!

This tea is pretty good for a bagged tea. The flavor is strong. Just don’t oversteep it, or it will become bitter. I brewed it for four minutes and that worked well.

Also, I usually prefer my tea plain, but this one was tastier and more satisfying with a bit of milk added. I could definitely see someone using a te...

Assam Tea Bags

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India
Jun. 2nd, 2020

Taylor's has/had a "Pure Assam". Does the absence of that adjective here make this one "impure" by default? :-)

Seriously, I don't know if "Assam Tea" is the same as "Pure Assam", repackaged and rebranded, or a parallel offering. It has been a few years since I tried and reviewed "Pure Assam", so I can't compare...

Assam Tea Bags

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India
May. 4th, 2020

The dry tea has almost no odor at all. The teabag smells slightly woody, which could either be from the tea or the paper. The tea looks to be CTC pellets that were ground up further. I wonder if the "Pure Assam" that this tea seems to have replaced was orthodox tea and that's the difference.

This tea smells tannic a...
