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.

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...

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...

Each bag contains 2.5g of what looks like ground up CTC pellets. There's very little scent from the dry tea. It smells faintly woody, like a new newspaper.

This tea brews up dark. Before I've finished pouring the water, the tea is already darker than most black teas end up. By the time brewing's done, it's a deep br...

Let’s be honest, you probably know what Earl Grey tastes like.
How does this iteration stack up? Splendidly.

Bagged, 10oz, 5:30 steep time. This particular steep was perfect, with distinct black tea through the sip and a bergamot rushing in to match it.

I used to drink Twining’s Earl Grey by the box. It got ...

At the moment I'm just sipping that tea! It's fresh, you clearly can taste lemon and orange, it smells good, the perfect tea for any time of the day. It has a pleasant colour and a great aftertaste too. If you like the combination of lemon and orange you definitely should try this tea!
