  1. All I know is that there is a slew of write-ups on Yorkshire Tea and the various types, e.g. black, red, gold etc. I spent a whole morning online checking for the best and where to order from.
    I was introduced to Yorkshire black tea when I spotted a lone package of it on the grocery shelf one day and decided to try it. I loved it of course from the minute I tasted it, and offered a cup to various members of my family when they came over. Unfortunately it didn’t take long for my supply was used up and so I immediately went back to the grocery store to buy more. Unfortunately there was no sign of any more of it and so I went on a search to find a source.
    I wound up on a couple of websites and they appear to have scores of tea brands including Yorkshire tea. That’s when I found myself totally confused with all the various types, e.g. Red, Gold, etc. when all I wanted was the Yorkshire ‘Black’ tea bags.
    I finally spent a whole morning reading info about the various types and ultimately took a chance placing an order, so I’m hoping my efforts paid off because I and my hubby are sold on the Yorkshire black tea and want no other kind!
    Can’t wait until the order arrives and hoping I’m not disappointed.

  2. To sum it up real short: Yorkshire red is the “middle class” tea and is your average everyday tea but don’t get me wrong, it’s a great tasting tea. Yorkshire gold on the other hand is your “upper class” tea and is robust, strong and full of flavor and pair nicely with a bit of milk (and sugar if you prefer that).
