What goes into a proper brew?

Top quality teas

Like any plant, tea has a life of its own. Flavour and quality depends on where it’s grown, how it’s handled and even the year of harvest – so every day, we taste up to a thousand teas sent to us by growers from around the world.

What we do

Uniquely balanced flavours

The perfect blend

We make Yorkshire Tea by combining the best teas together in just the right amounts, layering the complimentary flavours of 10-20 different teas to create a uniquely balanced and consistent brew. That’s the art of blending, and we’ve been doing it for 130 years.

Who we are

Checking for the perfect flavour

8 times tasted

That tea in your cup has been checked, checked and checked again by some of the best taste buds in the business. In fact, from the harvest to the moment it heads to the shops, Yorkshire Tea has been tasted no fewer than eight times. That's how we know it's always a proper brew.

What we do

We’re square & proud!

Dare to be square

Isn’t a square bag a bit basic these days? Yep - and we’re proud of it! We’ve tested every new shape going but we’ve never found anything that could knock the trusty square off the top spot. Novelty bags are just a distraction. It’s the tea inside that counts.

What we do

We invest in our growers

Long term relationships

Our business is built on long term relationships, often built over decades. We visit the tea gardens and estates we buy from as much as possible, and we do more than just pay fair prices – we re-invest in their communities and their environment too.

Our Ethics

We respect the environment

Kindness to our planet

From eco-friendly farming techniques and protecting Amazonian rainforest, to the solar panels on our roofs and the sustainable card in our packs, we believe in trading with respect for the environment.

Respecting the plant
