I live in Harrogate, home of Betty’s and Taylors of Harrogate. They make the Yorkshire Tea. We drink Yorkshire Tea nowadays. I’ve liked a few other teas – Ringtons Gold (which was once subject to a tea off – documented on this very site) and Barry’s from Dublin.
I work in Lancashire – just over the border. I smuggled Yorkshire Tea in past border control. One of my work mates from Lancashire brought in the box of Lancashire Tea. I did try it, and with as unbiased a pallet as possible concluded that it’s no where near as good as Yorkshire Tea – it’s got a slightly tarnished, cloudy taste to it – a bit like you get with generic, cheap institutionalised tea.
I thanked my colleague for his tea and bid him a good day.
