What’s the nicest brand of tea?

I’ve been pondering this since I saw on another thread (about food to send to America I think) that lots of people think Yorkshire Tea is horrid. It’s the one I prefer to get when it’s my turn to buy so I’m wondering what’s better so that I can try to educate my taste buds a bit!

I like Twinings, but I think it is personal taste, do you drink tea?

I used to only be able to drink twinnings everyday. Then I got pregnant and couldn’t get hold of twinnings in decaf easily, so switched to Yorkshire decaf tea, which 2 years later I prefer.

I love Clipper tea! ☕️

Yorkshire tea for hard water for me

Only drink Yorkshire tea and I'm a life long tea drinker, who has tried the lot.

Ringtons which is available online but if you live in NE England then a delivery driver will come round with his wicker basket full od tea coffee ans biscuits for you to choose from

Yorkshire. No contest.

The Sainsbo’s red label is nice.

As is Yorkshire Gold.

I’m goona try Aldi’s own next as I’ve fallen out with PG Tips, they seem weaker than they used to.

Typhoo. Our local Sainsburys doesn’t sell it for some reason so I have to make special trips to ASDA. Twinings breakfast tea will do on holiday.

Twinings everyday, no contest. I can taste the difference and you can have a strong cup with no bitterness. Lovely.brew

I don’t drink tea but boyfriend loves fortnum and masons tea selection

ILoveMyMonkey Tue 17-Oct-17 12:37:14

Clipper but it's pricey so my everyday tea is Yorkshire.

FloControl Tue 17-Oct-17 12:39:06

Waitrose Gold Extra Strong or M&S Extra Strong are my usual brands.

PG Tips in this house!

I drink quite a lot of tea when I’m at home - I haven’t actually bought Twinings for years, might have to give some of their Assam a try again.

WonderingWomen Tue 17-Oct-17 12:41:14

Everyday tea - typhoo

Posh tea - Tea pigs Everyday Brew.

it all depends on water quality. Even best tea and horrible water will not give best tasting tea.

I'm a massive tea fan and usually have about 12 different teas in my cupboard, most of them loose-leaf single variety teas, some from my local independent tea shop. I always have a box of plain tea bags on the go too though. Which brand you like is mostly just a question of personal taste though. There's nothing wrong with Yorkshire Tea - I quite often pick that as my tea bags choice.

Yorkshire for hard water!

FunkinEll Tue 17-Oct-17 12:45:02

Barry's Gold or Twinings for breakfast tea.

SpottedGingham Tue 17-Oct-17 12:45:25

Yorkshire tea here.

TheDuchessOfKidderminster Tue 17-Oct-17 12:45:56

And Clipper, I’ll have to try that (think I’ve bought it before but can’t remember). We got Ringtons for a while but the delivery guy always used to come at around 4 o’clock when I’m usually out so that kind of petered out - shame as I really liked their ginger biscuits!

LuxuryWoman2017 Tue 17-Oct-17 12:46:01

Barry's tea would be my top choice but it's hard to come by here, so Yorkshire next or Clipper.

I'd rather go without my tea than drink other popular brands, although I did have Twinings in a hotel recently which was quite nice.
I love tea, love it.
