Whatever we do here at Taylors of Harrogate, we like to do it properly. Maybe it’s just the Yorkshire way of doing things. We’re a proud family business – three generations, in fact – and we’ve always been into making good tea. Done right, it’s amazing what a simple cup of tea can do really. Things have a habit of feeling instantly better after a proper brew. We’ve come a long way since we popped the kettle on and brewed our first pot of Yorkshire Tea in the 70s. Who’d have thought back then that we’d now be making one of Britain’s favourite brews?
The story of Taylors of Harrogate goes way further back than the 70s. In fact, it all started in Victorian times when in 1886, Charles Edward Taylor and his brother Llewellyn – sons of a York pea-dealer and master grocer – set up the tea and coffee importing business CE Taylor & Co. Both brothers trained at the renowned Ashbys Tea of London, where they also went on to buy their teas and coffees at auction. Llewellyn eventually became a sleeping partner but Charles soon hit on the idea of opening up ‘kiosk’ tea and coffee tasting rooms in the booming, fashionable spa towns of Harrogate and Ilkley. The rest, as they say, is history.
A proper cuppa
Pour freshly boiled water directly onto your teabag in a mug. This way the tea infuses better than adding the teabag to water.
Leave to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste.
Remove the teabag with a spoon giving it just one gentle squeeze.
