According to the pundits I am not supposed to like this tea because A. It’s decaffeinated and B. It comes in a tea bag. Another Steepster reviewer called this tea “bland and tasteless” but I disagree!

Decaf tea does have a bad rep, and with good reason. Most ARE bland and flavorless. The decaf process has simply leached the flavor out and replaced it with hints of chemicals. So I was very surprised by Yorkshire decaffinated. There is plenty of flavor here and good body to enhance the drinking experience. The flavor is malty with hints of camphor that result in a woody flavor that remind me of how freshly sawn red wood smells. I don’t mean “pencil shavings” but an earthy, almost spicy, taste.

This is my first experience with British blended teas and frankly, I am smitten! After my first cup I found myself craving the flavor the next day. I have not tried the cafinated version yet but if it is ever more flavorful than the decaf, I didn’t buy enough!

Somewhere on the Sea of Cortez is a soggy gypsy. Right now she is probably in the galley making another cuppa. She can’t read the weather but she can read your tea leaves.
