Yorkshire Tea 80 Teabags (Hard Water) £0.62 @ Tesco Instore

27
Found 29th Apr 2015
Bought a couple of boxes of these today in Tesco Greenock store. They are for hard water it says but my thinking was a teabag is a teabag and water is water, and having bought a couple of boxes and made a couple of cups of tea, they taste absolutely fine to me lol. Couldnt tell u if I have hard water or not but being Scottish I would think it is, cos we are all hard up here!!

Dunno if store specific or not. It was a normal price tag on the shelf saying 62p, not a sale or clearance one.

bargain for 62p given the normal ones are about £3 for 80

The reduced price above it is for fruit that was reduced.

Hope this will help.
Check this out.
When buying Yorkshire Tea
do not buy the One Cup as the weight is only 200G
where as you get 250G in the regular Yorkshire Tea Bags.
for the same price.

Ahhh the more north you go, the better water tastes!!

If I get this job, I think when I go home, I'll refill loads of bottles of Yorkshire water and not that London rubbish..

Surprised a Scottish store even stocks Hard Water teabags (which I didn't know existed until now)!

According to the two graphs, my locality is either 'soft to moderately soft' or 'slightly hard to moderately hard' - depending on which one you view.

Now I just don't know what to believe !!

I personally think the second one is more accurate, because the first one just blankets entire regions, whilst the bottom one shows more disparity within regions. It SEEMS to me like they've got more data. I might be wrong tho!

Can any hard water guzzlers confirm if there is any discernible difference between these hard water bags and their regular tea bag cousins in the taste department? Or is the difference in the bag itself? Strange product, good price.

Tbh, my tea tasted the same price up north as it does at uni so...

If you use these with soft water, you may die*

I think I enjoyed your scientific response a little too much. Now there's something else that I can say, as a matter of fact, falls within the 'slightly hard to moderately hard category'. (_;)

As someone a) drinks a lot of tea and b) is in an area of hard water the answer is... yes. I think these taste slightly better over here, but I don't think the slight change in taste is worth the absurd extra price that's added on over normal ones X)

These were reduced to 42p in my local Morrisons last week. Must be changing the packaging or something

They are usually £4 for 160 teabags at our tesco, I feel they taste much better than regular twinings everyday, a friend recommended these couple of years ago after I noticed the better taste of tea at her place

I agree, had 4 cups of tea today using them and I really enjoy the flavour of them. Im gonna go back to tesco n buy a few more boxes tomorrow, might as well while they are still that price.

Just back from Tesco. There was only 3 boxes left on the shelf so I grabbed them but then checked up the top of the shelves and there was loads of boxes of them. They were trapped in trays of 5 so I grabbed one of them and got 8 boxes in total lol. Wont need to buy teabags for a while now lol.

On the packs of 5 there were yellow stickers on them which said Discontinued, so that explains why they were so cheap and as someone noted, in Morrisons for 42p. Could be worth checking in any supermarket for em peepsin this case, get em while u can

I have it on good authority that all London water is passed by the management before it gets to customers!

I have a friend from London, who only drinks water from a fountain or mineral water, because the water is just...terrible, and he's lived in London all his life. it's one thing for me to say "London water is rubbish" as a person from Yorkshire, but it's another for someone who's lived in London all their life to say that!

A friend of mine used to work for Bettys & Taylors (Yorkshire Tea, Cakes, etc.)
He was a tea taster tasked to ensure consistency of taste.
It's my understanding that tea is blended according to the area it's going to be sold in.
In some cases you can get "scum" in your tea.
