Review of Yorkshire Tea Breaktime Brew

As a lady who enjoys her cups of tea on a daily basis I am always on the lookout for new teas to try. I personally like a tea with a hint of citrus as it is a great tea to be enjoyed milk free. So when I discovered that Yorkshire Tea had produced a range called Breaktime Brew which had a citrus flavour I just had to give it a try. It took a little while to find some but luckily I managed to grab one of the last boxes to try.


I liked the design of the packaging which is typical of that of the Yorkshire Tea brand. There is a picture of the Yorkshire countryside and to the bottom right is two people enjoying a flask of tea. Onto the ingredients it’s a tad lengthy. I’ve included a picture of these for your reference but it does include natural orange and lemon flavourings. I personally wish that the details of the flavouring was more detailed. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed.

On opening the packet I have to admit to be a tad disappointed I was greeted by the aroma that I associate with everyday black tea. I was hoping for an aroma of a nice quality black tea intermingled with a hint of lemon and orange or a least a citrus element. This didn’t change on my famous close up sniff test. I placed the teabag in my teacup and added my freshly boiled hot water. I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. The hot water soon changed to a light/medium brown colour. The aroma soon became noticeably different. The citrus aroma was distinct element to this tea, without it being too strong or overpowering. It complemented the aroma of the black tea perfectly. That said I was unable to distinguish between the lemon and orange. This remained the same, even on my close up sniff test. I was now looking forward to trying this tea. On sipping the tea it tasted like a nice everyday black tea with delicate cirtusy undertones.  It was a nice refreshing tea. I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by this tea. In fact I may even go as far as to say that I preferred it to my regular lady grey tea.

So would I recommend this Yorkshire Tea? Yes definitely. I liked the subtle citrus aroma and flavour of this tea. It was a nice everyday black tea with a citrus twist. So if you fancy a black tea with a subtle citrus twist , why not give this Yorkshire Tea a try. So thank you Yorkshire Tea for producing a refreshing citrusy black tea.

      No problem, great to hear from fellow tea addicts.

    Tea is always a good idea – but I still can’t wrap my head around drinking tea with milk. It’s unusual to me but I know the British enjoy it.

    • June 13, 2017 / 10:04 pm

      Hi, I’m the same with milk in tea. So long as we enjoy tea it doesn’t matter how we take it.

  3. June 13, 2017 / 11:11 pm

    They are the proper builders tea!! You got me craving tea now!!

    • June 14, 2017 / 8:54 pm

      They sure are. I hope that you managed to grab a cup of tea.

    • June 14, 2017 / 8:55 pm

      It’s a very well known brand in the UK and very nice.

  4. June 14, 2017 / 9:23 am

    Hmm I now really want a cup of tea. I am not really in to any tea apart from a good old traditional cuppa, with milk! Maybe I should get metre adventurous xx #bestandworst

    • June 14, 2017 / 8:57 pm

      Hi, you can’t beat a traditional cuppa, stick to it if you like it.

  5. June 14, 2017 / 11:26 am

    Ohh I dont think we have this brand of tea in my country. I always have lemon grass in my tea, and some cinnamon occasionally so i am pretty sure I would enjoy this tea

    • June 14, 2017 / 8:58 pm

      Oh that sounds like a delicious combination. I’m sure that you would like this tea.

  6. June 14, 2017 / 11:41 am

    I haven’t tasted this one before, will see if it is available of the same or different brand. Looks exciting with citrus flavor

    • June 14, 2017 / 8:58 pm

      It sure is, if not a lady grey tea is very similar.

  7. June 14, 2017 / 1:41 pm

    What a nice article! I cannot live without a cup of tea at the end of the day. I never heard about this brand, I have to wonder if is sold in Italy.

    • June 14, 2017 / 9:00 pm

      Hi, its a very popular brand so it may well be.

  8. June 14, 2017 / 2:35 pm

    I cannot start a day without my cup of tea! Really enjoyed the review, but I have never really enjoyed black tea as much as good ol’ cuppa with milk!

    • June 14, 2017 / 9:03 pm

      I always start the day with a cup of tea as well. Some black teas are better milk free, its just finding the right one.

  9. June 14, 2017 / 3:05 pm

    A little citrus always adds to the flavor. I’ve never heard of a citrus tea, this would be fun to try!

    • June 14, 2017 / 9:04 pm

      Hi, there are quiet a few teas now that have a citrus twist, it’s becoming very popular.

  14. June 14, 2017 / 9:42 pm

    I love tea. I drink it even during Summer when it is more than 30ยฐ outside. I’ll see if I can find this here in Italy because I really like the citrus aroma in teas as well.

    • June 14, 2017 / 9:45 pm

      I hope you can if not a lady grey may be an alternative.

  18. June 14, 2017 / 11:01 pm

    Sounds like my cup of tea. I love the packaging and have seen some funny advertisements for this tea but quite hard to come across in New Zealand.

    • June 15, 2017 / 4:37 pm

      Hi, yes very clever adverts. Shame it’s hard to find for you in NZ.

  19. June 14, 2017 / 11:07 pm

    I used to work with a lady from Yorkshire. She said the Irish tea wouldn’t compare, now I am not too sure about that ๐Ÿ˜‰ but I do admit she made a lovely cuppa tea!

    • June 15, 2017 / 4:40 pm

      Yes Irish tea makes a nice strong brew as well. You just can’t beat a nice cuppa.

  22. June 15, 2017 / 9:51 am

    I love tea. Yorkshire tea is not available here otherwise I would have loved to try this!

    • June 15, 2017 / 4:40 pm

      Hi, it sure is a big tea brand in the UK, not sure if you can get it online to be delivered to give it a try, Chloe.
