    Yorkshire Leaf Tea for Hard Water? 5th Aug 18 at 7:09 AM
    I can't find this anywhere!

    The last time I was able to get it was a couple of months ago in Poundstretcher of all places, but now it is nowhere to be found.

    Anybody here come across it in any of the supermarkets? I don't want teabags - I want loose tea.

    I did find it online but the postage makes it too expensive.*

    (*I thought I'd found it online but it appears to actually be out of stock).

    Yes, what a pain. Never mind, Yorkshire Tea has advised me that ordinary leaf tea is suitable for all water - uh, no - it's not, as evidenced by the scum on the top of my tea. I've tried filter water which removes the scum but the taste is vile. I did ask them why, if all tea is formulated for all types of water they still produce hard water teabags, no reply!

    When they first brought out the hard water t bags I thought they were great and there was no staining in the mug as with usual tea. Over the last couple of years though the formulation seems to have changed and the same pinky brown stain is right down the mug interior, so just as bad as any other tea now. I have changed to regular Yorkshire t bags until I can find the best replacement.
