Our Teas & Coffees
Our range of high quality speciality teas and gourmet coffees is hard to beat. Available to enjoy in our cafés and at home, we offer an enormous amount of choice, all personally selected by our in-house experts.
From rich and malty Assams to rare Greens and the ever-so-delicate Whites, our selection of teas opens the door to a whole world of flavours. And this is equally true of our fabulous coffees – rich and sweet from the cloud forests of Guatemala, vibrant and lively from the hills of Kenya, or dark chocolate flavours from Indonesia’s volcanic slopes. The list is endless, and tasting them is a voyage of discovery.
Taylors of Harrogate
How do we manage to source such incredible teas and coffees? The answer is our sister company, Taylors of Harrogate. Once a separate tea and coffee business, Bettys was offered the chance to buy it in 1962. And as it was Yorkshire-based, family-owned and devoted to quality, there was rather a lot of common ground. When the chance came for them to join together, it was a perfect match.
As well as exotic single origin teas and coffees, we offer a wide range of blends. There’s our rich and refreshing Tea Room Blend tea and our beautifully balanced Café Blend coffee, both of which are served in our cafés, for a start. But there are many more – from classics like English Breakfast to our caffeine-free tisanes.
Of course their best known blend is a phenomenon in its own right. Yorkshire Tea, made by Taylors since 1977 but based on a blend recipe that dates back to the 19th century, is one of the nation’s favourite teas.
