Can you brew Yorkshire tea in Scotland or is it only compatible with
As far as I can see, Yorkshire has hard or soft water depending on
source. Is the tea optimised for hard water? Does this mean there
are parts of Yorkshire where Yorkshire tea is incompatible?
Yorkshire tea comes in two varieties - one for hard water and one for
soft water. We have softwater here and use the same (softwater) tea when
we visit Scotland to get an excellent cuppa.
The original YT was for softwater.
I can't help thinking it is largely mar kiting bollocks.
Now where a differential mar kiting strategy would be useful is in the
detergent business, but yet the shelves of my local supermarkets in
Manchester carry the same range of water softening products as those
in London, and there is no water hardness specific dosing instructions
on the dishwasher and laundry products we use.

standing in the river knowing that some of this would be pumped out at
Chingford to supply part of North London.
There's no myth like an old myth - though when I was a lad Londoners
usually put it more explicitly on the lines of "that water's probably
been through [N]* sets of kidneys before yours".
*where N is an integer which varied, but tended to be higher where
"water" was replaced by "beer"
