Try Waitrose - they have all the English brands in there, except for my beloved Yorkshire Tea.

No waitrose or lifco in Abu Dhabi but Lulu in Khalydia Mall sell Yorkshire tea. Also check spinneys for waitrose tea as they do stock some waitrose products.

Many thanks for the replies, i'll pass by Lulu later, getting fed up with PG tips also and dont even mention Lipton...

So is Yorkshire tea the tea of choice? I'm after strong builders type tea, with none of that earl gay smokiness.

I wasn't aware that tea was produced in England. Surely the best quality teas come from Sri Lanka and Kenya, don't they?

Yorkshire tea is lovely - it's definitely a strong builders cuppa. I can't stand PG tips, Lipton and the like.

I'm drinking a nice mug of M&S tea right now...

They do a range of Fairtrade Tea in round tea bags that is marketed as Mild/Medium/Extra strong - far superior to that Lipton yellow label rubbish!
