Quality has deteriorated, so dusty not drinkable.
This tea is now more like the floor sweepings than the decent tea it used to be. Sad that such compromises are being made that there is a film over the tea in the cup and the dregs in the bottom of the cup are dust that could be spooned out. I vote with my feet!
Like this tea. Strong and malty. Great for breakfa
Like this tea. Strong and malty. Great for breakfast. Use strainer on top of giant teacup. Far better than tea bags. Would give 5 * but for scum that appears on the top of the brew. Dust?
Simply a perfect cuppa every time.
I have brewed possibly a thousand cups of this tea. Brewed in a metal, Japanese style tea pot with a strainer. It makes a lovely cuppa every time. Just a bit more effort than a tea bag but its cheaper, more fun and tastes so much better. Leafs into a container and then on the garden. No plastic or unsightly bags. Its healthy too, whats not to like.
Cheap to buy compared with other brands. Cheap for a reason; too powdery/dusty! Not bad taste
Nice tasting tea, just recently gone back to leaf tea as I'm getting fed up with teabags and the hassle of disposing of them, thought I would try tescos leaf tea as I already use thier tea in bag form and have to say it makes a much better and stonger brew than the bags, it's very fine leaf so make sure your strainer is a fine gauze type and you'll be fine, no leafs in my cup and one tea spoon full makes me a strong cuppa in my tanker mugs.
Disappointing. Very dusty tea, makes a thin watery drink unless you put lots in the pot.
Not leaf tea, tea dust.
This is not leaf tea, it is tea dust exactly as in the teabags, the only advantage is that you are not adding to plastic waste from the tea bag itself.
Very dusty - goes through pot filter
Do not buy this rubbish a very poor quality tea
This is a poor quality tea and the only Tesco loose tea available it my local large Tesco and my nearest Tesco superstore. At my request my local Tesco stocked the Tesco "Gold" lose leaf tea which is excellent but they have now discontinued it, WHY when they sell so many, many other brands. My advice is do not buy this product.
Excellent ordinary tea. Please do not change!
Am so glad that Tesco have returned to their original blend. Good full tea, without too much bitter aftertaste, similar to Lyons Red Label and the other top quality blended teas. Unfortunately Tesco changed their branding a few years back to "Black Tea" which was just bitter (presumably mostly African) tea. This blend is much much better. Please DO NOT CHANGE IT AGAIN, Tesco. There are so few good leaf teas remaining. Thank you.
