Excellent value and flavour.

5 stars

We only drink tea, no coffe, so having a well flavoured tea is important ti us. We have tried every brand of tea, and this is the best we have tasted. Plenty of flavour, clear and bright,and a decent price as well.

Tesco finest, Assam, Loose Leaf Tea WITHOUT a leaf

1 stars

The tea consists of very very small balls of tea. In other words the description on the pack stating ' leaf' is totally incorrect and misleading.

So so.

2 stars

Bought this having recently returned to using loose tea and the box of Twinning Assam tea we bought from the coop had been used up. Although slightly cheaper this is far inferior, particularly as it is much finer in grade and therefore lots of smaller bits get through the infuser that most modern teapots use which end up in your cup. However, the taste is also not on a par and sadly doesn't even compare with that of a decent teabag, so I will not be buying this again, which is a shame as it's the only loose tea that Tesco sell. Given they stock around 30 Twinnings products you would have thought that they would stock one of their loose tea products. Finest, this is not...

Plastic Packaging

1 stars

Teco have "updated" their packaging. Out with the environmentally friendly cardboard box - replaced with a non-recyclable plastic pouch. Seems all that stuff about "reducing our plastic usage" is a lie. Back to Sainsburys then.

This was probably the worst loose tea I have ever

1 stars

This was probably the worst loose tea I have ever had. The tea is dust rather than leaves, and has no flavour. I would expect better tea in economy tea bags.

An excellent quality loose Assam tea

5 stars

This is an excellent Assam loose tea and the relatively fine "ground" of the leaves is totally consistent with a quality tea of this kind. The flavour is extremely good; I choose to blend two packs of this with one pack of "standard" Tesco loose tea as it seems to suit our rather hard water.

Poor flavour and like dust.

1 stars

I was very disappointed with this product. It was like dust more like the tea found in a tea bag. I would not recommend buying this. I could not even say that it had a good taste. Definitely not up to the usual Tesco finest.

Dust!

2 stars

Leaves? More like dust. Tasted OK but fell through the filter.

Catastrophe

2 stars

This was my favourite tea - until my last shopping trip. It used to have a beautiful box, the best design on any tea. And now it looks horrible - like the branding of a small town firm of undertakers. However I gritted my teeth and bought an ugly new box as none of the proper ones were visible. But worse was to come. I haven’t even opened the box yet, but my friend has told me that the tea itself is downgraded too - and sent photos to demonstrate. Catastrophe. Unless these changes are reversed I shall have to look elsewhere for my daily breakfast cuppas.

Great taste, full bodied flavour.

Review from tesco.com

Some Assam tea is 'dusty', this tea is very good quality.
