No longer Darjeeling, Ruined it.
I agree with other reviews, once again Tesco have ruined a good product. This used to be lovely, but now is awful and NOT Darjeeling, tastes like English Breakfast.
Darjeeling or Darlington
One thing this is, is a great cup of tea. One thing it is definitely not, ever, is Darjeeling. This travesty is more Darlington than Darjeeling. My purchase had a distinct overtones of peppermint and chamomile. Also never bought Darjeeling in other than broken grade not the dusts in these teabags which are little better than powder. Truly shocking and unexpectedly bad.
If this is Darjeeling then I'm a carrot
Horrible stuff. Bags have changed from rectangular to round and the contents have changed too. What used to be a lovely, delicate (some would say weak), orange tea is now a strong, powdery dark red. I will no longer serve this tea to our customers.
The product was fine until recently (changed from square to round bags), whatever tea is in those bags it does not have Darjeeling's distinctive aroma.
This product has changed recently - instead of a pale, golden tea that could be allowed to brew for 5 minutes and still have a delicate flavour, it is now a tea that goes dark red in about 20 seconds and has a very unpleasant flavour. It's not like any Darjeeling that I have tried before. Could someone check that this is, in fact, Darjeeling?

I always buy this tea as it has a lovely mellow taste. I went last week to get some more and the packaging changed. To me that is always a red flag - usually it means that the recipe/ingredients has changed as well. Had the tea at home and I am kind of undecided, I don't think it is exactly the same as it used to be.
Weak and tasteless
This is not what I expect as Darjeeling. Brewed weak (after 4 minutes) and lacked taste. I simply cannot imagine why Tesco sell it like this. A waste of money.
Not as good as it used to be!

Used to be better/stronger but lately I can barely get one cup from one bag! Mostly dust!

Lovely taste but really really weak, need at least 2 tea bags for a cup, and I'm someone who is not a fan of strong tea!
