Spend your money on another brand
I normally buy the smaller pack and it’s fine but this was tasteless and weak, tasted like drinking milky water disgusting
Don't bother, buy Twinings
"Tesco Finest" I don’t think any effort went into blending this tea at all. The tea is too strong and overwhelms what little bergamot is blended in. Oh, and it’s not foil wrapped, it’s just loose bags in a cardboard box.
WELL DONE TESCO
Tesco do not sell my favourite Earl Grey teabags so during lockdown I have reverted back to these. The bergamot flavour is more subtle, and I prefer it to be bolder. However I have awarded 5 STARS because the packaging is so environmentally friendly. No plastic or foil bag inside the box - just the cardboard box. It breaks down easily for the recycling bin with no sticky glue or tape residue. I will buy these from now on. If Tesco could make the actual teabag from unbleached paper and plastic free, I would award 6 STARS. Thank you Tesco, please continue to remove unessecary plastic with other products.
I am afraid it did not taste like any Earl-grey te
I am afraid it did not taste like any Earl-grey tea I have tasted before, and I have been drinking it for 30 years.I disliked it so much I had to throw it away, never been so disappointed by Tesco products before and it’s where I do all my food shopping. Yours faithfully Enid Child
No Earl Grey flavour
Unfortunately, I have to agree with the very poor ratings recently given to this product. Earl Grey is the only tea I normally drink and I buy a range of different brands, most of which are good. This has definitely been reformulated since I last bought it, however, and now has virtually none of the bergamot flavour essential to Earl Grey. I can only assume that bergamot is, perhaps, an expensive ingredient and that its use has has been minimised in order to save money. Own goal, Tesco!!
I love this! My most favourite tea EVER! Love it with a dash of milk and a drop of sugar free vanilla syrup for a touch of sweetness. Think I’m gonna need a bigger box!
i was really disappointed with these tea bags as there was no flavour from the bergamot oil. Sadly just in case I got a duff box the first time I bought a second box and it was no better.
NEEDS TO DO BETTER
I only drink earl grey tea. I find myself tossing between the 4 main brands. Finest - I used to think it was the best tasting earl grey tea. Unfortunately Tesco can’t keep up the taste and now it is like drinking black tea. It doesn’t even smell like earl grey. I rest my case. DO BETTER TESCO - PLEASE ! Anybody got some good ideas for better tasting earl grey ?
Changed for the worse around the end of 2019
Tesco Finest Earl Grey was the only tea I used to drink. Subtle and aromatic bergamot flavour, smooth tea, superior to anything I’ve had anywhere in the world and certainly deserving of the “Finest” moniker. For over 10 years it has been one of the reasons I shopped at Tesco, but at the end of 2019 these delicately flavoured and foil wrapped square bags changed to the current round bags that are loose in cardboard packaging. I wrote to Tesco customer services and they informed me they were trying to cut down on their waste. Shame they didn’t give me the choice though and I feel as if a low quality product has been forced on me. These tea bags have a strong and unsubtle bergamot flavour, make a dark and bitter cuppa, taste a bit like like cardboard, hang around in your mouth for ages afterwards and are in a word revolting. I binned my carton after the second cup and won’t be buying again. For anyone else there feeling my pain (and I know there are a lot of us) I can only recommend Twinings as a substitute.
