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.
Wish I’d read the reviews before I bought them! T
Wish I’d read the reviews before I bought them! Tasteless, total waste of money
No aroma at all - Nothing Earl Grey about this tea
No aroma at all - tastes like breakfast tea I called Customer Services to give feedback before realising others on here had made similar comments Yeuchhhh! Twinings here I come
Tasteless - since new packaging/supplier
This used to be very good, but since the supplier and packaging have changed the tea is completely tasteless with no hint of Earl Grey bouquet. I have fled back to Twinings - so worth the extra cost.
