Tea Granules!

2 stars

Not particularly flavoursome but the worst bit is it is not leaf but granules!

Not leaf tea

2 stars

This is loose, but it's NOT leaf tea. It's in small granules which I thought might unfurl on brewing but it just looked like coffee grounds - and it left a lot of dust in the bottom of my cup. It didn't taste too bad but not the experience I'd hoped for.

Very tasty tea

5 stars

We prefer the taste of this “dust” to any other Earl Grey looseleaf tea we have tried. We can also use less tea in the pot and it costs less than others we’ve tried - both added bonuses. We also prefer to buy it when we’re doing our weekly food shop from our local Tesco store but unfortunately we have not been able to find it in any of the several local stores we have tried during the last few months so have had to order on line.

Absolutely awful. Its not proper loose leaf tea, j

1 stars

Absolutely awful. Its not proper loose leaf tea, just dust. Also it seems you've just used flavouring rather than bergamot oil. Not sure why you would badge this as 'finest'.

Even the price doesn’t make this palatable

1 stars

If I could leave 0 stars I would! Immediately on opening I could tell this was a poor product. As others have said it is like dust. This is not loose leaf tea, it goes straight through the strainer leaving you with a gritty, dusty drink. The flavour is far too strong and not the subtle Earl Grey of other brands. It certainly isn’t worthy of being a “finest” product. OK, so it’s cheap but even that doesn’t save it. I drank half a cup from the first pot, threw the remainder of the pot down the sink and put the packet in the bin. Do not bother!

Don't bother

1 stars

Awful tea leaves, far too fine so go through strainers and infuser. Wouldn't recommend. Spend the extra and buy whole leaf loose tea.

Avoid if you like Earl Grey.

1 stars

This is some sort of wierd crunched up loose leaf. It tastes nothing like earl grey to me. I stupidly brought two boxes...I'm taking the unopened one back now.

Finest?

2 stars

In an attempt to reduce our plastic use we decided to return to leaf tea. I thought that "Finest" referred to the quality of the product, but in this case it seems to describe the tea leaves! The leaves are so fine as to be almost dust and the resulting brew is far too strong and bitter unless it is poured instantly. It even smells bitter. To add insult to injury the inner packet appears to be plasticized foil, which isn't recyclable anywhere that I know of. On the plus side, the box is attractive. We'll be returning to the leading brand.

Fragrant and tasty

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

It's the scent that gets you first, straight from the packet, then all the rituals, the warming of the pot, the measuring, boiling, pouring, waiting, all add to the moment of taste. Well worth the wait.
