Please change it back
I've been drinking this vanilla chai tea religiously everyday for over 10 years and I'm so gutted with the new recipe please please please change it back :( :( :(
change it back
This was such an amazing product then the packaging and recipe changed ,how disappointing is now horrible what a shame . will definitely stop buying
Horrid new recipe - yuck yuck yuck
Noooo why did you change them. No indication on the box. Opened them hmmm round what’s going on her. Add water wow that’s seriously hideous sweet smelling. Taste awful. I’ve been drinking this tea at work for years and you go and change it with no warning and make it quite frankly cheap and nasty. Off to find a new tea this is too awful to drink.
Oh my life please change back to the original!
Well I was looking to contact customer services about this product. I have been buying this for ages as I loved it, I noticed the packaging had changed, when opening the box there wasn't that usual gorgeous aroma coming out of the box, the teabag shape has changed, all this is fine but it's the taste that's changed. This has gone from being by far the best tea I've ever had to being the worst. There's no flavour or strength to it. Please Tesco revert back to the original recipe, this is not good.
New recipe is horrible
These were my favourite tea bags and have been drinking them for years, a few weeks ago I would have given them 5 stars. It was a perfect blend of strong black tea with spices and a hint of vanilla and last week I noticed the packaging had changed and the bags have gone from square to round, and oh my god these new tea backs are disgusting. They are weak, no matter how long you leave them in for, are sickly sweet with a horrible sweetener taste to them, and don't taste of tea at all, just awful. Why, oh why Tesco have you messed with these tea bags when they were perfect, so disappointing. I have also emailed this as feedback, and really hope you take notice of these reviews and change the recipe and shape back!
BRING BACK THE OLD ONES
WHAT HAS HAPPENED!!! these teabags before last week were the best vanilla chai I’d tasted my whole family drinks them now the box has changed that’s fine even the shape is fine but the taste is horrendous tastes like a perfume mixed with a cleaning product will not be purchasing anymore I’ll have to look for a new supplier disappointed Tesco if it’s not broke why change it
New year resolution for Tesco, go back to original
It is becoming clear that I'm by no means the only person to find the change in this tea so untenable (is that the word?) A big mistake anyway. To be fair to Tesco, they were quick to answer our email and I thank them for that. They told us:- "I'm really sorry that you no longer enjoy the taste of our Tesco Finest Vanilla Chai Tea. We have changed our supplier for these tea bags, but we have tried to maintain the same taste profile where possible. I have been advised that the ingredients in the tea bags haven't changed" They are clearly mistaken by that last statement! We then tried to find out who the original supplier/manufacturer was but was told:- "Unfortunately, this is a Tesco branded product which means the manufacturer info is Business Sensitive. This info isn't available to the public." They haven't revealed the reason for changing supplier. If it's financial then clearly they are not going to benefit because it seems likely that most of those who previously bought this tea will not do so once they taste the replacement. If the original company has either gone out of business or ceased to make the original recipe then we've all lost something special. Come on Tesco - get this change reversed - please - for all of us.
Finest goes down-market :(
I have bought and loved this product for years, shipping it out to my home in France. Having just stocked up, what a horrid disappointment to find the recipe has changed and now seems to incorporate a cloying, very artificial vanilla flavour in place of the subtle real thing. Shame on you Tesco for substituting cheapskate for Finest!
You’ve ruined it
This was my favourite chai, actually the only one I liked, and you have ruined it. What genius thought it was a good idea to put lemongrass in vanilla chai. I am so disappointed and now I have to start looking for a replacement.
Hero to zero
Why have you changed this tea?????? 2020 will be a sad sad year unless you switch back.
