Tesco's own is like Tahini soup, buy this only as a last resort and expect the worst. Real Tahini will settle leaving a half inch or so of sesame oil on the surface, this is a hallmark of the resl deal.
I’ve never used tahini before so went by the reviews. The first time I used it I was surprised how runny it was but I’m guessing that’s just how tahini is. I started to stir it and discovered it was lumpy and stuck to the bottom of the jar. It took a good bit of effort to mix it all together. I’m going to try another brand, it might be that there all like this. But i need it for my hummus recipe.
Best Tahini Ever! And I consider myself a gourmet!
I've twice attempted to submit a review of this product, both times unsuccessfully, so now here's my final attempt! Best tahini I've ever tasted. Yes, it's very runny - probably more sesame oil than solids, but clearly a light tahini (i.e. produced from ground, hulled sesame seeds). Excellent flavour, lovely texture, a true gourmet product. Yes, expensive compared to the Tesco alternative but a different kind of product from basic grade tahini. I used to buy Tesco tahini, Cypressa Organic and non-Organic and 'Madeconian' brand, typically, ten jars at a time. I'm very irritated indeed that the producers of Al'fez Natural Tahini refuse to tell us where their product is sourced. The label states 'produce of more than one country'. In the 21st century, this is a great insult to consumers, but I'm afraid that I will keep buying it anyway because it's so good! I would never buy another brand now after tasting this! Well done Tesco for stocking it!
best ever tahini
Creamy and delicious, this is the best I have ever had, and I've been buying the stuff for decades. Partnered with teaspoons of honey and mouthfuls of banana, what we have is heavenly flavor, and the only problem with it is that it runs out too quickly. A new item for the over and over ordering. And of course sesame seeds and their oils have great health benefits. A great discovery.
No problem with flavour, but it was thin and water
No problem with flavour, but it was thin and watery compared to Tesco's own tahini. It also is twice the cost. I would buy again only if it was the only tahini available.
