Excellent morning brew
Excellent tea with a good kick in it
I noticed the difference much-improved colour and taste shame it is out of stock
Worth persevering with
Despite some compromises - other reviewers mention the small size of the dry leaves - this tea delivers a punchy brew. I use a simple stainless steel filter basket, weigh 4g of this tea, and let it infuse for 5 minutes ... in a 500ml (near enough a pint) mug. The result, with a splash of milk, blows my socks off. The leaves plump-up during the infusion, so you don't get too much debris; and I really like the bright flavour, which owes a lot to the Kenya tea in the blend. Despite a few compromises, it's a highly recommended 'builder's' tea.
An excellent tea, good taste and good quality I would certainly recommend this, as the Tesco " Red " tea is dreadful rubbish.
A tasty robust tea to start the day.
Good colour, has a well rounded taste - a really good blend where the character of the different teas comes through. I drink it daily and particularly like it in the morning. I normally drink Assam tea and this compares favourably even though at the moment it is less expensive.

Tastes and feels like sand! Please bring back 'Tesco Finest' brand of loose tea!
Tea like dust!
Why is this tea so finely ground? I have a fine strainer but unfortunately, you get a cloud of fine dust floating on the top of the tea in your cup. Please don't use the dregs, it looks like your company has swept the dust-up that is leftover and put it in a box and called it your Finest GOLD Tea. I think I will source my loose tea elsewhere until your company rectifies this problem.
Good tea but FAR too finely ground
I recently reviewed the loose Original tea instead of the Gold. Good tasting tea but it is ground so fine(like pepper) that much of it goes through the tea strainer into the cup but think I will stick with it and perhaps try and find a strainer with tiny holes! I now use 2 strainers and still the cup is full of the tiny grains of tea!
This tea is so delicious, much better than tea bag
This tea is so delicious, much better than tea bags. Its like having Downton Abbey in your own home. Well done Tesco on this brand, please keep it on your shelves.
Too tannin-heavy for my taste and way too fine ground for a teapot tea; our tea strainer is very fine and there were still bits floating on the top. Quite a "builders' tea" flavour. Not recommended.
