Recently being somewhat financially struggling, I tried Tesco own brand, the red one. At a quid,I was happy and it was a good brew. My favourite tea is Punjana and failing that Yorkshire or even Lidl Knightsbridge Red. With money in the bank and the uncertainty of Brexit and political meltdown, and impressed by Tesco tea, I felt a need for fiscal caution and noticing Captain Scott blend at £1.55 I put a box in the trolley: good choice, great choice, best choice. A brew of history and… Read Full Review

I recently ran out of my favourite tea, Punjana, and as a stop gap bought this brand as it is advertized as "strong". It isn't,to my taste it is weak and (I know this will sound stupid) watery! I even tried 2 bags in my cup and it was still weak. Another weak "strong" tea is PG Tips The Strong One… Read Full Review

Having read about this tea in The Times earlier this week, I am very, very impressed with it. Good dark colour and a great taste. Not to be tried by those that like a lot of milk and simply 'dip' their tea-bag for a second! A shame it isn't linked with success… Read Full Review

Can't agree more with the reviews - this is a real proper cup of strong tea and I'd recommend trying it. Only problem I have had is availability at Tesco. It seems to come and go so I have to stock up. Its also reasonably priced. Check it out… Read Full Review

Captain Scott's is a wonderful strong tea with a smooth refreshing taste. The blend is akin to Assam.
I have just used my last bag & have had to go back to PG tips. These seem very rough in comparison… Read Full Review

The best tea I've tasted in a long time. Every cup's a pleasure, and I will say there's something very satisfying in drinking something that was first blended for one of our iconic moments in history - despite the fact it ended in failure! I would recommend this tea to anyone who likes their tea full bodied, satisfying and British!!!… Read Full Review

Thoroughly recommended both as method of quashing your thirst when you're spitting feathers and as a robust palate cleanser after a takeaway.
This has currently knocked Earl Grey off it's perch in our house… Read Full Review

Captain Scott's is a fully bodied brew, robust in strength yet smooth to the palette. I found great satisfaction in tasting a tea that those intrepid explorers took with them on their ill fated expedition to the South pole.
Absolutely delicious. Highly recommended tea for those of us who like to taste the tea flavour..not for dishwater drinkers!… Read Full Review
