“The best tea in UK”

Written on: 12/03/2014 by pikeyspoon (1 review written)

This is is without doubt the finest tea in Britain. I am puzzled why this product is not more freely available in super markets etc. it is however available from the Typhoo tea shop on-line. Having enjoyed this fabulous blend, do yourself a favour and use the tea in its loose leaf form - the taste is amazing!… Read Full Review

I've drunk it for 20 odd years and it used to be available in Waitrose though sadly no more. Does anyone know where you can get it reliably?… Read Full Review

“Choicest Tea”

Written on: 09/04/2013 by catoneill (1 review written)

I am reliably informed that Choicest Tea will be available again in the shops within 2/3 weeks from today!! There have been some copyright issues which I understand have now been resolved. When it returns those of you out there who have been drinking and enjoying the Brooke Bond Choicest blend of loose tea and tea bags will definitely recognise the packaging but if you still have some of the old packets you will see there have been some minor modifications - notably it will now be knows simply… Read Full Review

“The epitome of British breakfast tea”

Written on: 21/02/2013

Like the other reviewers here we would go well out of our way to stock up with this magnificent tea. Brooke Bond transferred the manufacturing / marketing rights to another company who managed to fumble the ball somehow and even Waitrose, sadly, gave up on it (which is why I hardly ever go to Waitrose any more unless I want Canadian flour). I prefer the loose leaf version but the bags are also good. You can order both direct from the manufacturers in cases of 12 packs from… Read Full Review

I can brew up without sleight of hand or deceitful cleverness, agree an excellent cuppa either method, at 3.5p per cup I prefer the convenience of the bags.

As an addict for 37 years I can't understand why Adsa, Safeway and now Waitrose have dropped it? we used to travel 39 miles (return) to bulk buy it, possibly to try and get us to drink a more profitable line. It's perfect for our water in what was South West Lancashire.

I used to travel round trip 30 miles to visit Waitrose in Norfolk to buy Choicest Blend, and a full monthly shop while I was there while I was there. Last visit was told 'don't stock it anymore' Well a plague on your house Waitrose, I don't shop at your stores anymore… Read Full Review

This has been my favourite tea for years and today I have discovered that Waitrose have deleted it from all their stores - and presumably Ocado as well. I have protested to Waitrose head office and suggest all other Choicest fans do the same… Read Full Review

“Where to get Brooke Bond Choicest Blend Tea”

Written on: 07/09/2011

I have been drinking Choicest Blend tea for years and until this week could always find it in my Suffolk Waitroses. It is without doubt the tastiest tea you can find. I sometimes add a little camomile tea to my loose tea and make the most refreshing drink my friends say they have ever tasted. No other tea is quite the same. When I found I could no longer get the tea from Waitrose I tried phoning the distributer Gold Crown Foods Ltd but in two days of phoning could only get the engaged signal… Read Full Review

Don't give up. You can order boxes of 80 teabags on-line from Typhoo http://www.typhootea.co.uk/today-products.html. Takes 48 hrs to deliver. I've just ordered a case of 12 boxes.

My brother, who lives in France, has asked me to take him Brooke Bond loose leaf tea over but do you think I can find it?! I have trailed all over Edinburgh and no luck - my mother used to swear by it and that's why my brother still hankers after it! Can anyone tell me where to find it? Helene Scott

Taste is superb. Everybody who visits me remarks upon it...Packaging is also good. Maybe a little too expensive for some people but I would pay more. Only thing I can only find this product in Waitrose which is a Supermarket that I do not use very often. I used to be able to find it easily in other outlets but not any more. As I have mentioned, I find this product first class and have recommended it to all my friends… Read Full Review

Like many others I was unable to obtain it for some considerable time. I made great efforts to find a supply, but failed. I shopped recently ( within the last two weeks ) in Waitrose St Albans to find loose leaf Choicest tea. I am almost ashamed to admit I bought all from the shelf!
It proved unobtainable in Waitrose Harpenden and Waitrose Welwyn Garden City.
I trust that this supply is not a "One 0ff"… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2008 by Elizabeth Davey (1 review written)

I, too, have found it very difficult to get hold of, and I think it is a fallacy that Waitrose stock it in their stores. However, it is possible to order it direct from Typhoo Tea in the Wirral, if you phone their customer services they will send you an order form. You have to buy it by the dozen boxes, but that doesn't last long in our household. They are extremely helpful and prompt with their service… Read Full Review

I found this review helpful because...it solved the problem of not being able to find Choicest blend Tea. I will be following her advice and calling Typhoo in the Wirral.

Written on: 18/12/2007 by kyriako (1 review written)

Brooke Bond Choicest Blend is a perfectly balanced blend of the traditional English breakfast tea "genre" . It is full bodied without being bitter and with a little milk is the perfect start to a day and a perfect afternoon lift. It seems to have disappeared from all the Waitrose stores and the store managers are useless at finding any factual information as to why. The company that bought the Choicest Blend tea from Brooke Bond burned in 2005, and that may explain the problem… Read Full Review

Brooke Bond Choicest Blend is the Tea Britains were brought up on. Well, I thought so!! Can always remember having the loose leaf tea at my nanna's house. It was the perfect brew - not bland, very tasty, and a lovely rich brown colour. I too have struggled to find a supplier of Brooke Bond products, but after a little surfing on the net I have managed to locate a company that can get them direct from the manufacturers. A little sceptical at their claim, but I placed my order and along came… Read Full Review

I too have had problems finding Choicest Blend either in loose or tea bag form. I suspect it has been discontinued as there is no mention of it on the Unilever website.
Shame because it was a good tea. Maybe someone from Unilever will see these comments and allay our fears… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2007 by Foommen (1 review written)

Until now Brooke Bond Choicest Blend tea has been readily available at Waitrose, but my local branch has reorganised its shelves, and it is now nowhere to be seen - but I shall persevere. As a tea it has been part of our family for two, nearly three generations, and I am regularly asked by visitors what it is, as it is invariably commented on. I know of two or three who have bought it as a result, and one South African who generally drinks coffee will always ask for this tea when they come to… Read Full Review

The only place I have been able to buy both Brooke Bond Choicest Blend loose leaf and teabags from is a company on the net. Try www.expats-shoppingarcade.com - I have ordered from them in the past, and it's the same tea I always remembered!

WHERE CAN I BUY IT? There are no longer any supermarkets in Scotland which supply Brooke Bond Choicest tea, and until recently, I asked every friend travelling south to get it from Waitrose. However, I am devastated to learn that one friend has just returned from St Albans and they no longer stock it. I have a small stock-pile which will not last long - please help… Read Full Review

I am trying to find any shop, supermarket or online firm that stock Brooke Bond Choicest Blend tea for a friend of mine. I would appreciate any help from your members.

<br/>If you find any shops, supermarkets or online firms please let me know if you can. The only place online I have found so far that sells both teabags and the loose tea is
