We like Brooke Bond Choicest Blend TEA - not tea-bags. But the only place we can find them is Ocado, why is this? It's the best tea we can find, not a bit coarse, lovely… Read Full Review

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

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

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

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

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

A perfect tea for first thing in the morning or with breakfast.
Best brewed in a teapot.
My worry is that it will be taken off the market because with so many teas on the shelves and if people don't know about it, it may not sell enough to warrant shelf space in the few shops that sell it… Read Full Review

Brooke Bond is an excellent blend, and one of my long term favourites. The rich, complex taste is welcome at any time of day, and it brews well with hard or soft water. Most impressive is how long a pot of Choicest Blend retains a satisfactory flavour. A cup poured 45 minutes after the pot was made can taste almost as good as one poured as soon as the tea has brewed.
The one serious flaw with this brand is that the spacious, rectangular teabags formerly used in the bagged version have been… Read Full Review
