“Disgusting…not Earl Grey…typical Tesco…Brand...”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by Gretchen71 (1 review written)

Finest? It tastes like cuppa soup and twigs…There is no way a fan of Earl Grey has tasted this for TESCO as it isn't Earl Grey….They have blatantly written the positive reviews as well as 80% are 1 star or less. No wonder their sales are down. My Grandmother bought these and can't even take them back…she thinks they are vile…Morrisons home brand ones are great… Read Full Review

“Terrible Tea Product”

Written on: 24/04/2014 by ArianaStokes (1 review written)

This is not Earl Grey tea. It has no hint of bergamot whatsoever and leaves a dry after-taste in your mouth. This is possibly the worst Earl Grey tea I have ever tried and certainly will not be recommending to a friend. I chose it because it was cheaper than other brands at £1.49 but it was clear that due to skipping on price, you're also skipping on quality… Read Full Review

“The new version ...”

Written on: 27/01/2014 by bruckner12345 (1 review written)

Exactly 40 years ago I was introduced to Earl Grey tea and I have drunk several cups on almost every day since. At that time there was a good choice of stockists and many towns had specialist tea (and coffee) blenders that have since disappeared. Now we are reduced to whatever the supermarkets choose to provide - such as Tesco' Finest! At some time during the summer of 2013 they withdrew their Earl Grey and a while later replaced it with a similarly labelled product, though with a differently… Read Full Review

“Yuk worst ever!”

Written on: 21/08/2013 by harobed22 (1 review written)

We only drink Earl Grey tea, usually Twinings, Sainsburys or Asda. On holiday and could only get to a Tesco...I cant believe they can call this Earl Grey. I actually got the box out of the recycling to check I hadnt made a mistake. Its stronger than the strongest 'builders tea' and not even a hint of bergamot, more like a very strong darjeeling.where's their quality control? If this is their finest I wont be trying their standard range!… Read Full Review

I haven't had the Tesco Earl Gray Tea for over a year now until today. I bought 100 Earl Gray Tesco tea bags today in its new looking box. I must say i did the same as you and went to the bin to look at the box to see what i bought, it did say Earl Gray Tea but i must say, it doesn't taste anything like it did when i used to buy it last year. New box, Horrible new taste.

Written on: 10/02/2010

I have had many different brands or Earl Grey tea and Tesco has the finest. Unfortunately it can't be bought here in the States, but the taste is truly a relaxing sensation, along with the "nose" of the tea. This is truly what Earl Grey tea is supposed to taste like… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2010

This is the first time I have ever encountered a truly awful product in the Tesco Finest range. There is something profoundly wrong with the specification of this product. It produces a black tea without almost no hint of bergamot. The other 49 bags went straight in the bin. This product should be withdrawn… Read Full Review

I agree!
We used to buy it and like it because it used real begamot oil when other brands had changed to flavouring. Bought some for the first time in ages and it is definitely NOT Earl Grey.

Written on: 21/01/2009 by Haemogoblin (1 review written)

I think Tesco Finest Earl Grey is truly awful, it's like drinking a cup of strong black tea. The only reason it got 1 point from me was that it still tastes like tea, albeit the wrong type. Overpowering tea flavour, wrong mixture of teas to bring out bergamot, next to no bergamot… Read Full Review

I went looking for a cheap earl grey tea for my at Tesco when we were visiting London last month. I brought back the Tesco earl grey, and she loved it. We brought about 35 tea bags home to the US, and she just used up the last of it yesterday. Can't buy this tea here. Sadness… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/01/2005 by Denis Johnston (1 review written)

It is hard to believe that Tesco Finest Earl Grey is sold as Earl Grey. I feel that it is not actually drinkable. It seems to me that there might be a serious manufactuirng fault. It is hard to believe that a tea could be as bad as this without the suppliers noticing. Avoid… Read Full Review

Actually I thought the Earl Grey tea was superb, so much so I brought a box back to Australia and we now have it sent over regularly by the family- what a treat.

Written on: 03/05/2006

I agree with Denis - not for me at all. It was actually a bit pathetic and powdery in taste and had a strange spiced twang to it. Buy Co-op Earl Grey, it is by far the best.

Written on: 17/12/2003 by Mindy (82 reviews written)

Earl Grey should be as much about the smell as the taste, and Tesco's finest Earl Grey tea brings the scent of bergamot to your nostrils long before you ever take a sip. It's strong and full of flavour, just what a tea should be… Read Full Review
