Glorified Lawn Cuttings

Potentially the worst tasting tea I have ever tried. You'd honestly be better off drinking the contents of your lawn mower, or soaked squares of cardboard. Your one upside is that's it's not bitter, and it's never gonna be because it's not anything. No matter how long you brew this tea, it still tastes of absolutely nothing. Somehow, it gets worse when you add milk. This is the one and only piece of evidence required to completely ban growing tea in Australia, because it will never work. Please don't waste your time crying over this box of tea like I did Yours Truly x

Nerada loose leaf tea is not leaf, its granules. Why?

I cant rate this tea for taste as I dont know if it's safe to drink. Its called loose lef tea but there's no leaf in sight, it's granules.
I cant find information about this online & there's no explanation on the box.
Why isn't Nerada being transparent about this ? Show details

I accidentally bought the Neruda black tea instead of the green tea, and what a pleasant surprise!
It would have to be the best black tea I have ever tasted....Very glad I found it!

The best Tea by far

Nerada Tea is a good strong decent cup of tea. I am so over wasting my time with all the others having to use 2 tea bags or having to make a whole pot of tea when i only want a cup. Nerada has a great taste its smooth and honestly perfect. I also highly recommend visiting the Tea house when up in Cairns its so beautiful, omg the Devonshire teas are to die for and the view of sitting there over looking all the tea bushes is breathtaking. Nerada is a big 5 stars for me...and the best thing is its Australian Show details

Quality of bag

I have been buying Nerada Tea Cup or Pot bags for decades now and l wouldn't buy anything else ( as long as their available). But l have noticed a difference in the quality of the bag itself, in the latest boxes that I have bought. They tear very easily when you try to sqeeze out the bag on the side of the cup using a spoon, which is the way that I have always done it, (never used to happen before) Show details

Beats all other black teas

The flavour is strong but not overpowering. The best tea I have ever tasted . And as an elderly person I have tried many. It even beats the very best tea I given to take home from Inner Mongolia last year . I more and more people seem to be turning to Nerada tea now  Show details

Extremely disappointing: not a true black tea!

I was looking for an organic black tea as an alternative to the wonderful Virgin Garden which isn't available at the moment. The Nerada looked promising in its description and I liked that it is an Australian product and grown pesticide free. Unfortunately that is its only good point. The aroma was strange immediately on opening it - more like a green tea. Even when left to brew for a long time, it has a light colour and the flavour is somewhere between a green and black tea (more like a strong green tea). So disappointing! I have NEVER experienced a "black" tea which isn't dark in colour nor robust in flavour! Attached is a photo of the tea after the higher end of recommended 5 minutes brewing (2-5 suggested). What a waste of money! Show details

Lovely flavours

I loved the lemon and ginger tea and green tea so much I gave some to a few friends and now they too buy it for themselves!!! I too love the taste especially of the ginger and lemon it is so refreshing and leaves a pleasant after taste :)

Earl Grey tasteless and no aroma

No aroma and tasteless. I usually buy Twinings but was swayed at the box, larger quantity and what I believed was a good brand. One cup and others in the bin. Waste of money. Show details

Nerada teacup bags in packs of 100: look before you swallow

I Have used Nerada Tea bags almost exclusively since 1989 and would normally recommend them. However, I recently purchased several packets of 100 teacup teabags in the local supermarket, but upon using, noticed a tiny tube of plastic or plasticized paper floating in the hot tea. Upon further inspection, i also noticed a quite loose, tiny flat piece of plasticized material attached to the back of each or most of the tea bags in the packet. I contacted the Nerada company & told them of my discovery and they replied that they had been aware of the problem and had taken remedial action. Meanwhile, I shall be looking more closely at what I am swallowing.

Questions & Answers

Jackie · Cup / Pot

Hi, first of All I love you Cup/Pot Tea. BUT yes a BUT, lately I’ve been noticing that when I go to separate the double bags they don’t tare properly. The perforation is off centre. So it tears closer to the second bag, as a result you have one good one and one torn so the tea falls out OR I make a cuppa and then realise tea is floating OR I get to the bottom of my cuppa and get a mouthful of tea leaves.
So now I use Scissors to separate the twin bags. It hasn’t stopped me purchasing Nerada Tea Cup/Pot bags. I just thought you (The Company) needed to be aware of this happening
