I’ve previously complained about the rubbish quality of Cafe Nero tea, but this is an extra post just to underline that I’m not the only one. I was drinking tea in Nero’s and Y asked how I could stand it, as it didn’t taste of anything. She said she’d complained last time she was in there. I thought ‘Complain! That’s a bit strong’ and then I thought, hang on, why not? It tastes of nothing! Everyone else I was at the table with tasted it and agreed it didn’t taste like tea at all, though it looked like tea.
Y marched off with my mug and complained to the barista. They apologised but said it was the house blend and most people liked it, however they offered me a free drink instead. I picked hot chocolate.
It occurs to me that we need to be braver about complaining about rubbish tea! Stand up for proper tea!
