Privacy leaks in packets before they reach the Monero Blockchain

It is my understanding that when you broadcast a Monero transaction from your own public facing node you do this through basic cleartext TCP/IP if you don't use Tor or anything similar.

What information is leaked, however small or big, when you broadcast in this fashion? I'm not concerned about the security of the Monero transaction itself on the blockchain, I get that this part is secure.

Assuming that someone is reading every packet leaving your node, what is the most that they could learn from your broadcast?
