47
drank British Blend by Tetley
14 tasting notes

This is the supposedly British version of Tetley marketed to the US. I’m not sure if it is the exact same blend as found in the UK, but to me it tastes kind of weak. Hopefully the Tetley across the pond is stronger!

PG Tips or Yorkshire blow this away, however, it is better than Lipton….barely.

I suggest you try Numi teas, Mighty Leaf, Two Twigs and a Leaf, and RIshi for a more decent bagged teas that sells at decent prices and gives all the flavor per buck ! Numi is good at blended teas and flavored teas rich in spices and herbs, Mighty Leaf may sell 15 bags than the usual 20 or more but its a tablespoon per bag! Not bad either but certainly the best for me I love their herbal blends and their black and green teas that are actually loose leaf teas that are bagged. Two Twigs and a bud is much the same with Mighty Leaf though I have not tried it enough to say much about , and lastly Rishi has a vast tea variety that are best known for their matcha drinks and their iced tea drinks that are quite tasty on a hots summers day! So, this is basically my recommendation I have not listed all the companies lol but what ever you find out there to you liking: grab it, take and love it! Welcome to the tea journey adventure waiting for you!

Thanks Anthony! I was planning on trying Mighty Leaf next after Stash’s Double Bergamot Earl Grey.

I don’t find the British Blend weak, but it is easily bitter. This blend is better than Tetley’s regular blend, and IMO just about anything is better than Lipton. :))
