drank British Blend by Tetley
141 tasting notes

My mother bought this because after 30+ years of drinking Lipton, she decided that they had changed the tea and that it was now bland and flavorless. She tried the regular Tetley first, and found that it was even more bland that Lipton. She siad the British blend tasted somewhat better, so I decided to give it a try.

I steeped the tea the maximum time of 5 minutes the box suggested, since I anticipated it would not have a great deal of taste. It was better than Lipton or the American Tetley, like a watered down English Breakfast tea. Not completely flavorless nor bitter, but not satisfying either. Just inoffensive. I would probably never drink this again unless a friend served it to me and I didn’t want to offend them by refusing.

Profile

Bio

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
