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.
