Review of British Blend - Premium Black Tea

I've been drinking tetley British blend for several years and as of today I'm changing to a different tea. It tastes like water and is very weak tasting. It's obvious that the company has cut back on it's product because at one time it was enjoyable.

Welcome to RateTea, and thank you for your first review!

I don't know Tetley well, and haven't tried this tea, so I can't comment on their consistency, but I definitely know the frustration when the quality of some company's product declines.

If you want any recommendations, there are a ton on the site. I would hugely recommend exploring the world of loose-leaf tea, if possible, as I think the best teas are only available in loose-leaf form. But even among the mainstream brands of tea bags that are more widely available, there are quite a few that I like better than Tetley.

If you want a British-style tea, going for a straight Ceylon is often a good choice, or an Assam if you want something more robust. Let me know if you have any questions or need any help!

In the second paragraph Alex, you state that you "haven't tried this tea". You then write, in the penultimate paragraph, "there are quite a few that I like better than Tetley"

Clearly there is a contradiction. How can you prefer the taste of a tea in comparison to a tea which you initially stated you hadn't tasted?

Tetley makes several different teas. I've tried Tetley's Classic blend, not the British blend (this one), and I may have tried a few others as well, but I have not reviewed any of them.
