My grandmother used to buy Red Rose. To my tastes it's no better than Lipton's, but it does come with the little ceramic figurines, for which there are absolutely rabid collectors (particularly for the vintage ones). These days if one must have the figurines and cannot tolerate the tea, they're sold separately. Which seems rather like cheating. But Red Rose knows which side its crumpet is buttered on.

I find Red Rose tastes better than Lipton. But the whole point is definitely to get the ceramic figurine. It's one of the only food items where you do actually get a prize in the box! And cheap tea is good if I'm just going to add milk and flavor syrup to it anyway.
