I'm  allergic to  caffeine so I ask for decaf coffee, it arrives weak ( they seem to assume that if you ask for decaf you like weak coffee) so I send it back and ask for strong, never had an issue with doing that! I always get a good strong decaf  when I ask for it.

The clue is in the posting Brittany ferries ,french people normally drink tea without milk ,thus enabling a weaker brue to become palatable .Simple rule of thumb don't drink tea in France and as a rule don't drink coffee in England unless you know the host or coffee shop ,that includes Starbucks and Nerô.

From the horse's mouth

'Our English Breakfast is over 80 years old and tastes even better than ever. This blend is the perfect mix of Assam, Ceylon and Kenya to complement any breakfast whether it’s a healthy bowl of fruit to a wholesome full English. Even though this blend is perfect for the morning it is also fantastic throughout the day, whenever you need a little pick me up this one will help.'

Presumably if someone doesn't enjoy the blend-bring your own.

If you are paying for 'a la carte' and the tea is 'weak' then ask for a stronger brew! I have always found all aspects of BF excellent value for money,polite and keen to please.

As I've never seen BF serve leaf tea (and the OP talks about tea bags) you'd be wise to ask for the number of teabags you, as an individual require, to make a cup of tea to suit your palate. I know plenty of British folk who are quite happy to drink gnat's tea and others who prefer a builder's brew.

Tell me Moi what do you ask for to get a good cup of English style Tea where the boiling water has been poured onto the leaves and left to brew or mash for a suitable period?

'weak' tea is what you get if you don't ask for what you want!
