Not sure whaat "English Style" means in this context!

In the 1950's I used to go out for Afternoon Tea with my Grandparents, every weekend - everywhere would serve the tea in a teapot, with a second pot of hot water.
When the tea had had 5 minutes tea was served to one and all, and before anyone had started drinking the second pot of water was added to the teapot. By the time anyone was ready for a second cup the second brew would have had at least 7 minutes but by the time the last person was ready for a second it may have been brewing 15 minutes. The second brew only occasionally seemed weaker than the first, and the very last cup never seemed too strong, so I doubt a 3rd brew would have been successful!
Tea was still served like this in good hotels and tea shops in the 1960's and 1970's - I can only presumably still imagine it is I don't go to many Tea Shops these days usually going for Expresso etc when out and about!
