8 Tasting Notes
This is a good basic tea. When I want something that isn’t too strong, but still tastes good, I drink Red Rose. It’s great for mornings when you want to wake up with a cup of tea but your taste buds aren’t ready for anything too strong/flavorful yet. It’s pretty plain, but unlike Lipton, it doesn’t bring to mind boiled dirt. The little animals are cut too.
I give it more than zero only because it can inject caffeine into my system at 3 o’ clock when there are no other teas available. Other than that, it tastes like nothing. When people say that they “don’t like tea,” it’s usually because all they know is Lipton.
It used to be my go-to tea before I got addicted to more traditional teas. Now I’m not that impressed, but I still drink it once in a while.
I love this tea. The fruit flavor is subtle and light, but still there.
When I first moved to England for a semester abroad, this was the first box of tea I bought because it was on sale. There were 80 tea bags in that box so I became addicted to it. I drink it in the morning because the caffeine wakes me up. It’s pretty strong and takes getting used to. Personally, I can’t brew it for more than a couple minutes, otherwise it gets too strong.
I really enjoy this as a basic morning tea. The taste is fairly plain. It’s stronger that Twinings Everyday but less strong than their 1706 blend, so it’s a good compromise.
