drank Original Blend by Red Rose
1705 tasting notes

This is so ubiquitously available in other parts of the world, I have felt a need to try it just so I can say I did. Thanks to Spencer, I have now been initiated.

And pleasantly so. Gave it a good long Monday morning I-don’t-wanna-deal-with-the-world steep. Side by side with a bag of Lipton, I’d say it’s a bit smoother, a scootch less acidic. Tried this cup straight up, but a little milk would be a nice accompaniment.

Though it isn’t easy to find in this part of the Midwest, it gets a vote here for “good pantry tea.” Hope yours is stocked well.

Glad to hear you tried good ol’ RR :)
Funny thing is, both the Lipton and Red Rose brand are now owned by Unilever :P

I know I have seen this locally – maybe Wal-mart.

I love Red Rose! My grandmother used to use this tea and we would have a cup with dessert every afternoon. I had a whole collection of the little figurines that come in the packages growing up!

Harris Teeter carries it but I don’t know if you have those there.

Know of one grocery across town with a fair “import” aisle; this could be on it. Have to look next time I can justify a run to the wrong side of the tracks :)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
