I grew up in Canada and this is one of the only teas I knew back then. I recently went back and tried it again with a little milk. It was very weak and, while not unpleasant, it was certainly lackluster.

“At Brownie camp. Limited options aside from what is in my thermos! Not bad, a classic. Pretty weak with cream and sugar, but pretty sure the "hot " water in the carafe wasn't really hot...” Read full tasting note
“Drinking more of this, since it's the only tea (besides straight rooibos) that my husband has mastered brewing. Hey, if he's making the tea I won't complain!” Read full tasting note

Kind of my default tea because it’s what was in the cupboards growing up. It’s got a familiar flavour with a little bit of milk, a great pick-me-up afternoon tea. Plain or if steeped too long it goes a little bitter. I always have it on hand for homesickness or when I need to wake up and don’t feel like brewing coffee.
Probably my most drank tea. I have this at least three times a week when things begin cooling off here in Canada and Red Rose’s Orange Pekoe Tea has never bored me, I can always head to Red Rose when I have no clue what tea I’m to have. Beside the fact that it’s extremely good, it’s extremely customizable. I’m sure many avid tea drinkers have noticed honey doesn’t taste good in all tea, and neither does milk and all sorts of other things just won’t work in certain teas. Red Rose can take it all, Red Rose’s Orange Pekoe is basically a clean slate in which you add whatever tickles your fancy until you’ve made it your own personal tea. Great on mornings, great during the winter, great for anyone.
