Although I enjoy tea in both loose and bagged forms, I never thought I would buy Red Rose. I tried the regular Red Rose before, and it was pretty bad. Colored hot water seems to be as descriptive as I can get. Well, when I saw the Canadian Breakfast version at the supermarket, the name kinda grabbed my interest and I thought I should try it. When I opened the package, I was actually surprised with the amount of tea in each bag, and I liked that because I like my bagged teas to be strong. After it finished steeping, the colour of the liquor was a dark red, and it seemed only promising. After I added milk and sugar as I always do with bagged teas, I took a sip and was met with nothing but disappointment. The flavour is seriously lacking in strength, and whatever you can still taste is pretty one-dimensional. It was a sad letdown. It ain’t a Canadian Breakfast, but more like a watered-down English Breakfast.

I saw a box of 60 bags on sale for $3.00 so I decided to pick up a box. This brings me up to 73 teas in my cupboard! I keep telling myself I need to finish some of the teas before I get more but It never works out that way. My tea stash just keeps expanding.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted. It was a bold taste but not bitter which is what I like.

The instructions say that one bag is good for two cups of tea so I made 500 ml (2 cups) and after steeping at 100 C for 5 minutes it made 2 medium strength cups of tea (which is perfect for me). However, if you like it strong or add milk you might want to use one bag per cup.

Sad to say, I don’t like ordinary Red Rose because it tastes a bit ‘woody’ and flat in flavour. However, RR Canadian Breakfast has more ‘flowery’ or ‘fruity’ flavour and a nice sweetish finish. I love this blend. Some have said it tastes like PG Tips, but I wouldn’t know. I like stronger teas like the Tetley Strong or Dilmah Strong Tea. RR’s Canadian Breakfast is both stronger and sweeter than the ordinary RR.
