drank Orange Pekoe by Red Rose
2881 tasting notes

I think boxes and labels must be different in the U.S…my box from Walmart is blue and dubbed “Original Blend” and that’s what pops up when I search for orange pekoe on the Red Rose website. Minor detail.

Everybody needs at least one extremely cheap, bog standard (yep, there’s that wonderful descriptor again!) bagged black tea, 80 to a box, that you can can swig at will without much attention to time or temperature. I’m on my last few precious bags of Murphy’s Irish Breakfast, so I’m going to need an office replacement. This is in the running, although it is stronger on the sharp tenor notes instead of the malty bass that I prefer.

Steepster “geezer;” tea barbarian who has no systematic method for storage, preparation, classification, or rating; lover of strong unleaded builders’ tea. Never quite grew up—I cut and glue, play with Legos, design kids’ curriculum, and play with fifth graders every Sunday.
