1 Tasting Note


You know that tea you get because it’s familiar and you don’t have to think about how long to steep it or how hot the water has to be and all that good jazz? Well, Red Rose Original is that tea for me. I can’t mess it up no matter how hard I try and it makes me feel good.

I grew up with my grandma drinking Red Rose, she collected the figurines and would always make a pot when I was growing up, I never drank it but she loved it, when my grandma passed a few years ago, I picked up a box of Red Rose for nostaliga’s sake. Lo and behold, my love affair begin.

Red Rose original is really nothing special, it’s your basic bagged black tea that you get at the grocery store. It’s comparable to a Lipton and that kind of thing.

HOWEVER, it is my favorite tea, I always buy new teas but find myself going back to my reliable Red Rose, I boil my water throw a tea bag and a slice of lemon into the mug, pour hot water over it and let it steep for who knows how long, mostly 5 minutes, and you’re good to go.

In conclusion: It’s a pretty average black tea that for me is the best. It’s familiar, it’s delicious and it’s a big hug in a cup.
