This is another brand I would occasionally drink with my Grandpap, when he wasn’t drinking Lipton or Red Rose. I keep this in stock for the quick cup, hurry up tea. It is not as good as Red Rose (not as smooth). It is a stronger, more astringent, and sometimes bitter cup that needs a little milk to soften the edges. It is also slightly better than Tetley’s Original Blend. This was my 3rd cup for the Dog Show Tuesday night.
I used my cup that had the Oregon Chai in it, hoping a little sweetness left in the cup from that, would help soften the tea a little. I made the mistake of using two teabags at a 4 minute steep. Not much to say, except that it was stronger & more bitter than usual, & I could taste the Chai leftover flavors a little bit. ://
So, Lotis had fallen asleep, and I finished watching the tail end-hahaaha, of the Dog Show. We fell asleep side by side, and I woke up a few hours later to strong, bitter, cold tea. ://
