Red Rose Tea Review

Red Rose Tea

I recently was provided with complimentary boxes of Red Rose Tea for the purpose of this review. I grew up around Red Rose Tea because that was the only brand of tea my Grandma would drink.  She was serious about her tea and would have a cup every day, usually in the afternoon.  I remember she drank the original tea and a little figurine came inside.  I think if my grandma was around today, she would be very surprised about all the different flavors Red Rose Tea now offers.  

Red Rose Tea Simply Indulgent K-Cups

I was excited to try the Simply Indulgent flavors of Spiced Chai and Cinnamon Bun.  They smell very nice when brewed.  Plus, I love the ease of using a k-cup.  These are sweet flavors.  I didn't even have to add sugar.  My favorite flavor was the Spiced Chai.  If you don't see these in your local grocery store you can purchase them online here.  

Simply Indulgent Tea

The Simply Indulgent Tea also comes in tea bags.  I tried the Creme Caramel and Lemon Chiffon.  You can read more about them here.  Both flavors were good.  The Lemon Chiffon is decaffeinated, so I would rather have this one at night, maybe before bed.  The Creme Caramel is great with a little milk and a little sugar.  Some say I am a little heavy handed with my sugar but with these teas I only used one teaspoon.  They have nice flavor on their own.  The directions say to steep for 3-5 minutes.  I went for the 5 minutes because I like a stronger flavor.  

Organic Green Tea

I love all the flavors that I tried from Red Rose Tea.  My favorite is their Organic Single Estate Blend Green Tea.  It is USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified.  My husband brought the tea to work to share with his fellow colleagues.  They all agreed that it brewed faster and stronger then Bigelow.  My husband also said he liked the India Single Estate black tea blend better than the Tanzania black tea blend.  If you would like to purchase these Organic teas you can go here.

Overall, my Red Rose Tea tasting was a pleasant experience.  My husband and I will definitely be buying more in the future.  Red Rose Tea is connected to Facebook and Twitter.  

Are you a tea drinker?  When do you enjoy a cup of tea?  Which one of these teas do you think you would try?
