Organic Tanzania Single Estate Blend Black Tea from Red Rose Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Tanzania

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 25th, 2017

This tea seems decent. The aroma is musky and somewhat smoky. It tastes a bit bitter, and similar to other cheap black teas. I wouldn't choose it over other black teas, but I wouldn't mind drinking more of it. I added cream and sugar.

I've been drinking this tea since seemingly forever. Always preferred it to Lipton. Now that I'm a tea snob maybe I'll try the loose leaf version.

Surprisingly not bad! This is the first time I've tried a decaffeinated tea and I wasn't expecting much, but it was actually pretty nice. The level of bitterness was very low, and I swear I taste just a hint of cinnamon in this. It creates an all-around pleasant cup, even without cream.

Also interesting was the stee...

Earl Grey from Red Rose Tea

May. 28th, 2014

A very citrusy Earl Grey, surprisingly good for an inexpensive tea bag, and I think the best I've tried yet from Red Rose.

The tea bag smells of lemon and orange, and has visible bits of citrus peel.

Brewing for 3 minutes with boiling water, produces a rich, malty cup. The bergamot flavoring blends into the othe...

I've now reviewed five of the specialty teas from Red Rose, but it wasn't until today that I finally reviewed their original flagship blend.

The tea bags, as well as the brewed cup (I brewed for 3 minutes) are basically aroma-less, but upon drinking it's actually more pleasant.

Full-bodied and strong tasting but ...

Thank you Red Rose, for the sample of this tea, included in the bag from the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival. I only got to trying it now.

I initially saw "lemon" and thought this would be a typical lemon-flavored black tea, but no...this tea is much more cake than lemon.

The tea bag has an aroma that bears...

A pleasant and drinkable Irish Breakfast, true to the style: very strong. Nothing amazing, but decent quality for a tea bag at the low end of the price range. A sample from the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival.

A very strong tea, and true to the Irish Breakfast style, but I thought it was just a tad harsh. Co...

Dec. 16th, 2013

The tea bag has no smell, contrasting with the tea bag of the caffeinated Red Rose English Breakfast, which has a pleasant malty smell. I steeped for 5 minutes, which is what I prefer for the caffeinated version--even that tea is on the weak side for my tastes.

Upon brewing, the cup doesn't have much of a smell, bu...

Dec. 13th, 2013

I received this tea bag as a sample at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival. It's encouraging to see a company like Red Rose experimenting with single-estate teas, and I also liked that this is both organic and fair trade certified.

Tea bag is not very aromatic, and upon brewing, the cup isn't very aromatic eit...

This tea is pretty good. It's strong and not too bitter. It tastes like other low-grade decaf black teas. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is okay, but it's kind of bland, and I can barely detect the bergamot flavor. I added cream and sugar.

May. 29th, 2013

Not a big fan of Red Rose - and only tried the decaf kind once - years back. The regular black tea by Red Rose makes a passable Southern-Style sweet tea - and it's very inexpensive.

I would proabably use this for decaf sweet-tea when you want a black, generic tasting grocery store tea. It's drinkable but not a fa...

Inexpensive, black caffeinated and readily available. Not a fan - but some offices still stock this for free (though Lipton is very popular as well). CHEAP! Slightly bitter - and very, very black.

A nice hearty tea with a great smell. Easy to brew for a non-Irish person and still have good tasting tea. I like this tea for my afternoon break - if my regular tea isn't available.

I had the opportunity to sample this a couple times. The second time I had a fresher sample and it tasted noticeably better. The tea bag smelled malty, which was a good sign!

Brews a rich, dark color. Flavor is weaker than I expect from this style: not very bitter, and aroma is less malty than I like. Compared t...

I've only had this once and I was surprised it was as good as it was. I usually just drink an herbal if I want a tea in the pm, but I may actually buy some.

This is the bag tea I use most frequently as an alternative to Assam, Kemun, Yunnan, or Darjeeling loose leaf teas. It holds up well to milk and a bit of sugar, doesn't have the slightly fishy taste of some major commercial brands.

There is just something about red rose that makes it the best black iced tea. It seems to not ever go flat tasting even after hanging in the fridge a few days. Everyone raves about my iced tea, and I just laugh. It's such a bargain.
