Earl Grey from Red Rose Tea

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Original (Black Tea) from Red Rose Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

43 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
May. 7th, 2014

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 ...

Decaffeinated Lemon Chiffon from Red Rose Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

37 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5

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...

Irish Breakfast from Red Rose Tea

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 2nd, 2014

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...

English Breakfast Decaf from Red Rose Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Organic Tanzania Single Estate Blend Black Tea from Red Rose Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Tanzania

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
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...

English Breakfast from Red Rose Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 17th, 2011

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...
