Not my favorite tea. It’s not actually terrible, but it’s not that good either. I have to add a lot of sugar or Splenda and a splash of milk to really enjoy a cup. The employee who previously held my position bought these in a bulk pack of at least a thousand and no wonder no one else drinks them. I think part of the problem is the bag design and how powdery the leaves have been ground; it simply doesn’t brew well.

I have been drinking Red Rose Tea since I was little and I couldn't imagine my life without it. Whether you put one spoonful of sugar or none in your cup it's still the best cup of tea I've ever had. I love tea and love trying different kinds, but I always find myself right back at Red Rose.

I love this tea it is such a classic! If you leave the bag in for more than 2 minutes it will taste pretty strong if you like that. It is calming yet has caffeine. Served with a little honey is my fav! And the little red rose logo on the tea bag string is adorbs!

Has a strong brew and taste. a classic tea that’s good for both breakfast and other snacks. It has a unique taste that you can’t really find in other brews, it’s subtle enough to mix with other teas but flavorful enough to drink on its own

This tea is decent. I always need a cup of tea a day and sometimes we get this one. It isn’t my favorite but it serves its purchase. Plus who doesn’t love getting one of those little figurines? Haha

This is the only tea I buy for iced tea! I LOVE having it jn the cabinet to make gallons of sweet tea, but I also do drink the occasional cup hot. The flavor is just more balanced and mellow then other brands, while also tasting both fresher and more flavorful! I can make a strong, flavorful gallon with even 3 standard sized bags. I grew up in the south, I know sweet tea. My southern husband says it's the best to!  Let's be honest though, who doesn't love that little ceramic figurine you get! It just makes great tea even better to open that new package and see what you got.

We started buying this brand of tea because of the little figurines that come in the box. So far we have bought three boxes. The boxes contain quite a few tea bags but the box but they are not wrapped in paper or anything. They are just loose in the box. Because of that I always take them out of the box and put them all in a Ziploc bag to keep them fresh. 

The tea is good and tastes like other tea brands I have tried. The price is comparable to Lipton so we will continue to purchase this brand instead. The tea itself steeps quickly and has a strong flavor. It pairs well with sugar or sweetner plus it works to make sweet tea as well.

I like this tea, I think it's a fair price for the amount that you get. This tea i usually make in big batches and cool it for iced tea or sweet tea with some sugar, I really like it for that purpose. I do occasionally drink it cup by cup when I'm out of my other tea and its fine for that too. The packaging is nothing special but my toddler likes the little collectible pieces.

I've been drinking tea with milk and sugar since I was 4 years old, 20 years now. Red Rose has been my tea of choice for the past 6 years. It has a great flavor, steeps well for only a couple minute, nice and strong. The price for a 100 bag box is about $5 I believe which usually lasts me about two months.
I will say that I do prefer Twinings English Breakfast every once in a while as I feel that offers a more almost sweeter taste, more dimensional. But for the price and the amount you get, Red Rose is great.

My roommate was obsessed with this tea because her grandma drank it. I made her a cup almost daily with lemon and honey and almost to often ended up having a cup myself. It's a good simple black tea, nothing fancy holds up well on its own with sugar or with lemon or milk. Definitely great to have around as a plain black tea much better then Lipton.
