Different Than Their Other Teas - Fantastic

I am a tea enthusiast - meaning I enjoy real tea from many sources. Tea bags are not real tea to me. However, due to fond memories of Red Rose Tea Bags growing up in Maine (at the time, Red Rose was only available in Canada), I decided to get some Red Rose for my wife to try. I noticed that loose leaf tea was also available and gave it a try. It is one of the most delicious tea blends I have ever tasted! And the loose leaf variety is different than what they put in bags, according to the ingredients listed on the box. If you are a lover of "real" tea, like myself, than you will glad to at least try this product - it is excellent and only 2.99!
Loose Red Rose Tea a must to try!!!

I do not buy loose tea!!! I imagine the convenience of tea bags has me hooked. However, I am now enjoying Red Rose loose tea leaves. I say it is very good. Two teaspoons in a 16 oz cup fill with boiling water and it is very good standing alone. The leaves stay on the bottom and then dump them out!!!! Of course, if one wants to do a tea ceremony then you can put the leaves in the tea leaves holder!!! It is good standing alone and it also hits the spot!!!:):):

Teh only tea to drink

Red Rose has been the tea used in my home for years. My wife - who drinks only tea - carries Red rose tea bags with her wherever she goes, and gives them to waiters in restaurants for after her dinner hot beverage. At home we brew Red Rose in one of our many teapots - and my wife has converted our children and grandchildren into tea drinkers.

Even better than the teabags!
My Favorite Tea
Posted by John L. Jeffcoat III on Jul 25th 2016
I have tried dozens of different types of tea, and settled on my 10 favorite teas which I keep in tea tins on my kitchen counter. Red Rose original Loose Tea is simply my favorite tea of them all. A lot of "tea connoisseurs" turn their noses up at any tea, such as Red Rose, which is made by the CTC (crush, tear, curl) method, because this manufacturing process turns the tea into tiny hard pellets rather than the longer strips of tea leaves that the older "orthodox" manufacturing techniques produce. I consider myself to be a "tea connoisseur" but I reject the snobbery of the anti-CTC crowd. Indeed, while several of my favorite teas are traditional long-leaf loose teas, I have found that the CTC pelletized tea usually produces a stronger and richer flavor than the longer-leaf teas. They can criticize CTC teas as being "homogenized" or "generic" all they want... but you cannot argue with the result, which is a much better-tasting and full-flavored tea, in most cases. Thank you, Red Rose, for giving us a very affordably-priced and wonderfully rich-tasting CTC style black tea, rather than giving us over-priced long-leaf snobbery. Red Rose is the best-tasting loose black tea on the market today.
