Red Rose and other supermarket teas


This holiday season I drank tea prepared from Red Rose tea bags. The tea was smooth when served with milk yet the brisk notes associated with Indian black teas was apparent. In a review of supermarket teas by Cook's Illustrated in 2007 (July/August), Red Rose loose tea scored well earning a third place spot among "best teas with milk." What teas did you drink to celebrate the year's end?

  1. Tetley tea with a lemon infusion! Supermarket tea tends to get a bad rap amongst tea hobbyists, but really, most blends are quite decent.

    I simply don't have the time to prepare a batch of silver needle every day..

    That's where my tea bags come in :)
