Red Rose Tea has been around for more than a century. The brand has helped to create memories that last a lifetime. The tea comes in delicious blends that include black, decaffeinated, and specialty teas. The flavors range from Irish breakfast tea and English breakfast tea to earl grey tea and sunset spice tea, and more. The tea comes in tea bags and single serve cups. Recently there's been some new additions to the Red Rose Tea family. The Simply Indulgent line up includes vanilla biscotti, spiced chai, sweet mint, and cinnamon bun. These fun flavors are right up anyone's alley. Red Rose brings together premium tea leaves from the world's finest mountain estates for consistent quality and great taste.
Since I'm a regular tea drinker, I enjoy sampling new flavors. When I received the opportunity to try all of the Simply Indulgent single serve cups, I was looking forward to it. Not long after that, a box of fantastic tea showed up at my door. All of the flavors sounded fantastic and I wasn't sure what to try first.
Sorry for the random single picture of the vanilla biscotti, I forgot to include it when I took this picture.
I absolutely love the packaging of the tea. Each box has a beautiful picture of the according flavor, not to mention all of the bright vivid colors featured. I wish I could eat that cinnamon bun off of the Cinnamon Bun tea box!
I finally decided to try the vanilla biscotti first. I am a big fan of biscotti and was curious what liquid vanilla biscotti would taste like. The single serve cups are just like the k-cups for the Keurig. I used mine in my Keurig with no issues and within moments a delicious steamy and sweet aroma filled my kitchen. I was in biscotti heaven!
As soon as I took my first sip of the tea, I could taste the infused flavor of the vanilla biscotti. It was sweet, but not overly sweet. The beverage was warm and comforting and went down smoothly. You do taste the black tea flavor, but the vanilla biscotti is surely the star of the show. The tea really did taste like vanilla biscotti! I was impressed. This tea is perfect for the holidays. Have it for breakfast with a muffin or pair it with a pastry in the evening for a night-time treat.
Since it's the holidays, I thought it was appropriate to try the spiced chai. I love anything mulled or spiced and I was excited to try this flavor. The spices in this black tea include cardamom, ginger, clove, star anise and cinnamon. I absolutely loved this tea! It truly tasted like Christmas in a mug. From the first sip I was instantly hooked. I could taste the complex layers of the tea and each spice complimented each other so well. The spice was not too overwhelming, but just perfect. I enjoyed a gingersnap cookie (just to kick up the spice meter) while enjoying this tea and it was a pure 10 on the spice meter!
Unfortunately I am not a fan of mint tea so I didn't try it. I look forward to trying the cinnamon buns tea soon. I am almost done with the box of spiced chai and vanilla biscotti so it will have a date with my taste buds soon enough.
Any tea from Red Rose would make a perfect stocking stuffer for that tea lover in your family for Christmas!
