So... I grew up drinking red rose. It's so much better than lipton*, and I can't figure out why. Is it the tea itself, or do they add flavouring? And if it's the tea, then what KIND of tea is it? ( realize it's a blend, but can something get me close?) It says Orange Pekoe**, yeah, but I can't find something like that loose - is there a different term I'm missing? Please help me find something close!
Also, I think Adagio needs to start stashing ceramic miniatures inside their tea tins.
*I dug around, and apparently Lipton makes Red Rose, now? It's different than their regular black tea, though.
**I did find out that orange pekoe is a rating, not a flavour. I should've known that! I think Red Rose is a Ceylon, though - can anyone verify?
