Welcome back, Mary. This is the real world again -- go to bed. You are back on God's time.
Well, as a result of an intensive brainwashing campaign, I finally broke down and tried RR. It may not be what the high rollers were drinking in Vegas, but we are just Southern Boys here, no pretences. And in the box I got a cool surprise: a hand-crafted Pet Shop Figurine
! I’ll bet someone I know has the whole
Wade of England figurine collection.

I panicked when the first store I went to was completely sold out! These posts of Eric’s seem to be having an effect even down here in North Florida.
Red Rose is good! I don’t think I could -- in the immortal words of Witches_Brew -- “trot a mouse across” the cup I brewed but it had a nice taste which I like more than PG Tips or Typhoo. It's very different from Lipton (which I do enjoy on occasions.) Just as Eric says, it is heartier, indeed tasting like a blend of Indonesian, Assam and Kenyan. The sweet note that Eric describes was lost on me, too subtle. But it really is red
There are plenty of more expensive loose leaf teas that are worse than this. I will be drinking Red Rose again, I am sure, though I may not admit it again in this forum!
