So, life has been busy, busy, busy! First off, GREAT news regarding my recent health issues. I finally got everything resolved. Cysts have disappeared, kidney is non-existent but not a bad thing, and my low iron has been resolved. Even better? Ever since taking my iron pills, I have had more energy, I feel less depressed, and I have even started going to the gym again, this time with my mommy in tow and soon, my boyfriend will be joining on Saturday!
Very excited about all of that 🙂
I also got word that I will be doing another Tea Love talk! This one will be in February, details to follow.
Now, as some of you might already know, I received a package from Red Rose Tea again, this time asking to review their Keurig cups. Though I must admit, I am not the biggest fan of K-cups, I decided to give it a whirl. Last time, I reviewed the original K-cup. Now, I moved on to…
So, I brewed it and, as you can see here, it has its signature red flavor to the tea, almost like burnt cinnamon. Truly, if I could, I would put some of this tea in resin and wear that as a necklace or ring, it looks so pretty.
Unfortunately though, in terms of taste and scent, it doesn’t quite meet standards. I do not taste any outstanding flavors to it, nor do I smell any. To smell anything, I have to quite literally stick my nose deep into my cup and even then, I get a slight smell of black tea. As for taste, it is a good black tea, mind you, but I would not want to use it to wash down a hearty breakfast of eggs and sausage. It is more mild, better for some light sandwiches.
I know that my aunt likes to dress up her Red Rose Tea with a little bit of orange juice, so I might give that a shot, but this is more of just a pleasant tea, nothing too outstanding about it.
Sorry, Red Rose! I do like your products, but this one, I would recommend an improvement on.
Next week, I will review the final one, the naturally decaffeinated tea.
