I am a long time Red Rose Decaf Tea drinker. So it was hard for me to switch from a tea bag to a pod. The tea is consistent - the first cup tastes like the last cup in every box I buy. I have a near impossible task when trying to find either PLAIN regular or PLAIN decaf tea -- no flavors, no sweeteners -- JUST TEA! Thanks to red rose they have it all. Priced at terrific prices too. I hope to have a lifetime place to get my tea from!
