Tasty! I've opened my Second Tin! October 23, 2014

I didn't think I'd like an herbal tea, but this is great! I'm also happy that the rest of the "Downton Abbey" range is turning out to be just as tasty (in my most recent order, I also ordered DA Christmas Tea, and DA Bates' Brambleberry Tea); so I suppose it's time to put in another order!

Found this on a trip to Winterthur and it is absolutely my new favorite. It replaced Almond Coconut Macaroon, which is really good too, but there is something special about the flavor of the English rose tea. After I give what I just purchased as gifts, I will want to purchase more, so I hope you will not discontinue it.

Relaxing and A New Favorite September 25, 2014

Tina Beam

Lititz , PA

This tea has become one of my absolute favorites. I hope you don't discontinue this one! It is amazing. The lightness and relaxing qualities of this tea is a delight to the tongue and senses. Just the smell of this tea brings relaxation. I have shared with so many friends and it brightens their day as well. It tastes great hot and iced. It is a gift for those who's day needs a bit of a special touch of extra love and this tea does it. My absolute favorite. Keep this tea for a long time. I do wish though the Estate Tea was easier to access then through that other company. I adore your teas this is my favorite company!

A wonderful Surprise June 17, 2014

MushroomMom

Bought this tea on a lark while visiting my mother. I am not fond of rose hips but my curiosity got the better of me. After tasting this, I am kicking myself for not buying more. From the smell of the tin, the aroma while the tea was steeping to the last sip from my cup, this was a total sensory experience.

Stevia is not artificial nor manufactured January 21, 2014

Nancy Oglesby

Overland Park, KS

This tea is perfect! Someone said it's like Red Zinger and it also reminded me of that but without the ultra-tart bite. It's a lovely, soft delightful blend. Now, I have to comment on the reviewers who said 'artificial sweetener' and 'manufactured sweetener.' Stevia is neither if they are using the leaf. I grow the herb Stevia and then dry it and add it to my homemade teas to give a hint of sweetness. This tea is perfect! Thanks RofT!

I ordered this in December when I was ordering gifts for friends. Oh my, this tea does not disappoint! From the moment the hot water hits the tea bag, its perfume lingers in air and tastes just as wonderful. I personally enjoy pairing this with a light drizzle of orange blossom honey. This is going to become one of my most beloved teas I can already tell.

Sharon

Grafton, NH

I received this Downton Abbey® English Rose Tea sample yesterday and trying it as hot tea this morning. I was surprised how good it tasted, putting a smile on my face, not overpowering at all. I will have to try it iced. This is another Republic of Tea product that I will add to my favorites! As for Stevia, it's a natural sweetener from plants, so please get your information first before telling others it's artificial.

It's OK January 10, 2014

Ceci

Los Banos, CA

I received a free sample in the mail and it was OK. The name is a bit misleading because I expected it to taste like rose. In fact, the first ingredient is hibiscus. The second ingredient is rosehips but those tend to taste a little apple-y (to me anyway). There is more stevia/raspberry in this than actual rose petals. I wouldn't buy a tea that had stevia already in it. Not knowingly at least. Perhaps the strong taste of raspberry/hibiscus, which is acidic warranted something sweeter to calm it down. It's a perfectly fine tea, but not something I would purchase on my own. For a tea that tastes more like rose, RoT's Rose Petal Black tea is a great choice.

Normally I don't appreciate floral teas January 08, 2014

But I was impressed w/this tea! The rose is very faint, almost more of a scent than a flavor. Nice combo of raspberry and hibiscus. I tried this hot but can't wait to try it as an iced!

Just what I had been looking for! January 07, 2014

Emily Hartman

Bigfork, MT

So surprised! I've been looking for a tangy raspberry tea for awhile now, but the stuff in the grocery stores just wasn't "quite right". At first my impression was that this wa going to be an extremely floral tea. But I was wrong! It's like summer raspberries in a tea! I think the hibiscus give it just the right mount of tartness. I usually like my teas with honey (and milk with black teas) but this one was perfect left alone without any help. Thanks for sending the sample! I am more than pleased and will likely order more of this. My winter cure has arrived! Like summertime in a cup.

tasty, soothing nighttime treat January 05, 2014

Nicole

Port Angeles, WA

I got this in the monthly paper as the sample and I was pleasantly surprised! I expected it to be an odd flavor, but it was not. It was very fragrant when I poured hot water over the tea bag in my mug (I should have used my Downton Abbey mug, now that I think of it...). The hibiscus is a strong flavor in it but I can almost taste roses! My grandpa ate rose petals (something about them containing lots of nutrients) and I think he might have approved of this. As for a sweet taste, I did not find it sweet. I added some honey to it and it was divine. Also, stevia is not an artificial sweetener, so people please look things up before you write! I don't even taste the stevia (which can be overpowering in most cases). If you need a sleepytime tea, I recommend this one. The only thing that would have improved it, is to be more herbal..in the sense no roobios and no hibiscus. I would like to try a rose tea without the two. Thank you for the treat!

I purchased one of these as a gift for a fellow tea lover in the house. When she saw it was "limited", I was forced to buy three more just in case the teapocalypse comes. This tea is absolutely adored, but all I can say is that it smells wonderful. (I'm not allowed near her precious hoard!)

Stevia is NOT artificial! November 27, 2013

Suzy

Pasadena, CA

I have not tried this tea, but it sounds wonderful. I'm just writing to let the reviewers who said it tastes artificial know that stevia is NOT artificial! It is a natural sweetener that comes from a plant. You can literally chew the leaves of this sweet plant! I once had one and my children ate it till it was gone. Stevia is a wonderful sweetener, especially in teas and lemonades. It has no calories and is not unhealthy like saccharine or aspartame or the other scary chemicals they are making in laboratories. Knowing this, maybe you will think this tea tastes good!!! :)

This was a gift and I was very excited about it. The flavor sounded interesting and, of course, I'm a huge Downton Abbey fan. Very disappointed...did not like the artificial sweet taste...will not order any of this.

Simply Divine! October 25, 2013

Amanda

Huntington, IN

This beautiful fruity tea is simply divine. It smells fresh and juicy in the tin, and tastes sweet and smooth when steeped hot. It needs very little sugar and best of all it is caffiene free, so I can drink it while watching Downton Abbey before bed! I hope this tea sticks around. I would definitely buy it again, but it is very similar to Celestial Seasonings' Raspberry Zinger. I would recommend this tea to anyone who likes fruity herbal teas. Little ones would enjoy it as well!

It's okay...but why the stevia?? October 04, 2013

Ginna Plude

Middlefield, CT

For me this tea is just okay. There are other herb teas from RofT that I enjoy and would like choose to order again before I'd order Downton Abbey. What puzzles me is why one of the ingredients is stevia? Why would you pre-sweeten the tea? And if so, why use a manufactured sweetener? I actually try to avoid foods with stevia in them so that is another reason I'm not likely to buy again.

Step Back In Time September 18, 2013

Andrea

, TX

When my tea arrived, I opened the tin to catch a whiff of this splendid tea, and was overwhelmed with a delightful bouquet of rose, raspberries, and hibiscus. I must confess that I was torn on whether to try it hot or cold; however, a sultry Texas night prompted me to make iced tea. It was absolutely marvelous and oh-so-refreshing on this muggy night. At first sip, I was taken to an era of lords and ladies, and imagined myself sipping a tall, cool, glass of iced tea on the veranda with none other than the Crawleys themselves. My only regret is not ordering a second tin...make that a fourth tin. Bottom line: this is the stuff dreams are made of and I can't wait to add more to my collection. No doubt this will also make an excellent cup of hot tea. This Citizen is very impressed.

My 2 cans arrived...and already I have enjoy way too many cups! This tea does NOT disappoint! A subtle sweetness that almost needs no additional sweetener...i only added 3 drops of liquid stevia. Beautiful Rose pink color...and sweet rosy raspberry aroma. The taste is a sweet blend of rose, raspberry and hibiscus just perfect for tea while watching your favorite latest downton abbey episode. i will be ordering MORE!! my only qualm is why the sisters on the can?? this can should have the picture of the QUEEN OF DOWNTON, Maggie Smith!! :) love it love it

Hmmm I see you titles "see what our Citizens say about this tea" but maybe to continue with the English flavour of this particular tea it should read "see what our subjects say about this tea" lol! English people are Subjects of the Queen and not Citizens of the state as in USA. Good tea though!

Does Raspberry Rose Hybiscus have a new name? September 01, 2013

Carol

Chiang Mai, Thailand,

I have been sipping and enjoying Raspberry Rose Hibiscus Tea for months. It has suddenly vanished from your website to be replaced by your 'new tea'. Is this the same as my old friend? The ingredients appear to be the same!
