Red Rose Tea K-Cups at Grocery
AB from Maine has spotted Red Rose Tea K-Cups at his local Shaw's in Bangor. These K-Cups are not licensed by Keurig, and we've had very few reader reports on how good they might be. After a little digging around it looks like there are a few varieties available which include:
- Red Rose Cinnamon Bun Keurig K-Cup 12 Cups Premium Black Tea Blend
- Red Rose Sweet Mint Keurig K-Cup 12 Cups Premium Black Tea
- Red Rose Vanilla Biscotti Keurig K-Cup 12 Cups Premium Black Tea
- Red Rose Spiced Chai Keurig K-Cup 12 Cups Premium Black Tea
There are some available on Ebay, but we've yet to see them online in many places. Let us know if you find them anywhere online in the comments.

I actually tried the Sweet Mint ones, as I found them at Walmart... and they are terrrible! It smells good, so you think they would taste good, but no. Soluble/instant tea is what it is, so these have become a rip-off. I'd rather pay an extra buck or two for a pack of these if they would use real tea leaves and mint leaves in a paper filter inside the k-cup, than to buy these the way they are. I wouldn't even buy a box of this for a penny! Yes, it's that terrible!
Was thinking the same thing. In my mind, "soluble tea" = tea powder, not actual tea leaves.
Chances are that's all this is... powder in a plastic K-Cup clone, minus the paper filter. Rather disappointing since the flavors seem interesting and Red Rose is usually a high quality brand of tea (well, this side of the border anyway... so much so that it's even more popular than Tetley or Tazo).
I searched on the Walmart website after seeing this article and found that they stock it at their supercenter stores. I was pretty excited at first since some of the flavors sound interesting. However, I read the description and it is soluble tea. I’m not so excited anymore.
