Gary (who does the grocery shopping) 
found my favorite tea today.  

I had just used my last tea bag yesterday morning.  Last week the market had no Red Rose in stock.  

I generally used Tetley and I was not happy one day when they were out of that brand and he brought home a box of Red Rose.  I am a creature of habit and if I like a product,  I'm good...  no need to try anything else.   I had never heard of Red Rose before but I was sure it would be awful. 

When I found a little green porcelain mermaid in the box as a prize, I thought huh... that's cool.  It reminded me of when I was a little girl and would dig with a spoon in the back yard. One day I dug up a teeny tiny porcelain cup and I thought I had found a real treasure

So, finding this mermaid inside the Red Rose box was a pleasant surprise, but more of a pleasant surprise was the taste of the tea.  I loved it!  

Now I only want Red Rose.  I guess change is not so bad after all.  

And, guess what I found in my new Red Rose tea box today?

You guessed it!  A real treasure!

Hey Gracie, what do you treasure?

A little to the left Dad...  no... no..  a little to the right...  no, down a bit...  up, up a little ...  right there!  That's it!  Ahhhhhhh

oh.  my answer:  back and belly rubs.


  1. Tea with a prize? My something new for the day... Darling little 'prizes'!

    Nothing like a good back scratch - I could use one myself, Gracie!

  2. Sounds like a delicious tea and fun to get a prize!

    Wishing each of you a blessed Easter.

    Hugs to Gracie!

  3. Bobbi, You might enjoy blog friend Stephanie's mug exchange here:

  4. I have GOT to get a box! Tomorrow for sure, I can't wait to open the box and to try it. I have seen it since I was very young...

  5. Tasty tea and a prize to boot. What's not to love. GRACIE you have it good. Someone at your beck and call to scratch where you need it. ENJOY!

  6. We agree those little treasures are a blast from the past. Here we use to get them in cereal boxes. Gracie you enjoy some daddy time. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Red Rose tea has been around for years and years. I haven't had any for a long time though. I may have to get some next time I'm shopping now, I want to see what kind of prize I'll get too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. I have never heard of that tea. What a great idea to have treasures in the box:) Have a blessed Easter weekend dear friend, HUGS!

  9. I like those surprises; hardly see that these days! Happy Easter to you and your family Bobbi! And Gracie stay away from the chocolate Easter bunnies!
