Bulk Barn Black Currant Black Tea Review

Bulk Barn Black Currant Black Tea Review - Brewed with Cups

Did you know that Bulk Barn sells loose tea?  And at super affordable prices.  If you want to try loose but are not quite ready to pay the big tea shop prices, it is a great place to start.  Or for those who just want to stock up on basic loose teas, amazing prices.  I tried several teas and will be sharing them over the coming weeks, the first is Black Currant black tea.  It is priced at $3.64 for[Read more]

Tea Themed Nails with Color Club Silver Lake and Messy Mansion MM62 Stamping Plate

Messy Mansion’s MM62 stamping plate has been on my wishlist forever, so when I got an email from Nail Polish Canada to say they had new plates (right after I made my Boxing Week sale order) I eagerly checked and may have squealed out loud when I saw MM62 on the list of new plates.

DAVIDsTEA 2016 Advent Calendar Day 7 – Nutty & Spice I am not a huge fan of nut teas, even the beautiful pink of Forever Nuts isn’t my thing so no surprise that this was not a favourite.  Nutty and Spice is a warming mix of oolong, fruit, nuts and spices.  The[Read more]

davidstea candy cane crush vs teavana white chocolate peppermint teas

Teavana’s White Chocolate Peppermint tea has been a Christmas fave of mine for a few years, but now that DAVIDsTEA Candy Cane Crush is available, how do they stack up?  Here is my comparison of the two teas (and why I will be buying more of both).
