Higgins & Burke Roaring Black Tea

Higgins and Burke Roaring Black - KCup with Spoon

I always keep a stash of tea in places where I spend a lot of time. It is not unusual for me to be the only tea drinker and the British in me is too polite to throw away that cuppa made with stale cheap bagged tea.  A friend recently bought a pack of Higgins and Burke Roaring Black single serve Real Cups for her Keurig after her box of old orange pekoe finally ran out and she noticed me bringing[Read more]

Twinings Herbal Tea Variety Pack Review

Twinings Herbal Tea Variety Review Box

I am still trying to use up some of my teas to make space for more and this Twinings Herbal Tea variety pack has been sitting unopened for a while.  It came as part of a gift basket at Christmas and since I didn’t buy it, I am not sure why it counts towards what I have to drink before I can buy more.  Every so often, he waves the box at me saying “see you don’t need more tea, you haven’t[Read more]
