We both loved that show...
Trip, not quite the same thing .... but red rose tea (only in Canada, pity!) [okay, that was for the Canadians] used to have little stone figurines in every box of tea. I remember as kids, fighting to see who got to search for the figurine. We had 100's of them (we drank a lot of tea!). My mom had these in her curio cabinet. Worthless for sure, and I always thought she would divide these amongst us kids one day. A few years ago, when preparing to move from one home to another, she threw them all out. I was so upset. Every now and then, I will see these at flea markets, and contemplate rebuilding the collection.
