Teatime with Ollie's

Buying tea at a discount store can be iffy, but the prices at Ollie's Bargain Outlet are so cheap that I'm willing to give some new items a try. I got an entire bag of stuff for just $4.29 (including tax) on a recent visit there with my aunt. That included a box of 100 Earl Grey teabags, a box of Lipton's Tea & Honey Peach Apricot tea mixes, and a package of Tea Biscuits. The tea biscuits tasted rather like graham crackers but without the personality, if you know what I mean, so I ate mine with Nutella, which makes everything better. I loved the Peach Apricot iced tea, and I also liked the Alokozay Earl Grey tea.

I was happy to find the Earl Grey tea tasted very fresh and brisk. I have some loose Earl Grey, but it's never a bad idea to have some extra Earl Grey teabags around. This brand is packaged in the United Arab Emirates and imported from Canada.

But what really got my attention is the freebie that came with this $1.99 box of tea, as I probably wouldn't have been as tempted to try the Alokozay Earl Grey if it hadn't come with a free glass tea mug. All in all, a fine four-dollar purchase that day. Do you have an Ollie's near you?


  1. I've never heard of Ollie's but I love Earl Grey so I would probably have taken a chance on that one, too!

  2. yes, Nutella makes everything better!

  3. We do have an Ollies, but I have never been. I think I need to go there! ♥

  4. I haven't been to Ollies in a long time. It's always super junky and I never find anything. Maybe I need to try again.

  5. Never heard of Ollie's.
    I can imagine Nutella would make about anything better. I should buy some and try it.

  6. Looks like you found some fun treasures. We do have an Ollie's... looks like it's time to go shopping! One year, a customer called me because she spotted lace table toppers that had teapots and cups on them. I went flying out there! I also got lace chair toppers which I use at Christmas time. Another great Ollie's find.
