Weekend Event - Red Rose Tea

I couldn't let this event go by without a little national pride! Red Rose is a well known brand of tea in Canada. A different blend is sold in the US. In Canada, the tea is owned by Unilever. Red Rose was famous for it's premiums - little trading cards in the 60s and 70s that were brought back in the late 90s IIRC. Every Canadian of a certain vintage has at least one or two Wade figurines in their house somewhere. The figures fetch $6-8 a piece.
