Disney Fans Will Freak Out Over This New Beauty and the Beast Tea

It seems that images of the new live-action Beauty and the Beast movie are everywhere, and we couldn’t be more excited. And now we can obsess over our favorite childhood movie while enjoying our favorite comfort: tea.

English tea company Twinings has debuted special-edition Beauty and the Beast packaging on some of its herbal tea blends, and it’s sure to bring a smile to any Disney-lover’s face.

The Lemon and Ginger tea features Emma Watson as Belle in her blue dress, while Belle in her iconic yellow dress adorns the packaging of the Camomile, Honey, and Vanilla flavor. The Pure Peppermint tea features the famous scene of Belle and the Beast dancing. Lastly, the Orange and Cinnamon Spice Tea features our favorite teapot, Mrs. Potts. Luckily for us, the teas will be available in the US in leading grocery stores and specialty stores until December of this year.

We can’t wait to get our hands on these adorable boxes and get even more excited to see Emma Watson play our favorite Disney princess. Keep reading to get a closer look at each tea in the collection.

This Is the Stupidest Mistake You Can Make at Trader Joe’s

It’s hard to go wrong at Trader Joe’s with so many solid and affordable options, but there is one mistake you could be making without even realizing it. If you’re not asking to try products before you buy them, you could end up wasting a lot of money on groceries in the long run. Yep, that’s right – Trader Joe’s has a “try before you buy” policy! In addition to its generous return policy, the store has a policy that allows customers to try just about anything that they’re unsure about buying. This includes snacks, produce, and ready-made foods like salads, sushi, and cheese.

I spoke to an employee at my local store and he confirmed that the only foods not included are raw or frozen foods (that require cooking) and alcohol (of course). This is not to say that you should be the annoying person who asks to try 20 things every time you shop there, but it means you should totally ask an employee to open up any new Trader Joe’s products you’re eyeing, like dark chocolate mango sorbet bon bons or sweet sriracha bacon jerky. It’s not likely that your bill will be superhigh anyway, but this is another way to save money at Trader Joe’s, and honestly, it’s just another reason to love the store.

Alton Brown and Bill Nye Are Joining Forces to Make Your Geekiest Dreams Come True


We’re beyond excited for the premiere of Bill Nye Saves the World on Netflix and for one reason in particular: Alton Brown makes a guest appearance.

In the trailer for Bill Nye’s new show, out April 21, we get a glimpse of fellow science geeks Alton and Bill up to something in a laboratory setting. As they toss their heads back in cackles of laughter, mysterious liquids in hand, we can only imagine what they’re concocting. If this episode is anything like a hybrid between Alton’s Eat Your Science tour and Bill’s classic performances, we’re in for a wild ride.

This news comes on the heels of Alton Brown’s announcement that Good Eats is returning, kind of. The Food Network host is bringing back a show similar to Good Eats but called something different and available only online. In a tease to his fans, Alton mentioned his relationship with Bill Nye – once calling him his “hero” – admitting, “I’m not the Bill Nye of food. He is way smarter and has more bow ties than I do.”

Whether Alton is the Bill Nye of food or not, there’s no denying that the reunion between the two is exciting. We’re ready for a lesson in nitrogen, crazy chemical reactions, and whatever other educational recipes these two have up their lab-coat sleeves.

Food nerds, unite! Watch the full trailer below.
