Mid-way through #caffeinefreephona – Plus WIN a Blossom Blends herbal tea hamper!

Blossom Blends Tea

So, I’ve made it half-way through my caffeine-free month! Only a couple of hiccups, I’ve had a small amount of green tea when I was away at Billabong Retreat during the tea ceremony (wasn’t NOT going to take part) and there is some question aver the levels of caffeine in Chai latte syrups. There’s WAY more sugar than anything else, so good thing I’ve not quit sugar ;)

Fiona’s turning 30!

Along the way, I’ve gotten to try some different caffeine-free substitutes, including the range of herbal teas from Blossom Blends.

Blossom Blends Tea

Anne, from Blossom Blends sent me some samples. This is the inspiration behind the venture:

Blossom Blends is a boutique tea purveyor that started out in the humble recipe draw of my Nanna Mac’s kitchen. Every Sunday my family would drive to the sleepy country village of Hanwood (Population 583!) to visit her, have a chat, and enjoy a cup of her much loved tea blends.

Nanna Mac would have nothing but the fine things in life and nothing was truer when it came to her tea, if it wasn’t up to scratch she wouldn’t have it! There is nothing but the finest herbs, flower and fruits that go into a tin of our tea and the blends themselves have been polished by a qualified naturopath to make sure that the original goodness and nutritive properties is there for all to share and enjoy.

The six blends are:
– Get Up and Go Go
– Time Out
– Body Beautiful
– On the Wagon
– Complexion Perfection
– A Little Pick Me Up

on the wagon tea

Of the flavours I’ve tried, I have to say that the On the Wagon and A little pick me up were my favourite two blends, must ave been the spearmint influence!!! :) (or the little flowers bobbing around :)

Blossom Blends tea can be bought through the Facebook page, Etsy store and now through Hard to Find for $17 per tin.

    I’ve been avoiding caffeine while breastfeeding and have been missing tea. So…
    Get up and go-go, to replace that morning cup to get me going,
    A little pick me up, for those times when the sleep-deprivation of motherhood is getting me down, and…
    Time out. Because I deserve it.

    I can’t pick, they all sound delicious!

    I think I would like the pick me up. I always feel like a cup of tea in the afternoon but I dont want caffeine in the afternoon otherwise I cant go to sleep. And the tins look so pretty.

    A little pick me up for sure!

    I think the pick me up would be fabulous

    I quit sugar a little while ago. It’s been far more useful than quitting my other vices. Congratulations on quitting caffeine. That can be a big one!

    Tea is the best replacement for coffee which is known for its caffeine content, I will choose on the wagon.

  8. June 15, 2012 at 9:32 am

    I think On The Wagon looks delicious! I’d want to try that first x

  9. June 15, 2012 at 10:07 am

    Get up and Go Go would be perfect for my mornings!! I get up 3-4 times a night to tend to my son who won’t sleep.. I don’t drink coffee and its a lil too early to drink cola!

    How exciting! I would love to try the “pick me up” blend especially, it sounds like such a delicious combination. :)

    Oh wow these teas look yummy.. I like the look of pick me up or body beautiful!! Who doesn’t want both of those! ☺

    Well done for going caffeine free!! Not sure I’d have it in me!!

  12. June 15, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    I think I would choose “Time Out” and a “A Little Pick Me Up”. Their tins are so cute !

  13. June 15, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    I have been to the facebook page and simply can’t decide because they’re all things that I’ve never tried before. I’d be more than happy to try any combination.

  14. June 15, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Time Out. Although it’s really close between that, Body Beautiful and Complexion Perfection. I think I want a miracle. lol :)

  15. June 16, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    Hmm my choice would be Get Up and Go Go. Cute name too. :)
